Apple invited the world to a virtual event on March 8th, 2022 at 10 AM PST (11:30 PM IST in India) at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California. Apple is likely to introduce a new low-cost iPhone SE 3rd Generation with 5G connectivity.
Where to watch Apple’s “Peek performance” virtual event
It will be Apple’s first since the release of new MacBook Pro computers in October 2021. Last year, in April, the company conducted a spring event to unveil new high-end iPads and the iMac computer.
According to media and analyst rumors, Apple may unveil a new low-cost iPhone SE 3rd Generation with 5G connectivity and a fingerprint sensor, as well as a midrange iPad.
The iPhone SE 2nd Generation, which was debuted in the spring of 2020 and retails for $399, is the company’s current low-cost iPhone. It is the most recent iPhone model that includes Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
Apple may possibly release a new Mac mini with faster M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. Last year, Apple announced high-performance silicon CPUs with the MacBook Pro, which came in 14-inch and 16-inch versions. The new M2 chip, which will debut on the 13-inch MacBook Pro, is also expected.
The M2 chip is claimed to have improved performance while also being more efficient. According to sources, the M2 processor will have 9-core and 10-core GPU options, which will be an improvement above the M1’s 7-core and 8-core GPU.
Apple may potentially release iOS 15.4, the most recent version of iPhone software, with various new capabilities, such as the ability to utilize face recognition to unlock the device while wearing a mask and the ability to process contactless credit card payments without the use of additional hardware.
Apple’s spring device debuts are less important to the company than its usual fall events, which reveal more expensive and profitable high-end iPhone models in advance of the holiday shopping season.
Apple also has an annual developer conference called WWDC in June, during which it occasionally debuts new hardware.
