What to expect from Apple in 2023? iPhone 15, new MacBook, VR headsets and more

As a brand new year approaches, Apple fans are preparing to welcome a slew of fresh products that will revolutionize some old trends. According to online sources, the company is expected to launch the iPhone 15 lineup, new MacBook Pro M2 models, a highly anticipated AR VR headset and more in 2023.

2022 was a profitable year for the California-based tech giant as key product lines like the iPhone, Watch, iPad and MacBook garnered massive attention. However, the recent COVID-19 surge in China has caused many factories to close, affecting inventory levels and the supply chain.

With that, the company should be able to fix its supply chain deficits soon. Their stock is expected to increase in 2023, allowing for a seamless sale.

Aside from its existing products, Apple will also be focused on offering its annual dose of new-age, premium, and enhanced gadgets in 2023, all of which boast admirable specs. This article will shed light on the company’s launch plans for 2023.

Everything you can expect from Apple in 2023

According to reliable sources, the tech giant plans to release a number of new models for existing product lines. First of all, the company can be expected to stick to its unfailing annual trend of releasing a new line of iPhones every year.

In addition, fans can expect new iterations in the following product lines: MacBook Pro, Mac, iMac, Watch, HomePod, iPad Mini, iPad Air, iPad Pro, AirPods Max and finally the long-awaited AR VR headset.

The upcoming iPhone models are expected to feature influential design and build overhauls. According to sources, the upcoming series will enable a long-awaited change – the company is said to be moving away from its legendary Lightning standard and introducing USB Type-C ports to all iPhone 15 models. This sets a universal charging standard for all Apple devices.

Also, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max (possibly Ultra) could run on the A17 chip. It’s the company’s latest innovation in the mobile processing segment and is expected to receive massive RAM and camera upgrades.

Mac, MacBook and iMac

Fans can welcome a new iteration of the popular and overworked workstation, the Mac Pro. The model is expected to be powered by the next-gen M2 chip, and it may get some design overhauls.

New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with next-gen M2 chips (Pro and Max) and other upgrades may launch in the first half of 2023. The MacBook Air is also expected to feature a new model that will boast a 15-inch display for a niche user base. Unlike the new MacBook Pro, the 2023 MacBook Air may not get much improvement in the design and performance areas.

In addition, fans can expect a new Mac Mini with M2 and M2 Pro chips, an update of the 24-inch iMac powered by Apple’s rumored M3 chip, and a new 27-inch display.

According to sources, the device will come with two high-resolution 4K micro-OLED displays with up to 3,000 pixels per inch. It will contain a range of high-performance optical cameras, run on a proprietary operating system and have a separate AR/VR app store for exclusive experiences.

The iPad is undoubtedly one of Apple’s most popular brands. The Air and Pro series get upgrades every year, but the Mini was last updated in 2021 and deserves a refresh in 2023. Sources have indicated that the iPad Mini and iPad Air may be getting upgrades soon.

HomePod, Apple Watch and AirPods Max

The tech giant is rumored to be planning to launch a new HomePod model in early 2023. It is expected to feature a speaker with a touch-integrated display and an S8 chip. Of course, it will be an expensive variant of the HomePod Mini.

Finally, both the Apple Watch and AirPods are expected to be updated in 2023. However, there are no rumors suggesting what the changes might entail.
