Six Major Products to Expect From Apple in 2023

As we approach the end of a busy product release season for Apple with only new iPads and Macs left to be announced over the next month or so, we're also setting our sights on 2023. Apple is rumored to have several major products in the pipeline for next year, including new Macs, a new HomePod, a VR/AR headset, and so much more.

Other than new iPhones and Apple Watches, which are expected every year on a regular cadence, there are other products to look forward to from Apple. Below, we've rounded up six major products other than the iPhone 15 you can expect to launch next year, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman in his latest Power On newsletter.

15-Inch MacBook Air

Flat MacBook Air 15 Feature
Apple is expected to release a 15-inch MacBook Air in 2023, as previously rumored and reaffirmed today by Gurman. The ‌MacBook Air‌ is rumored to be similar in display size to the 16-inch MacBook Pro but with a thinner and lighter design. The current ‌MacBook Air‌ measures 13 inches, and the 15-inch ‌‌MacBook Air‌‌ would likely use the same design as the current model, which was introduced in June.

iMac With M3 Chip

Apple is working on a new iMac that it plans to launch next year, according to Gurman. The new ‌iMac‌ will feature the M3 Apple silicon chip, but other details, including its design and size, have yet to be seen. Apple is also working on an "‌iMac‌ Pro," but whether that's the rumored M3 ‌iMac‌ or a separate standalone product is unclear.

Apple TV, HomePod, and FaceTime Camera All-in-One

HomePod FaceTime 3D Blue
Apple is working on a new product for the home that combines a ‌HomePod‌ with an Apple TV and a FaceTime camera. The product was originally reported in April 2021, and Gurman today said it could launch towards the end of 2023. "The device's other capabilities would include standard ‌Apple TV‌ box functions like watching video and gaming plus smart speaker uses such as playing music and using Apple's Siri digital assistant," Gurman said in a previous report.

Additional details about the product, including its form factor and price, are not yet known, but with a launch possibly slated for sometime next year, more details may emerge in the coming months.

'Reality Pro' Headset

Perhaps one of the first Apple product introductions in 2023 will be the company's long-rumored AR/VR headset. According to several reports, Apple is planning to release its headset, which it may call "Reality Pro," next year. Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo has reported that Apple is planning an event as soon as January to announce the new headset.

New HomePod

After discontinuing the product in March 2021, Apple is rumored to be working on a new full-sized ‌HomePod‌ to launch next year, according to Gurman and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to Gurman, the new ‌HomePod‌ will be sized similarly to the original ‌HomePod‌ with improved audio quality and powered by the S8 chip from the Apple Watch Series 8. The new ‌HomePod‌ could launch as early as the first quarter of 2023, according to Kuo.

Apple Silicon Mac Pro

One of the most anticipated product announcements of 2023 is a new Mac Pro, as the current version still features Intel processors. Rumors suggest the upcoming ‌Mac Pro‌ will feature the M2 Ultra chip with a 20-core CPU, up to a 64-core GPU, and 64GB or 128GB of unified memory. The ‌Mac Pro‌ is also expected to be offered with an "‌M2‌ Extreme" chip, which will have a 40-core CPU, up to a 128-core GPU, and at least 128GB or 256GB of unified memory.

They could lump all these products into " I'll believe it when I see it" category.

I’ll only consider buying the alleged 2023 HomePod if it’s packed with new next-level features. The OG HomePods continu to serve me very well. Love them still.

I'm holding my breath more for a resurrection of the bite-sized 12" MacBook. I don't care if Apple put M1 chip in there, call it MacBook or MacBook SE and call it a day. It'll be the next laptop for me as my current M1 MBA already been fulfilling my need for photo and video editing on the go without worrying too much about battery and performance.

Where is the updated Intel based Mac Pro Tim Cook said a couple years ago they'd deliver?

Skipping M2, I guess. It's pretty silly that even after moving off Intel, Apple still won't do regular revisions of the internals.
