But what didn’t Apple announce? Here’s a list of products we’ve been waiting for, including (certainly) some that are more of a series of rumors than the imminent or expected releases. Still, while we didn’t think most of them would debut at the recent Apple event, we did get to see some debut later this year. Several other products, including the new AirPods Pro, an updated iPad Pro, refreshed Mac Pros and MacBook Air with Apple Silicon and more, could arrive in 2022, according to Gurman..

Often referred to as AirPods 3, their design, based on possible leaked photos, but it won’t feature noise-isolating ear cushions (and may not offer active noise cancellation).
16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 chip
Currently, the 14-inch Pro model, you will have to keep waiting. Apple may be waiting for an even better chip (M2? M1X?) To power them. You can check all the .It is only available on a 13-inch model and it doesn’t perform much better than the (which, admittedly, is quite the speed demon).

Larger iMac with Apple silicone chips
At Apple’s April event, the company gave us newwith flatter designs and 24-inch screens (instead of 21.5 inches). But the larger 27-inch iMacs remain unchanged for now, despite rumors that they will become gigantic 30-inch displays. Perhaps they are also waiting for the presumed successor of M1.

Mid-range Apple display
Apple will sell you its 32-inch 6Kfor a ton of money (it starts at just under $ 5,000, and that’s without its nearly $ 1,000 support). But owners of Mac Minis (and, now, the Thunderbolt-equipped iPad Pro) are still waiting for something that is a little More affordable.
Apple Echo Show competitor
After Apple discontinued its HomePod, the company was rumored to have been inthat would merge an entry-level iPad with a speaker. Details remain vague and it is unclear when such a product will launch.

Apple Soundbar with Integrated Apple TV
Another product that is rumored to make a lot of sense that Apple believes is ait has a built-in Apple TV “box”. Roku already offers several with its built-in smart TV apps, and Apple could easily make the cash register ring on larger models with higher sound capacity.
