Apple has sent out invitations for its first event of 2022, which will take place on March 8 at 7 p.m. More information is available here!
More about lightning performance
The invitation, which usually gives subtle hints of what to expect, bears the phrase “performance peek”. That’s right – “peek” not “peak”. The company is believed to be launching the next generation iPhone SE and iPad Air along with the new Macs. A device with an M2 chip could also come as part of the move to Apple Silicon, according to a Bloomberg report. Moving away from Intel processors is set to be complete by the end of 2022, and that only makes sense. The iPhone SE and iPad Air have both been around for a while, so there’s a good chance something is up on that front.
Apple released the MacBook Pros update in October 2021, powered by the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets. But it looks like the company is already ready to bring the M2 to us, with orders for several Macs appearing in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database. The new M2 chip may make major leaps in graphics and neural network performance, but it is not expected to consume more power as a result. After all, performance per watt is an issue for Apple right now, and they’re really taking advantage of it on mobile devices like the MacBook Air. We’ll let you know once the event is over!
