Mark Gurman provided a report on Apple’s forthcoming product roadmap today in his Bloomberg Power On newsletter. Customers can anticipate the release of the Apple Watch Series 9 and a second-generation Apple Watch Ultra this fall alongside the iPhone 15 lineup.
It is not expected that the M3 MacBook and MacBook Pro will receive additional updates to the Mac lineup until later this year or early 2024.
Notably, Gurman claims that new iMac models with screens larger than 30 inches—possibly the long-awaited Apple Silicon successor, the iMac Pro—are in the works, and that they will skip the M2 generation entirely.
To give you some context, the old Intel iMac Pro with a 27-inch screen had Xeon CPU inside, which would naturally match up with the Apple Silicon Ultra chip platform in the Mac Studio and Mac Pro.
However, Gurman did not specify the precise specifications of the >30-inch iMac, other than to state that it is still in the early stages of development. This indicates that we do not yet know whether it contains an M3 chip, an M3 Pro or M3 Ultra chip, or something entirely different.
Additionally, Gurman reiterated that iPad Pro models with OLED screens and an updated iPad Air are on the way for 2024.
A new Apple TV set-top box, the third-generation AirPods Pro, and other smart home products are also said to be “in early development.”
