In the latest edition of his “Power On” newsletter, Gurman said that he expects Apple to launch five new Macs in 2022, including:

• A high-end iMac with Apple silicon to sit above the 24-inch ‌iMac‌ in the lineup
• A significant MacBook Air revamp featuring the “M2” chip and a new design
• An updated Mac mini
• A new version of the entry-level MacBook Pro
• A new Mac Pro with Apple silicon

Beyond the Mac, Gurman mentioned that he also expects to see an iPhone SE with 5G, new AirPods Pro earbuds, and the introduction of Apple’s first mixed augmented and virtual reality headset in 2022.

  1. Unbelievably irritating that Apple would change architecture on the Mac Pro so soon after the very expensive 2019 Mac Pro introduction. I’m all for progress but I also would like expensive items to have a little more shelf life. And yeah I know Apple will continue to support Intel Macs but for how long?

    1. Back in the early days, Apple gave a trade-in price for the uber-expensive Lisa so one could move to the Mac. Maybe history will repeat itself with the 2019 Mac Pro and and Apple Silicon Mac Pro. It could happen!

    2. “I know Apple will continue to support Intel Macs but for how long?” … just long enough to cover the extended warranties they sold; apple will drop intel as fast as possible just to say they have transition to apple silicon

      Hopefully the new Mac pros can match the 3990x AMD threadripper and nvidia RT3900 desktop gpu in terms of computing power, M1 max is great for laptops where power draw and thermals are so critical but apple currently has no answer for Highend desktop performance.

    3. Fesarius: I agree and, I’d say, Apple has done a very poor job is making their tech offerings something the regular customer AND the Pro/biz customer, could count on and plan for.

      Apple is has shown itself to be capricious with major pieces of software (FCP, OSX painful, but perfect choice), hardware (change you mentioned, Xserve, cables, ports, monitors) and “memberships” (ask the Apple Specialist_resellers). One could say, it’s their choice to make all the changes they want w/o such considerations. It’s true, but can be wearing, expensive and destabilizing.

      1. The good news with all of this is two fold. First, Apple has publicly committed to supporting existing Intel macs for years to come so any hardware investment will be protected.

        Most importantly, now that they are in charge of their own processors I expect to see more frequent and perhaps annual rollouts of updated versions of their major product lines much like they do with the iPhone.

    4. Your Mac Pro will stop working the day new M silicon Mac Pros ship?
      Didn’t think so. Keep using it for another year or two. That’s three years of good production use. Then move it to a secondary job for another 2-3 years.

    5. ” I’m all for progress but I also would like expensive items to have a little more shelf life.”

      Before anyone buys a Mac, they should do a little study on Apple’s philosophy in “moving forward” yearly, instead of touting their latest and greatest over a 2 year period without change. I remember the exact same complaint from the late ’80s when a guy was angry over buying a IICX? and had it trumped with a IICi? within 6 months. Apple does not sit still.

      Through the years, I have heard this complaint from others on other forums and even here.I bought a MacBook Pro M1 nine months ago. I knew they were going to improve and upgrade but didn’t know the specifics. That didn’t make me frustrated when I learned of the new M1 Max Pro or M2 etc. I’m glad Apple’s R&D does move forward when they can.

  2. Looking forward to the new base level MBP. Of course, if Apple included standard features (more than 2 ports—one of which is for charging, SD slot) on the MBA, I’d be just fine with one of those. But since these are now apparently considered “pro” features, I will wait for a reasonably-priced MBP. The recently-refreshed MBPs are nice, but they are far too expensive for someone on the border of MBA/MBP territory
