In recent years, Apple has completely revamped all of its products, such as changing the Mac’s processors from Intel to their own, launching the durable Apple Watch Ultra, including a new iPhone Plus model, and unveiling a new product type (the upcoming Vision Pro).
In this piece, we examine what Apple may release in the upcoming years and beyond. We thoroughly researched all speculations and patterns to present our forecasts. Continue reading to discover what could potentially be on the horizon.
So far, what has been released by Apple in 2023.
In January 2023, Apple had a successful start with the release of new Macs and a HomePod. This was followed by the launch of three additional Macs and a new device, the Vision Pro, at WWDC in June. At this event, the company also shared its upcoming plans for macOS 14 Sonoma, iOS 17, and watchOS 10. Later in September, Apple held an event where they unveiled the iPhone 15 series, Apple Watch Series 8, and Apple Watch Ultra 2. Customers were able to download macOS Sonoma and iOS 17 later that same month.

At the WWDC event in June 2023, Apple announced an update for the Mac Pro which completes the transition of all Macs from Intel processors to their own silicon. However, there are still some Mac models that require a second-generation Apple silicon update. Here is a list of what we can still anticipate to be released:
iMac with M3
We are anticipating the release of a new iMac in the near future. The current iMac is equipped with an M1 chip, while the other models have already upgraded to Apple’s second generation Mac chips. It is long overdue for an update. However, there are speculations that Apple may skip the M2 and jump to the M3 for the iMac.
We are also looking forward to the release of a Pro edition of the iMac, possibly a 27-inch iMac Pro. There is speculation about the potential launch of an M3 Pro iMac, but it may take some time for that to happen.
When will it occur? Fall of 2023 or spring of 2024.
MacBook Air with M3
There is speculation that Apple plans to release an M3 update for the 13-inch MacBook Air before doing so for the 15-inch model, which seems unlikely. We anticipate that both the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air will receive a new chip, but we do not expect it to happen until spring 2024.

When? Spring 2024
13-inch MacBook Pro with M3
It would be unusual if Apple did not release an update for the 13-inch MacBook Pro alongside the Air.
When? Spring 2024
In 2022, only one iPad was not updated, making it the most probable candidate for an update in 2023. However, there is speculation about the release of a larger iPad Pro.
A potential release of a seventh generation iPad mini is expected in 2023.
Possible rewording: “Rumors of a 7th generation iPad mini have been circulating.”
In which year will it occur? Fall 2023 or spring 2024.
Bigger iPad Pro
It is possible that Apple will release a 14-inch iPad Pro by the end of 2023, but it is more likely that we will have to wait until 2024 for its release.
When? Spring 2024
It is improbable that there will be another release of iPhones until September 2024. However, there is a possibility that a new iPhone SE may be introduced before then.

When? September 2024
Although it may seem unlikely, there were speculations in the past that Apple might release a larger version of the iPhone SE, allowing those who prefer a bigger phone with a Home button to still have that option. While it sounds appealing, we are doubtful that this is currently on Apple’s agenda. Learn more about the rumored iPhone SE Plus.
Unfortunately, it is uncertain if the iPhone SE will have a future. Reports suggest that it is unlikely to receive an update until 2025. If the update does come with a larger screen and no home button, it may disappoint those who are attracted to this particular iPhone.
Check out the latest rumors about the iPhone SE.
When? Spring 2025
The AirPods Max are in dire need of an update. Currently, they are unable to support lossless audio. Will there be an update for them in 2023? Unfortunately, there is a lack of speculation about potential updates at this time.
I have heard speculation about the release of AirPods Lite, which are supposedly a version of AirPods priced at $99. Can we expect to see these in the market before the end of 2023? However, there is no definite information and it is possible that we may have to wait until 2024.
Peruse: Recent speculations about updated AirPods.
In which season? Autumn of 2023 or spring of 2024.
New Apple Watch
It is anticipated that in September 2024, Apple will release an updated version of the Apple Watch, known as the Apple Watch Series 10, as well as a new model called the third-generation Apple Watch Ultra. These devices will include the latest S10 chip. There is also a possibility of a third-generation Apple Watch SE being released.
When? Fall 2024
New product categories
Apple may fall behind as technology advances if it continues to only focus on its current product line without any innovation. To stay competitive, the company is actively exploring new areas of development. While we do not anticipate these new ventures to launch in 2023, there are rumors that some may be introduced earlier than expected.
Vision Pro headset
We know it’s a real thing because Apple showed off the Vision Pro mixed reality headset at WWDC in June 2023, but we are less sure when it will launch. Apple said “Early 2024”, but Apple doesn’t always meet its self-imposed deadlines.

When? Spring 2024
HomePod with screen
We are optimistic that the rumors about Apple developing a HomePod with a screen are true. We have consistently believed that a screen would greatly enhance the functionality of the HomePod. However, it’s possible that we are the only ones who dislike having to communicate with our speaker.
A screen on the HomePod would expand its capabilities beyond just audio, allowing you to also watch podcasts, news reports, and YouTube videos. However, its most valuable function would be using FaceTime for communication.
Apple has only reintroduced the full-sized HomePod, which was previously discontinued.
There are speculations about a potential screen-equipped HomePod.
When? Spring 2024
There has been speculation that Apple may be considering launching a gaming console, or at least upgrading their Apple TV with better capabilities for gaming.
Check out the rumors surrounding the Apple gaming console.
An update on speculations surrounding Apple would not be finished without mentioning the recent iCar speculations. This rumor has been circulating for several years now, similar to the long-standing rumor of an Apple television.
There is uncertainty surrounding the nature of the ‘Apple Car’ – whether it is a physical car or just car software. However, it is certain that Apple has had a dedicated team working on the project for several years.
