First Apple event of 2022: these are our expectations

In a few months it will be time, then it will be time for the first Apple event of 2022. What Apple will show is not quite sure yet, but that’s okay. We have already listed our expectations for this first Apple event for 2022!

Read on after the ad.

First Apple event of 2022: the expectations

When you look at past years, Apple hosts four events a year. There is usually a spring event in March or April, a WWDC around June, a September keynote featuring new iPhones, and an October event focused on new Macs.

In addition, Apple likes to stick to traditions, which is why there are already many rumors about various new products. We can therefore already make a good estimate of Apple’s plans for the next event.

So Apple usually organizes an event in March or April, so we expect the first event of this year to take place around this time as well. The 2021 event was very spectacular, as Apple introduced the AirTags, a 24-inch iMac and new versions of the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

iPhone SE 2022 (with 5G)

What we almost certainly expect is the announcement of the new iPhone SE 2022, with support for 5G. The most important innovation of the iPhone SE 2022 is the more powerful chip. The rumors indicate that Apple will provide the device with the A15 Bionic chip. You know that one, because this is the same processor as in the iPhone 13 series and the latest iPad mini.

Other than that, not much will change in the appearance and the iPhone SE 2022 looks a lot like the previous version, the iPhone SE 2020. The home button is also still there and Touch ID returns as well. Furthermore, the iPhone SE 2022 (again) will have a 4.7-inch LCD display with 3GB of RAM. What is new: the iPhone SE 2022 probably has support for 5G.

New 27-inch iMac (Pro) with M1

Early last year, Apple launched an all-new iMac with a 24-inch display. Since then, many users have been waiting for the larger version. What we expect during the first Apple event in 2022 is a new 27-inch iMac with M1 chip, mini-LED and smaller screen edges. In addition, this new iMac will get the ProMotion refresh rate of 120 Hz.

There have also been rumors that Apple wants to switch to OLED displays instead of mini-LEDs for some Macs and iPads. According to screen specialist Ross Young, that will take a while. The expert explains that we can expect an OLED iPad or MacBook in 2023 at the earliest.

New Mac mini with M1 Pro or M1 Max

The Mac mini, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air were the first to receive an M1 chip from Apple. But the current high-end Mac mini still has to make do with an Intel chip. That’s why a new high-end Mac Mini is probably coming, with an M1 Pro or M1 Max chip.

The new Mac mini not only gets the faster chip, but also has a new design. Furthermore, the expectations are that the improved Mac mini will get more connection ports.

According to Jon Prosser, by FrontPageTech, the new Mac mini gets a round magnetic connection for the power adapter, and the computer has a ‘top made of plexiglass’. The Mac mini also seems to be a bit flatter than the current generation.
