We’re five months into 2022 with the Worldwide Developers Conference on the horizon, which will be followed soon after by Apple’s September event. The second half of the year is shaping up to be exciting as rumors suggest we can expect a range of updated Macs, iPhones and accessories about to launch. In our latest YouTube video, we’ve rounded up the five products we can’t wait to get our hands on.

  • Macbook Air – The MacBook Air gets its biggest refresh since 2010, putting it at the top of our list. Apple is pushing a new iMac-like design, which means the ‌MacBook Air‌ should get fun new colors, off-white bezels, and a white keyboard like the 24-inch iMac. It’s also going to get a new look, with Apple eventually ditching the tapered look for a sleeker MacBook Pro-style look. Rounding out the upgrades, the ‌MacBook Air‌ is expected to be one of the first to adopt the M2 chip, a sequel to the M1. The ‌M2‌ is rumored to feature an 8-core CPU and either a nine or 10-core GPU.
  • Mac Pro – The Mac Pro is perhaps the most exciting product to come in 2022 as it will see Apple complete its transition to Apple Silicon. After the release of the ‌Mac Pro‌, Apple will no longer depend on Intel chips, and the Mac Studio has shown us that the Apple silicon chip in the ‌Mac Pro‌ is going to be impressive. The ‌Mac Pro‌ is expected to feature a chip with a 40-core CPU and 128-core GPU, which is double the M1 Ultra.
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max – All iPhone 14 models will be an upgrade over the iPhone 13 models, but we picked the 14 Pro Max because it’ll get all the bells and whistles. It won’t have a notch, with Apple instead implementing a dual-display cutout look with a pill-shaped cutout and a circular cutout. It will come in new colors, include camera improvements, and have a faster A16 chip, which actually won’t be available on the ‌iPhone 14‌ and 14 Max.
  • AirPods Pro – Apple will finally refresh the AirPods Pro in 2022, and they might have an all-new design that does away with the short stem at the bottom. Apple is testing a more rounded and compact shape. There are also rumors that the next-gen AirPods will support Apple Lossless audio and improved Find My integration that will allow them to play audio if they are lost.
  • Apple Watch Series 8 – Last but not least, the launch of the Apple Watch Series 8 is going to be interesting because there’s a new model coming this year – a rugged model. In addition to the standard ‌Apple Watch Series 8‌, Apple is reportedly working on a more durable version of the Apple Watch aimed at athletes, hikers, and those who use the watch in more extreme conditions. A body temperature sensor and car crash detection are also rumored features.

What do you think of our list? What do you expect from Apple? Let us know in the comments.
