Screen with holes for the iPhone 14 and new MacBook Air with M2 chip in 2022

In the latest edition of his Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reiterated his expectations for new Apple products in 2022, including the iPhone 14 series, a redesigned MacBook Air with an M2 chip, an iPad Pro with wireless charging, and even more.

According to Gurman, some iPhone 14 models to launch later this year will feature a screen with a hole, as analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has previously revealed. This screen will therefore occupy the entire front part with the exception of a small hole which will house the front camera. This is a similar solution to that often adopted on various Android smartphones. This design would involve removing the notch, while the Face ID system would likely be placed under the screen.

Apple is also planning the arrival of a redesigned MacBook Air powered by a new M2 chip that will be “slightly faster” than the M1 chip. The M2 chip is expected to carry an 8-core processor and a 9- or 10-core GPU, an upgrade from the 7- or 8-core GPU options for the current MacBook Air.

Still in the field of Macs, Gurman also speculates on the arrival of an Apple Silicon Mac Pro with a CPU of up to 40 cores and a GPU with 128 cores, accompanied by a new Mac mini and a new iMac plus large, which will replace the current 27-inch model still based on Intel. 2022 should be the year when Apple completes the transition from Intel processors to its Apple Silicon chips.

One of the most anticipated Apple products of 2022 is the AR / VR headset that has been talked about for some time now. The device could be announced during WWDC 2022, but at the moment there are no great certainties on this matter.

Finally, Apple plans to release a new iPhone SE with 5G, an iPad Pro with wireless charging support, and a ruggedized version of the Apple Watch. Which product are you most looking forward to?
