After the much-hyped ''Far Out'' event on September 7, Apple reportedly planned to host four events in a calendar year, with the last one being usually focused on the Mac and the iPad in a less-hyped manner.
According to Bloomberg''s Mark Gunman, Apple might not have many significant developments left for 2022 that would require an additional standalone marquee event or marketing expenditure. This is despite the fact that the company is anticipated to announce an updated iPad Pro, Mac mini, and 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models this year. Apple is more likely to release its remaining product updates for the calendar year 2022 via press releases, website updates, and selective media briefings rather than a full-fledged digital or physical event, according to
The upgraded 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, the Mac mini, and the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are expected to transition to the M2 chip; the new processor that was announced during Apple''s WWDC event on the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro is expected to be released.
According to Gurman, Apple might also unveil its upgraded Apple TV set-top box with a Snapdragon 825 processor this year. However, aside from the recent chip transition, the remaining upgrades for the Macs and iPad, as well as the Apple TV set-top box, will be relatively routine incremental ones, thus not demanding another event.
Although unusual, such a move isn''t unanswered for the company, as it has previously chosen to provide other important products such as the AirPods Max and the Original AirPods Pro.
