Apple will Host its Next Hardware Event on March 8th

Apple started sending invitations for its first event in 2022, which will take place on March 8th at 10 am PT.  

The invite, which usually offers slight hints as to what we can expect from tech mogul, features the words “Peek Performance.”  

As such, the American giant is expected to launch the next-gen iPhone SE and iPad Air, along with new Macs. An M2 chip may also be coming as part of the transition to Apple Silicon, according to a Bloomberg report.  

An updated model is overdue, considering the last iPhone SE was launched in 2020. In addition, Apple’s compact, sub-$400 handset is one of the last remaining to still have a home button on the front below the display.  

More features include a single rear camera, which looks like phones dating back to five years. However, this year’s model may bring Face ID and 5G support, with a design that could be similar to 2018’s iPhone XR.  

Apple SVP Marketing, Greg Joswiak published a video on a tweet with the caption: “Peek performance. March 8th. See you there. #AppleEvent”  

Despite the Russian assault on Ukraine, Apple will continue to go forward with the online event.  

The iPhone parent may take advantage of this opportunity to introduce a new iPhone SE with 5G connectivity, an updated iPad Air with better specs across the board, and new Mac models with Apple Silicon.  

It is worth mentioning that the iOS developer has been refreshing its entire Mac lineup to replace Intel CPUs with Apple chips.  

There are many possibilities for new computers, such as a new entry-level MacBook Pro, a more powerful Mac Mini, a redesigned MacBook Air, or even some new Mac Pro and iMac Pro models. The company will not release all-new Mac models at once, though, so we’ll have to wait a few days to obtain further information on the matter. 

Past springtime Apple events have also focused on Apple’s ever-growing services business, as we’ve talked about previously. 

The only Apple services update I want to see is a storage upgrade for iCloud’s free 5GB tier, but the company offers several other services it chose to maintain its focus on.
