The year 2022 is not over yet for Apple. After the September keynote, a new keynote should take place in October.
According to various sources, Apple should release a new keynote in October. In September, the Cupertino company presented its new products: the iPhone 14 and Apple Watch Series 8. In October 2022, iPads and MacBooks will be in the spotlight.
Currently, information regarding the holding of this keynote is unclear. Some people are announcing a recorded keynote around the end of October, while other people, including Mark Gurman, think that this event will never happen .
The likely announcements menu
The menu will be consistent: there will be ads for iPads, MacBooks, and new software. Let’s go through the probable products of this October keynote in detail:
The iPad would return for a tenth generation, with a USB-C port (instead of Lightning on the last generation), a Retina display with the exact resolution as the last iPad, and possibly an increase in screen size to 10 .9 inches diagonally, compared to 10.5 currently. The processor would be an A14 Bionic model.
In terms of design, some changes are expected in this new generation. In addition to the increase in screen size, there will be a chassis with sharper edges than the current model. The home button remains in the game, however, and should continue to offer biometric unlocking by fingerprint.
are expected Two new versions of the iPad Pro. This new pro version would be equipped with the M2 chip, giving it better performance. With these new versions of iPad Pro, battery life will be boosted. The new version of the tablet will also be entitled to new accessories and a MagSafe connection. Two versions could emerge:
- 11-inch iPad Pro with LCD screen
- 12.9-inch iPad Pro with miniLED technology
We should not attend a presentation of new designs but simply the integration of the Apple silicon M2 chip in existing models. Concretely, the Mac mini, but also on MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16″ will ship the M2 chip.
