Apple revealed today that its next event would be held online on March 8th, with an invite bearing the slogan “peak performance” and a colourful Apple logo that might hint at the hues of future products. Beyond the schedule of 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. The company hasn’t stated much about what the virtual event would include, according to PT.
Apple will demonstrate the gadgets in an all-virtual event that will be broadcast live on the company’s website. The business stated that it will be “broadcasting from Apple Park,” its Cupertino, California headquarters. Since the outbreak began two years ago, the tech giant has conducted online-only events. Apple is decisive when employees will return to work once the omicron variant weakens.
Apple’s invitation, which was received through email, has a rainbow Apple logo that moves across a black background. “Peek performance,” says the slogan. Apple didn’t indicate which goods it planned to unveil — it virtually never does — but it did include an augmented reality effect in their event marketing website, which might hint at something.
However, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, who is a frequent source of Apple rumours, believes Apple will unveil a low-cost iPhone SE. He claims that the new smartphone would include 5G, a speedier A15 CPU chip, and improved cameras. However, it will feature the same design as the present iPhone SE, implying that Touch ID will be preserved.
In the meanwhile, Gurman believes Apple will unveil the next iPad Air model. The new tablet is rumoured to come with a new processor and 5G connectivity for cellular variants. According to Gurman, Apple may also release the iOS 15.4 update, which would allow users to unlock Face ID-equipped iPhones and iPads while wearing a face mask. The next version is also rumoured to include a Universal Control feature, allowing users to utilise the same keyboard and mouse across numerous iPads and Macs.
Apple is likely to highlight its upcoming iOS 15.4 software, a free upgrade for its most current iPhones and iPads, at the next event. The business has previously stated that additional Face ID unlocks capabilities for medical masks, as well as anti-stalking warnings for its AirTag smart trackers, are in the works.
Another Mac with Apple-designed CPUs is reported to be on the way in March, although that is unlikely to be shown during this presentation. We won’t see the new iPhone 14 models, AirPods, Apple Watches, MacBook Air, iMac, or Mac Pro desktops, which are expected to arrive later in 2022.
