Apple in 2022: iPhone 14, new MacBook Air, Apple Watch 8 and more


Not only are we anticipating the usual refreshes of iPhones, MacBooks and iPads, but the company is tipped to be taking its first step into a whole new product category with the launch of its AR glasses. Back in May, SEC documents showed Apple to be the largest customer of a business called Rockley Photonics, which happens to specialize in medical sensors for measuring everything from blood pressure to alcohol levels. At the time, the CEO said he expected the tech to arrive in consumer products in 2022, which is extremely exciting — especially given the long-running rumors that Apple one day hopes to make diabetics’ lives easier with non-invasive blood glucose measurements. The first generation of the Apple Mixed Reality headset will apparently offer similar computing power to the M1 chipset in Macs, and could feature dual 4K micro OLED displays. However, the same report suggests the car will ship with no steering wheel or pedals, so even that could be extremely optimistic, given the regulatory headache such a product could cause governments worldwide.
