Apple March event live blog: iPhone SE 2022, iPad Air 5, M2 Mac and more
Apple’s iPad Air (2020) is considered the best tablet for most people, and for very good reason. That’s why we’re excited to see what the fifth-generation iPad Air has in store, even though it’s not expected to be a major update.
Taking inspiration from the revamped Apple iPad mini 6, the iPad Air 5 is expected to feature a speedy A15 Bionic, 5G support and a 12MP ultra-wide front camera with Center function iPad Pro stage. However, expect it to look a lot like the hugely popular iPad Air (2020).
Apparently the iPad Air 5 now features an M1 chip with 5G, similar to the significant upgrade the 2021 iPad Pro received. This comes from sources speaking to 9to5Mac, stating that Apple has now chosen to bring its popular and powerful chip to one of the most popular tablets on the market. That may bump the price up over the previous generation (priced at $599), but it may lose out on the iPad Pro’s ProMotion display with XDR technology.
If Apple announces the iPad Air 5, we’ll be happy to see if that changes the game. .
Apple’s first product launch event of the year should bring the launch of its new third-generation iPhone SE model, and there are some notable updates to look forward to.
Apple’s budget smartphone is finally looking to make the leap to 5G connectivity, and it could get a significant boost in processing power with an A14 or A15 Bionic. The new model is also expected to feature the same 4.7-inch screen found in the current model and the iPhone 8. We’re hoping the new SE model will be priced the same as its predecessor, as it might leave room for a iPhone SE at $199 (2020).
There have been plenty of hot shots on how the iPhone SE 3 will turn out, including a model with a design similar to the iPhone X. Recently, MacRumors Point a rumor on a korean blog Naver, indicating that the next-gen iPhone SE model will support MagSafe, a ceramic shield, as well as better battery life. We’d be happy to welcome all of these features, but we won’t know until they’re introduced.

And we start! The Cupertino tech giant’s virtual event is rumored to finally give us information on its next-generation iPhone SE (2022) and fifth-generation iPad Air. However, we may also see a new model of Mac. The invite doesn’t offer too many clues as to what will be revealed with “Peek performance,” but it might suggest bringing an M1 Pro or M1 Max chip to another Mac. Better yet, it could mean the introduction of Apple’s M2 chips.
Apple CEO Tim Cook is sure to give us all the details.
