It’s a new year, and people are hungry for more Apple gadgets. Fear not, Cupertino will likely not disappoint in that arena; rumors point to a March event with a refreshed iPhone and iPad, as well as upgraded MacBooks.
Apple has held an event in the Spring of each year for a good long time now. Its early-year events have become a key part of its yearly product release cycle.
The rumored date for the Apple Spring event is March 8, this comes according to noted high-profile insider Mark Gurman. Mark Gurman is the authority on Apple’s plans, so if anyone knows when this event will take place before the official announcement, it will be him.
Spring Apple Event
The event is expected to at least include the announcement of updated versions of the iPhone SE and the iPad Air.
The new iPhone SE has been repeatedly rumored to look the same as the iPhone SE from 2020. It looks very similar to the iPhone 8, but it will add the A15 Bionic chip, an improved rear camera, and 5G connectivity.
The new iPad Air is also expected to feature a newer A-series chip and 5G connectivity, with no major design changes. At least one new Mac with Apple-designed chips could also be introduced at the event. Meanwhile, the rumors have suggested that this might be the Mac mini.
The iOS 15.4 and iPadOS 15.4 updates may be tied to the March event and the launch of new devices, so it is plausible that the update could be released in the first half of March.
The March event won’t see the launch of the iPhone 14. We’ll have to wait until September for that. Next month’s event will focus on an update to Apple’s budget smartphone, the iPhone SE.
The March event is expected to be streamed digitally only, rather than be held with an in-person audience. Instead of the other Apple events that have taken place over the past two years. It will likely be followed later this year by WWDC, where Apple will introduce new software, and several keynote events later in the year.
