Apple will hold a virtual event in March or April?Rumors of the announcement of the 3rd generation iPhone SE-Engadget Japanese version

Rumor has it that Apple will host its first event this year (2022) in virtual form in March or April, where the third-generation iPhone SE is likely to be announced.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who is familiar with Apple’s inside information, said in the latest issue of his newsletter “Power On” that “Apple’s first virtual event in 2022 will be held soon,” according to sources. It’s likely to be held in either March or April. “

What will be announced there is “probably at least the new iPhone SE will appear.” He also recalls that the current (2nd generation) iPhone SE was announced “at the beginning of the spread of the new corona infection in April 2020.”

For the 3rd generation iPhone SE, Gurman is visually similar to the current model (based on the iPhone 8), but internally upgraded with a new chip and (as a cheaper model) the first 5G connection. Expected. These views are in line with renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and several other sources.

Earlier, Gurman also said that by mid-2022, Apple would see a series of “many new professional Macs,” including the Apple Silicon-powered Mac Pro. Gourman doesn’t say whether these professional Macs will be announced at this March-April event.

Finally, Gourman speculates that Apple’s second event this year will be WWDC (World Developers Conference) in June. The next major version of the major OS is announced at WWDC every year, and it is expected that iOS / iPad OS 16, macOS 13, watchOS 9, etc. will be announced this year, but at the time of writing the article, what new features will be installed in these It is unknown if it will be done.

There was also hope that this year’s WWDC event would be face-to-face (with people at the venue), but Gurman said, “It’s almost impossible for the 2022 World Developers Conference to be virtual for the third consecutive year. It’s certain. “

Gourman once said that the rumored genuine AR / VR headset is a big new product, “I don’t want to make such an important announcement at an online event,” but if it is scheduled to be released at the end of the year. If so, it shouldn’t be strange to announce it in June (to give time to app developers and promote it). I would like to wait for the follow-up report there.
