Apple May Show Two New Macs at WWDC 2022
Just the other day, Apple announced the date of the annual conference for developers WWDC, in 2022 it will be held from June 6 to 10. It is clear that the main products will be new versions of operating systems – iOS 16, macOS 13, WatchOS 9, and so on in the list. However, you probably know that from time to time, along with OS updates, Cupertino rolls out new gadgets. According to the latest data, two new computers can be presented to us at WWDC 2022. In today’s article, I propose to discuss what devices these will be and how likely such a scenario is.
What will be shown at WWDC 2022
Like it or not, the main product of any WWDC is new operating systems. According to the established tradition, we are waiting for the new iOS 16, which should have many innovations.
Also personally, I’m really looking forward to watchOS 9. Last year, Apple introduced what seems to be a completely disastrous watch operating system. Actually, there were no changes. Just think, they updated the Dahanie app, what an innovation! As for iPadOS 16, macOS 13, and other operating systems, I have no complaints about them. Share your thoughts in the comments below the post if you have any complaints about them.
Plus, if the latest report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman is to be believed, Apple could very well introduce new Macs as well. Gurman suggests that one of them will be the updated MacBook Air .
What will the new MacBook Air 2022 be like?
Rumors of a new 2022 MacBook Air have been around for quite some time. Last year, reports began to appear on the network about a radical change in the design of the airline of apple laptops. Until today, we have all been waiting for the presentation of Air in the fall of 2022, along with the iPhone 14 and iPad Pro. What will happen now is unknown. If it is shown already in the summer, it will, of course, be flint and a flint!
The specs of the MacBook Air 2022 should look something like this:
- Apple M2 processor.
- Memory: RAM 16/32 GB, ROM up to 2 TB.
- New colorful design.
- Keyboard Magic Keyboard in white.
We will finally see the new M2 chip . At first we waited for it on the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros. A little later, they predicted a new Mac Studio with a new chip, but Apple still did not dare. Well, with the MacBook Air, it will definitely be released. They won’t roll out the cheapest laptop with the M1 Pro in Cupertino, right?
If you believe Mark Gurman with his predictions, then to the question is it worth buying MacBook Air now , I have an unequivocal answer – it’s not worth it. Think for yourself, firstly, it would be a shame to buy a laptop that will become obsolete in two months. And it would be okay if it is purely technically outdated, so also the design, ports and other innovations. If suddenly nothing is shown at WWDC, then it won’t be far until autumn. Get yourself a device, and you will be happy for the rest of the time.
As for the second computer, Mark Gurman did not say anything. But we know that Apple is working on a number of other devices. Among the main contenders are the new Mac mini and iMac 24 and MacBook Pro 13 There were even rumors that the firmware would be released before Air, but now, apparently, everything has changed.
When is the new Mac mini coming out?
At the spring presentation, Apple introduced us to Mac Studio – a kind of hybrid between Mac mini and Mac Pro. Such a product lends itself poorly to logic. Especially considering that the machine on Intel is still hanging on the official site. It is likely that in Cupertino they will now update the minic, and only then they will take care of their laptops.
There aren’t too many leaks about the new Mac mini 2022 . Here’s everything we know so far:
- Chip M1 Pro and M1 Max.
- Design with rounded edges.
- The body is much smaller.
- Two colors: black and white (instead of one grey).
- Ports: 4 Thunderbolt, 2 USB-A, Ethernet, HDMI, new charging port (similar to iMac 24″).
Earlier, the author of AppleInsider.ru Ivan Kuznetsov mentioned Mac mini 2022 when he said that Apple would present us at the spring presentation on March 8, 2022. Yes, a colleague miscalculated a little, but Apple can release it at WWDC, right? Moreover, rumors about this car have been circulating for a long time.
When will iMac 2022 be released?
Another contender for an upgrade is the 24-inch iMac. And here it is still more unclear. On the one hand, it would be logical to roll out the iMac to the M1 Pro and M1 Max. For many, this device is not a typewriter, but a working tool. Over the past year, I’ve heard several serious complaints about the current iMac 24. They say it’s suitable for homework, but for something more serious, it’s better to take a MacBook Pro. We also used it.
On the other hand, it is quite possible that the same M2 will be installed in the iMac 24. I consider this alignment of events as a last resort, but it should not be ruled out one hundred percent. Just in this case, the iMac will turn into a monoblock for basic tasks.
