Apple’s 2021 is nearing its conclusion and there are very few products left to unveil – especially after the latest event dedicated to the iPhone 13 that also brought the new sixth-generation iPad mini – and what remains is the announcement of the first MacBook Pros equipped with M1X SoCs.
However, it seems that next year there will be important news on almost every front; according to what emerges from the latest update of the Power On newsletter by Mark Gurman, the Bloomberg journalist very close to everything that happens in the world of the bitten apple.
According to Gurman, in fact, during 2022 it is likely that Apple will show a preview of its first AR device; or the much talked about Apple Glass, which will not be marketed ( almost certainly ) during the same year; but will arrive with all probability during 2023. A similar thing also happened on the occasion of the presentation of the Apple Watch; introduced at the end of 2014 only to be marketed in 2015.
Among the other innovations of 2022 there should be an important update on the iPhone front; probably in line with the rumors that have emerged recently; the renewal of the MacBook Pro and Air line with the new Apple Silicon M2, new AirPods Pro and even a refresh. Of the design of the iPad Pro, which now adopt the same lines since 2018; even if this allows perfect compatibility with some very expensive accessories .

Gurman goes even further, remembering that Apple’s lineup will also include a new generation of HomePods that will integrate some Apple TV features and even a camera for using FaceTime, so there should also be a display for calling, but this product will not launch in 2022, just as it is not the first folding iPhone that could appear in the Cupertino list only starting from 2023.
2021 has certainly not been a year lacking in news for Apple, especially if we consider the complete change of design of the iMac, the expansion of M1 to the iPads and the first attempts to reduce the notch on the iPhone, but the real renewal is expected for the next year and there seems to be a lot of meat on the fire.
2022 is certain to be a stronger showing, with as many as three new Apple Watch models; a major iPhone upgrade, revamped Mac Pros and MacBook Airs with Apple Silicon; new AirPods Pro earbuds, and an updated iPad Pro design. Oh, and don’t forget a potential preview of Apple’s future mixed-reality headset.
Also don’t ignore what else the company has cooking in its labs. An all-new home device that combines a HomePod with an Apple TV and FaceTime camera; Apple Watches with even more health sensors, a foldable iPhone and true AR glasses. I wouldn’t start clamoring for any of these yet, though; as all of them are probably still between two and four years away.
