Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman published another issue of his “Power On” newsletter over the weekend, and as usual, it included quite a few tidbits. Gurman says Apple’s first event of 2022 will likely take place in March or April. At the event, Gurman says the event will feature a new iPhone SE with a faster processor and 5G support.
“Apple’s first virtual event of 2022 is coming up in just a few short months and is likely to take place in either March or April, I’m told,” wrote Gurman.
Apple held an April 20 event in 2021, where it unveiled its AirTag item tracker, new iPad Pro and 24-inch iMac models powered by the M1 chip, the second-generation Apple TV 4K, and a new purple color option for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini.
Apple did not hold a spring event in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March of that year. Apple did announce new products on its website in spring 2020, including updated MacBook Air and iPad Pro models on March 18 and the second-generation iPhone SE on April 15.
Gurman says that in addition to a new iPhone SE, we might see an announcement of a new 27-inch iMac and high-end Mac mini models with M1 Pro and M1 Max chips announced at a spring event.
Gurman also says he’s close to certain that WWDC will once again be a virtual event this year.
