We''re still waiting for the rumored Apple product launches to happen. However, if and when they do, it''s sounding like they''ll be focused on new iPads and Macs.
Dohyun Kim, a Twitter leaker, claims that by the end of October, new iPad and iPad Pro models, as well as new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, and a new Mac mini, will be announced. This is consistent with other Apple rumors, and the tech tipster consensus is that Apple will continue to launch tablets and computers.
Apple product speculations in October (Updated October 16)
Apple is to launch a 10.2 iPad (10th gen)- 11 iPad Pro w/ M2- 12.9 iPad Pro w/ M2- 14 MacBook Pro w/ M2this month!!October 12, 2022
iPad 2022 (10.2 inch)
First, there should be a standard iPad 2022, which might be the most significant upgrade of all new products. It has been alleged to receive a major revamp in line with the iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad mini, as well as a much larger display and a USB-C connection.
Since Apple''s is thought to be only announcing this batch of goods by press release rather than at an event, it would be odd to introduce such a major change without full fanfare.
iPad Pro 2022
The iPad Pro 2022 is expected to move from the current Apple M1 processor to a new MacBook Air M2 processor as well as a 13-inch MacBook Pro M2. Other than that, rumors of wireless charging and a new smart connector have emitted.
The new iPads will be running the iPadOS 16 out of the box, along with the new Stage Manger feature for improved multitasking. Apple has reportedly been tweaking this and other features behind the scenes, and we''re still awaiting the release this month.
MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch with M2 Pro
It''s widely predicted that we''ll see new MacBook Pro with M2 Pro models this month. These may only differ from the previous 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro, according to reports. M2 Pro and M2 Max are both expected to build on the M2''s enhanced architecture, which will require more CPU and GPU cores to ensure pro-level performance.
The 14-inch MacBook Pro and the 16-inch MacBook Pro are among the best laptops, owing to their already speedy performance and long battery life. We appreciate the wide variety of ports that include HDMI and an SD Card slot. So, Apple doesn''t have to reinvent the wheel here.
mac mini 2022 with M2
On desktop machines, we might also see a Mac mini 2022 with a standard M2 chip to replace the Mac mini M1 that was delivered at the end of 2020. So, the biggest change might simply be more power.
Jon Prosser, a licensor, claimed in May that the next Mac mini might be smaller and would include additional ports. Specifically, he claimed that the next Mac mini will include the same magnetic charging connector as for the new iMac 2021, as well as four Thunderbolt ports, two USB-A ports, and Ethernet and HDMI ports.
However, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the future Mac mini will not undergo a design refresh when it gets released.
macOS Ventura and iPad OS 16
The Mac and iPad operating systems'' latest version were postponed due to a September release, presumably to allow Apple more time to correct flaws. Both the macOS and iPadOS versions have already been confirmed by October.
At the time of writing, we''re about halfway through October, which allows Apple to wait another two weeks to bring us the devices we''re expecting. However, take a look at our best iPads and MacBooks tips to see what your current top choices are.
