Rumor mill: Following Apple’s most recent WWDC, Bloomberg sources suggest the company plans to launch several new products this year and next. Reports include information on multiple models of iPhone 14, Apple Watch, and Mac along with other devices.
have resources told Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman expects Apple to launch one of its most ambitious lineups ever between now and the first half of 2023. Within that roster, months of rumors and speculation are already telling us a lot about the upcoming iPhone 14, but Gurman has a few new details.
Like the iPhone 13 and 12, the iPhone 14 will be available in four models: two pro variants (codenamed D73 and D74) and two non-pro variants (D27 and D28). Instead of releasing a 5.4″ iPhone 14 mini as in previous generations, Apple will produce a non-Pro model with a 6.7″ screen — the same size as previous Pro Max phones, but presumably without. other Pro features. The new non-Pro phones will keep the A15 chip from the iPhone 13 instead of upgrading to the A16 from the Pro models.
All variants will keep the Lightning cable, although previous rumors suggest a USB-C iPhone will be released next year. Other rumors say that the iPhone 14 will have a much-improved 48-megapixel camera and possibly an always-on lock screen.
On top of the new M2 MacBook Pros Apple announced this month, there could be seven more in the pipeline.
The M2 could also power Apple’s upcoming mixed reality headset, which other reports say will be a “game changer” when it arrives next year.
Apple may debut the M3 in a MacBook Air as early as next year.
Another new chip that Apple is reportedly developing is the S8 for upcoming Apple Watch models. It will have the same specs as the previous S7 and S6, but next year’s Apple Watches will have a new processor (presumably the S9). However, the S8 is set to power a new HomePod next year. Nicknamed the B620, the size and sound quality will be similar to the original HomePod, but it will feature a new screen and possibly multi-touch features.
In addition, Apple is planning a new Apple TV. Codenamed J255, it will have an A14 chip compared to the 2021 model’s A12, as well as another gigabyte of RAM.
