It’s possible that Apple still has a few Macs coming out this year, if the reports are accurate. How soon, however, can we expect it to happen? Apple may unveil new Macs at WWDC 2022, according to Mark Gurman, a Bloomberg analyst.

According to Gurman’s newest Power On(opens in new tab) newsletter, Apple is preparing to offer more Macs this year, and his forecast is based on that. Gurman thinks WWDC, which is right around the way and where Apple initially disclosed its ambitions to transition to its own processors, is the ideal place to introduce the new chips.


A mid-year or early-year release for two new Macs is expected, according to his sources. Since the start of WWDC on June 6 has already been set, this is an ideal time for such a launch. That is, if Gurman’s sources are right.

Apple’s M2 technology is expected to be included in the 2022 MacBook Air, according to Gurman’s sources. Though the details of the design are still up for dispute, it is believed to have a new look.

The front camera may be housed in a notch if Apple decides to reduce the size of the bezels. It is possible to see certain renderings, which are said to be from CAD drawings and have no notched pattern at all, despite this. Unfortunately, unlike the MacBook Pro 14-inch, it seems that the new laptop will not include a mini-LED display.


In addition to HDMI and SD card readers, we’d like to see MagSafe make a comeback after making a big splash last year. Following Apple’s choice to prioritise USB-C, these are the only features that current MacBook Airs do not have. As for which connectors will remain unique to the MacBook Pro, it’s not clear.

Other Macs expected to arrive this year include a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a Mac mini, and a 24-inch iMac, according to Gurman. In addition to the M2 processor, a new design, and the same set of connectors as the bigger MacBook Pros due in 2021, the MacBook Pro is the one we’ve heard the most rumours about.

Unfortunately for Gurman’s forecast, WWDC has traditionally been a software-oriented event. For a reason, it’s known as the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), and attendees tend to be from the computer software business.


New iOS 16, watchOS 9, tvOS 16, and more are expected to be the main focus of this year’s Apple event. However, Apple might still promote a few of these gadgets.
