December 7, 2023

Yesterday’s iPhone 15 occasion revolved solely across the iPhone 15/iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Professional/Professional Max, and Apple Watch Sequence 9 (together with Apple Watch Extremely 2). Consequently, no new iPads, Macs, or audio merchandise had been introduced. This information isn’t shocking, and the omissions counsel one other Apple occasion might happen earlier than the yr’s finish, though this has but to be confirmed and should not occur for a number of weeks.

There are lots of would-be Apple merchandise that might make appearances within the coming weeks or months — however weren’t proven at at the moment’s occasion.

New iPads

Apple’s “Wonderlust” occasion got here with out the announcement of a brand new iPad. This isn’t the primary time Apple has determined to not unveil a brand new pill at its September occasion. The final time one did launch was in 2021 when the iPad mini 6 was introduced on the iPhone 13 occasion.

Nevertheless, there’s nonetheless hope for these ready for a brand new iPad to reach earlier than the top of the yr. The present iPad Professional lineup and iPad (tenth technology) had been unveiled in October 2022, whereas the iPad Air (fifth technology) has been stocked in shops since March 2022. Moreover, the iPad mini 6 is now two years outdated, so it’s doubtless that we’ll see at the least a brand new iPad Air or iPad mini launch earlier than the calendar turns to January.

An Eleventh-generation iPad is also within the works, however since Apple simply launched a brand new model final yr, that appears to be much less doubtless.

One iPad that isn’t anticipated to look recent in 2023 is the iPad Professional. Apple isn’t prone to reveal new iPad Professional fashions till subsequent yr.

Apple AirPods are among the many hottest audio merchandise on the planet. Nevertheless, they don’t seem to be up to date regularly. Although Apple launched the second-generation AirPods Professional a yr in the past, there was no replace on the common AirPods entrance for nearly two years. And it has been practically three years for the reason that AirPods Max had been unveiled. All of those are prime candidates for important updates, and none of that occurred through the iPhone 15 occasion.

What was introduced is a brand new USB-C charging case for the AirPods Professional 2 (see above). The case arrives alongside the brand new iPhone 15 sequence on Friday, September 22.

M3 Macs

It’s common for Apple to maintain new Mac releases separate from their annual September iPhone occasions. Equally, the most recent occasion didn’t embrace any bulletins for brand new Macs. Nevertheless, when Apple does launch new Macs, it’s anticipated that the long-awaited “M3” chip will lastly make its debut. It’s most certainly that this new chipset will first be seen in a next-generation 13-inch MacBook Air, which was final up to date in June 2022.

We gained’t see any M3 Professional, M3 Max, or M3 Extremely chips till the M3 chip itself is launched. The 14-inch MacBook Professional and 16-inch MacBook Professional had been up to date with the M2 Professional and M2 Max in January, so it’s unlikely that there will likely be one other replace for these fashions this yr.

A black Apple Watch Extremely 2

Throughout Apple’s iPhone 15 occasion, the corporate introduced the discharge of the second technology of its Apple Watch Extremely. The brand new machine boasts an improved look and up to date internals. Nevertheless, one thing was lacking from the announcement. The rumor mill recommended that the Apple Watch Extremely 2 could be unveiled in a modern darkish titanium end, however that didn’t materialize. As a substitute, this yr’s mannequin seems to be remarkably much like final yr’s with its gentle titanium end.

What occurred? It’s doable that the rumors had been merely incorrect this time round. Alternatively, it’s additionally doable that Apple wasn’t able to reveal a darker titanium end simply but and should achieve this later.

Apple TV

The most recent Apple TV launched in November 2022, so there was no motive we’d see a brand new one pop up on the iPhone 15 occasion. And but, it was solely doable that one thing on the leisure entrance might have nonetheless been introduced. Nevertheless, with a lot of Hollywood shut down because of strikes, saying something entertainment-related would have been in dangerous style.

Is anybody nonetheless holding out hope for Apple to launch a Fireplace TV streaming stick-like machine? Anybody?

One other occasion?

Apple held just one fall press occasion in 2022, to introduce the iPhone 14 sequence, whereas a number of occasions had been as soon as frequent. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, there have been three fall occasions, and one yr later, two occasions had been held, one in September and one other in October.

It’s doable that Apple might maintain one other occasion and even two earlier than the top of the yr. If this occurs, we will count on to obtain some bulletins within the coming weeks. Any such occasion is extremely prone to concentrate on new audio merchandise, and a brand new iPad can also be launched. Nevertheless, it’s unlikely {that a} new Mac will likely be launched within the the rest of 2023. If one had been to be launched, it might doubtless be one other 13-inch MacBook Air. If not, we most likely gained’t see any new Macs till early subsequent yr.

Maybe Apple plans to carry one other occasion in 2023, particularly for the discharge of Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional in 2024. If that’s the case, all bets are off on what else might be introduced. Keep tuned.
