According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will launch a powerful Mac mini with an M1 Pro or M2 chipset this year. Kuo added that the company will launch a 27-inch external display (without mini-LED) at an affordable price. In his roadmap for 2022 and 2023, Kuo predicted Apple would launch a “more powerful Mac mini” and a “more affordable external display” (27-inch without mini-LED) this year, and “Mac Pro and iMac Pro” in 2023.
Speculation suggests that the rumored Mac mini will feature a polycarbonate top surface and a few internal upgrades. Apple will host its “Peek Performance” event tonight at 11.30 pm IST. Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is expected to release the iPhone SE 3 5G, iPad Air and a new MacBook Air.

You can also tap on the livestream link embedded below to catch all the live updates.
iPhone SE 3 Expected Specifications
The iPhone SE 3 is one of the most anticipated launches of this year, and it is expected to make a debut at Apple’s Peek Performance event tomorrow. The upcoming iPhone SE 3 or the iPhone SE 2022 is expected to come with a similar design to its 2020 model. This means that you will get curved edges along with Touch ID support and a single camera on the front and at the back. It is tipped to sport a 4.7-inch display and be powered by the company’s A15 Bionic chipset. Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo says that the phone will come in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage variants. While there is no word on the camera details yet, reports say that the phone will be priced around $399 (Rs 30,677 approx) and be available in Black, White and Red colour variants.
iPad Air Expected Specifications
Apple, back in 2020 rolled out an updated version of its iPad Air that resembled the iPad Pro models. This means users got thin bezels, flatter edges, support for Apple Pencil 2, USB-C, and a new Touch ID button. What remains missing from the device is support for 5G connectivity and a new A15 Bionic chipset that was made available on the iPad Pro models last year. Now, the word is that Apple is planning to upgrade its iPad Air models with these missing features, that is, A15 Bionic chipset and 5G connectivity. Beyond this, the update isn’t expected to bring any major changes.
MacBook Air expected Specifications.
Last year, Apple updated its MacBook Pro models with its new M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets. Reports suggest that the company is expected to update its MacBook Air models with a new chipset. Instead of M1 Max or M1 Pro, the upcoming MacBook Air is tipped to get a new M2 chipset.
