Apple is reportedly planning to release a “deluge” of new products in the coming months.
Bloomberg reports(Opens in a new window) that Apple is prepping significant updates to the iPhone, iPad, and Mac lineups, as well as new iterations of the Apple Watch, HomePod, and Apple TV. And, of course, the outlet seems to remain confident that Apple will release an augmented reality headset soon.
“From what I’ve been told,” Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says in his Power On newsletter, “the company is about to embark on one of the most ambitious periods of new products in its history—with the deluge coming between the fall of 2022 and first half of 2023.”
Several of the new products mentioned in the report—including the iPhone 14 with its always-on display, a new model of iPad with a USB-C port, and upcoming generations of the Apple Watch—have either been reported previously or make sense given Apple’s typical update cycle.
But the report also suggests that Apple will release new versions of the M2 chip (and the corresponding models of Mac computers in which they reside) sooner than later. Bloomberg says Apple plans to release the following chip-and-computer combos in the near future:
“Those are likely to come in much quicker succession than the M1-based Macs did,” Bloomberg reports, and Apple is reportedly planning to use the M2 chip in its AR headset. The company is also said to be planning to release the M3 chip in 2023 alongside a 15-inch MacBook Air.
