Listed below are the 2023 predictions from the Apple Global These days gang

The Apple Global These days gang aways likes to supply our predictions on all issues Apple for the yr forward. And here’s what our crystal balls display for 2023.

Editor/Writer Dennis Dealers


Clearly, we’ll see new Macs. I be expecting the primary ones shall be new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Professionals within the March time-frame if now not faster. They’ll game M2 Professionals and M2 Max chips. 

Round the similar time-frame, we will have to see an up to date Mac mini with such processor choices. I believe fall will see up to date 24-inch iMacs and an up to date Mac Studio. The previous will have to pack M3 processors (even though I don’t have any clue why the all-in-one wasn’t up to date with M2 chips for the time being).

I believe the Mac Studio shall be introduced with M3 Max and M3 Extremely choices. I’m now not positive when, however I believe we’ll see a brand new 2023 Mac Professional with the most recent and largest Apple Silicon within. It is going to be very dear and most likely the final rev of the Mac Professional (which I’ll duvet in any other column).

I don’t assume we’ll see a 12-inch Mac computer. And I’m going out on a limb right here and predicting no 27-inch iMac (once more, a subject I’ll duvet in an upcoming column.)

I additionally assume that Apple will free up a brand new 27-inch (or possibly 30 inch) show subsequent yr. In contrast to america$1,599 Studio Show, this one will enhance ProMotion generation for refresh charges as much as 120MHz along with a mini-LED panel. Alternatively, I don’t foresee any updates to the $4,999, 6K Professional Show XDR. 


We’ll see up to date iPads subsequent yr with up to date specifications and function tweaks. Alternatively, we WON’T see a 14-inch, 15-inch, or 16-inch iPad Professional. 

We additionally aren’t going to get an iPad operating macOS (even supposing I’d like this sort of software). I additionally assume Apple will ditch the apparent ‘ol iPad and be offering the desk in Professional and mini variations handiest.


The iPhone 15 will, as at all times, recover processors. Since people appear to be who prefer the dearer iPhones to the low finish fashions, I believe Apple received’t be offering extra iPhone minis or iPhone SEs. As a substitute, the tech will advertise earlier gen smartphones for the ones on the cheap. In regards to the iPhone 15 line-up, I believe those rumors will come true:

° The iPhone 15 shall be fabricated from titanium and have a brand new border design. The again edge nook shall be rounded and now not sq..

° The iPhone 15 Professionals will game an larger 8GB of RAM, a USB-C port, and more than one digital camera enhancements.

° The Dynamic Island characteristic will increase to all iPhone 15 fashions.

° The long-rumored “periscope lens” shall be unique to the iPhone 15 Professional Max.


I believe, as Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has predicted, that Apple will send a HomePod that may double as a speaker document for an iPad. The speculation is to supply one thing that customers can position on a kitchen counter, in the lounge or on their nightstand. However Apple additionally has labored on an iPad docking accent that it might promote one at a time and would accomplish a lot of the similar factor.

I additionally assume that Apple is operating on a HomePod product that mixes a speaker, Apple TV purposes, and a FaceTime digital camera. Alternatively, don’t search for it till 2024.

Apple TV

I believe Apple will free up a brand new Apple TV set-top field that has an larger focal point on gaming. It is going to pack an A14 chip and an extra gigabyte of RAM. That compares with the A12 chip introduced as a part of the 2021 Apple TV final yr and may well be helpful for added gaming functions rolling out in tvOS 16. 

There are rumor that Apple is making plans its personal gaming console. That ain’t gonna occur, however I do be expecting the corporate to free up its personal sport controller that works with a brand new Apple TV, in addition to the Mac, iPhone, and iPad.

Apple Watch

I don’t see any primary adjustments to the Apple Watch as we noticed in 2022 with the debut of the Apple Watch Extremely. There’ll be up to date specifications in fact, even higher battery lifestyles, and, if we’re fortunate, mini LED show tech.

Nonetheless, I believe there’s an excellent chance we’ll see fashions with 5G connectivity choices. Cell editions of earlier watches within the sequence, even the Apple Watch Extremely, have had LTE connection however now not but 5G. 

Apple Glasses/Truth Professional

I believe Apple’s rumored prolonged fact headset will after all debut subsequent yr — even though it is going to be within the fall. It is going to be dear (round $2,000) and be a full-fledged head-mounted show (HMD). In 2024 Apple will roll out a follow-up fashion with a lighter design that seem like “customary” glasses.

Apple Automotive

We would possibly get some tidbits of stories about an Apple-made car, however don’t be expecting to look one roll out in 2023. Or 2024. Possibly now not even 2025.

Running gadget updates

Clearly, we’ll see updates of macOS, iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and watchOS on the summer season’s International Developer Convention. 

I believe macOS 14 will see the go back of Dashboard (which Apple discontinued with the discharge of macOS Catalina). I additionally assume we’ll see notification mirroring throughout all Apple gadgets and the facility to make use of In finding My to find a out of place iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch. Talking of the previous, I believe we’ll after all see the Apple Watch app come to the Mac.

iPadOS 17 will have to after all upload true multi-user enhance and, as with the Mac, Apple Watch integration. There can also be improvements to multi-tasking, even supposing people like me nonetheless received’t see the iPad as a computer alternative.

iOS 17 will see the go back of panorama mode. I believe we’ll additionally see extra interactive House Display widgets and extra House Display customization choices. Additionally, I believe there’s an outdoor likelihood we’ll see Apple Pencil enhance come to the iPhone. 

watchOS 10 will permit builders (perhaps even customers) to construct their very own watch faces. You’ll be capable of get right of entry to your stored passwords proper out of your wrist with the Keychain app. And the Translate app would possibly after all come in your wrist.

tvOS 17 will, as discussed, be offering extra gaming options. Past this,  my crystal ball is murky.

Apple’s long-awaited transfer into augmented fact (AR) begins in 2023, however now not with augmented fact… extra like digital fact with a VR headset to problem Meta’s Quest headsets. 

In contrast to maximum Apple merchandise, there shall be a worth level underneath that of the least dear Quest 2 headset, which is recently $399.99 — I’d assume Apple wish to are available in at about $249.99. Apple will wait to compete with the Quest Professional (skilled, $1,499.99) headset — they need to make a large bounce into VR first. They’ll additionally announce quite a lot of big-name apps being to be had at release. The AR “glasses” received’t be round for a couple of extra years.

Apple will undergo a large monetary loss in 2023, principally brought about through exertions issues in China the place maximum in their manufacturing remains to be based totally. Shortages of product will motive the loss, and because of this the Apple board of administrators will take away Tim Prepare dinner from his place as CEO, changing him with Jeff Williams (present COO) or Sabin Khan (present VP of Operations). 

As the brand new Topic House Automation Usual after all takes to the air in 2023, adoption of Apple’s House app soars since it is going to now paintings with many extra third-party gadgets.

All new merchandise shipped through Apple in 2023 will use USB 3 or wi-fi for charging as the corporate aligns with the EU’s new requirement for a unmarried stressed charging same old. 

The iPhone Digicam app for the iPhone 14 Professional Max and iPhone 15 Professional Max will come with a devoted astrophotography mode for taking long-exposure pictures of the night time sky. To counteract the Earth’s rotation, the app takes a chain of exposures lengthy sufficient to seize stars and planets but now not display movement, then stacks them for each focal point and brightness earlier than environment a deep black background.

Apple will announce that they’ll require automobile producers to make use of handiest wi-fi CarPlay in new automobiles beginning in 2024.

Apple will reintroduce a bigger iMac, this time in each 27–inch and 30-inch sizes.

Virtually Assured

New iPhone – Its simple to expect a brand new iPhone. It occurs annually, generally in September, simply in time for the back-to-school crowd. It is going to most likely be referred to as the iPhone 15, with a Professional and ProMax most likely the similar sizes as this yr. There shall be an upgraded CPU and GPU. I think the massive exchange this yr shall be to a USB-C port as a substitute of Lightning. That is being driven up in time because of Ecu rules. I think that Apple would possibly drop the plus line and any smaller iPhones. It kind of feels from all signs that the smaller telephones aren’t promoting like Apple had was hoping.

This iPhone 15 mock-up is courtesy of Yanko Design.

MacBook Updates -There were no updates to the 14” and 16” MacBook Professionals since Fall of 2021. I think there’ll no doubt be updates to the MacBook Professional lineups.

Apple Watch – There shall be an up to date Apple Watch most likely within the Fall. Most likely there shall be some adjustments to the Extremely. Differently, any adjustments shall be small akin to a slight bump in efficiency and battery lifestyles.

iOS 17 and a brand new Mac OS – Apple will perhaps introduce iOS 17 in June at WWDC and free up it with the brand new iPhone in September. The brand new Mac OS with some California call shall be introduced as neatly at WWDC and launched in October.

Most definitely

There it is going to be some new Macs. Those aren’t as assured as in years previous because of provide chain constraints. I in my view use a Mac Studio M1 Max and I will be able to say it’s the most productive laptop I’ve ever used. I hope for an replace to it with the M2 and even M3 chip. I’ll expect that the M2 shall be skipped for the Mac Studio line and cross instantly to the M3.

I’ve bother pushing the M1 Mac Studio to it’s prohibit so why need any improve? I do sport so much at the Mac Studio (Global of Warcraft) and would revel in seeing some extra graphical energy. I will be able to run maximum all on most settings, however would like to look what a forged improve to the Mac Studio can do.

I believe there shall be a brand new Mac mini because the final one was once in 2020. I think an up to date iMac Professional shall be presented. The final iMac Professional was once 2017.

Even Apple discussed there was once another laptop to transport to Apple Silicon and that’s the Mac Professional. That they had deliberate to take action through the tip of 2022, so I believe that may come this yr.

Most definitely Now not

I don’t assume the persist with merchandise will come to mild this yr.

Apple Glasses, Apple VR, and an Apple Automotive. Those all would possibly occur somewhat quickly, however with the provision problems and production problems Apple has confronted, those will take a again seat.

What I would like to look however would possibly now not ever occur

I wish to see Apple making extra networking merchandise akin to routers and switches. I really like the reliability and construct of Apple merchandise, and would revel in extra of the community being from Apple.

Even though now not a bodily product, I would love for Apple to supply Time Gadget backups on Apple servers. With the supply of 1Gbit networks it will be simple to stay backup on Apple’s personal servers.

Irrespective of what Apple does or does now not herald 2023, it is going to be thrilling. It at all times is.
