California’s tech company Apple’s first big event in the year 2022 can be held on March 8 next month. There are indications that the company may launch a new affordable 5G iPhone, an iPad model, and a new Mac model at this event. Earlier, iPhone 13 series were launched by Apple in September 2021 and the MacBook Pro laptop models in October 2021. This event of Apple will be completely virtual.
Long wait for iPhone SE 2022
The low-cost 5G iPhone that Apple is going to bring this year could be the iPhone SE 2022. Apple’s cheapest iPhone model right now is the iPhone SE 2020, which comes with hardware based on the iPhone 8. The new model may offer a bigger display with a similar design. However, Apple can offer Touch ID support in this too and it will come with the latest 5G connectivity.
Specifications of iPhone SE 2022
The iPhone SE 2022 can also get a 4.7-inch LCD display with wide bezels and a Touch ID. In a new report by 9to5Mac, it has been told that users will not get the support of MagSafe technology in iPhone SE 2022. In terms of design, the new iPhone SE model will be similar to the previous one. However, the A15 Bionic processor given in the iPhone 13 series can be found in this. The company can give more internal storage in it than the previous SE model.
Apple can also launch the new iPad Air (5th generation) at the March event itself. However, very little information related to this has been revealed. This could be an upgraded model of the existing Air model.
Currently, the 4th generation of Apple iPad Air is available in the market, which was launched in October 2020. Last year the company has brought the iPad mini model, and this year the Air model may also come.
Leaks and rumors have surfaced that a Mac device with Apple’s in-house M1 processors will also arrive in March. Apple launched MacBook Pro with new processors in October 2020, so new MacBook Pro models are unlikely to arrive this year.
In such a situation, the company can present MacBook Air or iMac with a 27-inch display in this event. The company can also give information about the iOS 15.4 update and its features at the event.
