After the launch of the new iPhone 14, second-generation Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra and even the second generation of AirPods Pro, Apple does not have much more product margin for the Keynote than expected to celebrate next october. Later we will tell you what is almost certainly going to be presented, but first we go with what could be the big surprise of the year.
A long-awaited surprise
Since the Cupertino company launched the 24-inch iMac with M1 chip, many users have been waiting a pro version of this equipment, which has greater capabilities and, above all, offers a larger screen. Apple’s plans are not really known regarding this hypothetical iMac Prosince it was initially thought that it had been replaced by the combination of the Mac Studio with the Studio Display, something that many analysts later denied.
In addition, the launch of this equipment could make all the sense in the world, since it is foreseeable that all current equipment will be renewed with their corresponding versions of the M2 chip, leaving only two equipment to present to close the entire range of Macs, which are this hypothetical 27-inch iMac and Mac Pro, which also has many ballots to see the light in this next event. Thus, Apple would close the entire transition to its own chips, as announced at the time with the presentation of the M1.
What will be presented?
We put speculation aside and go with what we know will be presented with almost total certainty given the leaks and rumors that have been surfacing for weeks. Historically, the event held in October or November is always dedicated to the iPad and Mac, and there really aren’t many more products to renew.
First, the iPad range will be slightly renewedthe input team does seem to have a major facelift, both inside and outside, while the iPad Pro is only expected to jump to the M2 chip and match specifications between the 11 and 12 model ,9 inches.
Something similar will happen with the range of computers, and that is that after the entry of the M2 with the MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro, in theory the rest of Macs already present will update to their corresponding range of M2ie the iMac will make the jump to the M2, the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros will get the M2 Pro and M2 Max, the Mac Studio will get the M2 Max and M2 Ultra options, just as the Mac mini looks set to suffer a slight change, since it will predictably be able to be configured with an M2 and an M2 Pro, something that could also happen to the 24-inch iMac.
