It’s no longer a secret that Apple is planning a first keynote for 2022 on March 8. If the third-generation iPhone SE and new iPads are firmly expected, rumors increasingly agree that Apple would take advantage of this conference to renew its range of laptops and desktop computers, the MacBooks. and iMacs. A new clue was also spotted on Monday, and it is rather equivocal.
It was our colleagues from Consomac who discovered the information. According to them, Apple filed three new products with the Eurasian Economic Commission. This commission, dependent on the Eurasian Economic Union, ensures the free circulation of products between the different states of the union. The countries concerned are Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan.
The three new products would be Macs and would be numbered A2681, A2615, and A2686. The first would concern a portable Mac, as indicated in the product sheet of the EEC. Such information is absent from the sheet of the other two products, which would then be desktop computers, and therefore iMacs.
On the other hand, no other information makes it possible to further identify these three products. It is therefore impossible to know if the portable Mac is a new MacBook Pro, or if it will be the long-awaited redesign of the MacBook Air. As for the iMacs, a new iMac and a Mac mini would be in the boxes of Cupertino.
Finally, the registration of these products is not a guarantee that Apple will present them in the near future, at the conference in early March. Other products are more expected for the spring, and Macs could then have a conference dedicated to them at WWDC in June.
