Apple will begin production of AirPods with new updates early next month. A rumor has recently surfaced that Apple will include a new iPhone 5G in its production line for 2022, including a revamped iPhone SE with the new A15 processor.
For some time now there has been talk of the appearance of basic Apple AirPods, with previous generations released in 2016 and 2019. In May, Bloomberg reported that the headphones will have a similar design to the AirPods Pro. “Production will begin next month , we can expect AirPods with a new look unveiled alongside the iPhone 13 in September.
In addition to headphones, Apple may also release new versions of the MacBook Pro later this year, as Nikkei says. This rumor seems to take shape, with previous reports indicating that the new laptops will be available in 14-inch and 16-inch screen sizes and with Apple-designed next-gen Arm processors.
Apple in 2022 hopes to equip all of its new iPhones compatible with 5G. Nikkei says the company will not update the iPhone 12 Mini in 2022 after its sales have been disappointing.
Instead, in 2022, the company will update the cheaper iPhone SE with 5G and a new A15 processor.
The updated iPhone SE will use a Qualcomm chip with 5G compatibility, which will be an interesting note as Apple is building its own modems to see if it can get rid of boosting third-party sales.
The new iPhone SE will also retain its 4.7-inch LCD screens, as Nikkei said, making it the obvious choice for consumers who prefer a smaller device.
Previous reports on the third-gen SE say it will also retain Apple’s home button and Touch ID sensor.
