Anticipating Apple’s (AAPL) ‘Peek Performance’ Spring Event
Apple Inc.’s (AAPL) scheduled spring event on March 8, 2022, is rumored to be about internal upgrades and tweaks to the iPhone SE, the iPad Air, and the Macbook Pro.
iPhone SE 3 and iPad Air 5
The iPhone SE, which was launched in 2016, received an upgrade in April 2020 and is one of the most popular budget Apple smartphones.
The March 2022 version may now be fitted with the A15 Bionic processor currently used in iPhone 13. The new version may also have a better camera and 5G capabilities, allowing faster browsing and larger downloads. Faster processing and browsing is good news not just for users but for carriers as well.
On the flip side, the new SE 3 is rumored to continue to feature the dated home button and large bezels.
A new version of the iPad Air is also supposed to be in the works and will also have 5G and a faster processor. Both the iPhone SE 3 and the iPad Air 5 may have upgraded cameras of 12 megapixels.
The Macbook Pro, whose most recent upgraded version came in October 2021, may carry the much awaited Apple M2 processor for the first time, improving the new Pro’s performance. But whether the launch will be in March remains to be seen.
The March event could unveil the M2 in Macbook Air instead, with the Macbook Pro getting fitted out with the upgraded chip later in the year.
Apple’s proprietary silicon technology has been contributing to revenue growth since 2020, when the company moved away from using Intel Corporation’s (INTC) chips.
The M1, M1 Mac, and M1 Pro showed superior capabilities in intensive tasks such as video editing several high-resolution videos while facilitating an impressive battery life.
Two years after Apple’s first proprietary chip, the competition between Intel—whose Alder Lake mobile chip is its most powerful chip to date—and the M2 for faster and more powerful processors is still on and will be a closely watched one this year.
