If you are planning to upgrade your iPhone or MacBook, read this article to the end. Apple announced last week that it will hold a special press event on March 8. While the company hasn’t revealed what’s new is coming, all indications are that a new iPhone will be launched, possibly an upgraded iPhone SE. The company is also reportedly working on the next generation iPad Air, the high-end Mac mini, the all-new 13-inch MacBook Pro, a new external display and more. If Apple announces these products tomorrow, they will start hitting retail shelves in the coming days. That’s why you should wait and avoid spending your money on an old Apple product.
So, whether you’re planning to buy a new iPhone SE or looking for a replacement for your old iPad, hold off until Apple updates its lineup.
iPhone SE 2020
Yes it is It looks like the third generation iPhone SE might get some serious attention, though, even if the “affordable budget iPhone” rumors sound somewhat similar. It is said that the next generation iPhone SE will look like the last generation model but with the ability to support 5G and the ultra-fast A15 Bionic chipset. Tech insiders and analysts seem to agree that the new iPhone SE will see a frequent upgrade. Even so, the next iPhone SE could add a lot of value for those who want an iPhone at a slightly lower price. Keep in mind that the iPhone SE has always been positioned as a “budget” option and so far Apple has refrained from calling it a “low-cost” iPhone. With the new iPhone SE dropping soon, so unless you need to replace one urgently, it’s best to put it off for now.
Some predictions about the upcoming new iPhone SE:
1. Mass production on March 22nd.
2. Estimated shipments volume is 25-30 million units in 2022.
3. Storage: 64/128/256 GB.
4. Support A15 and 5G (mmW & Sub-6 GHz).
5. Cover: white, black, and red.
6. The form factor design is similar to the current SE.

iPad Air 4
Talk of the iPad Air upgrade announced during Tuesday’s event is a done deal. Don’t expect a major redesign this year since the iPad Air 4 got an iPad Pro-like design in late 2020. In fact, this year’s iPad Air could get minor upgrades to keep the popular iPad relevant in the premium tablet segment. Improvements to the iPad Air 5 could include a faster A15 Bionic chipset, 5G support, a 12MP wide-angle lens, and a central camera feature for video calls. It is not clear whether the upcoming iPad Air will get an OLED screen as rumored for several months. These hardware changes will make the iPad Air even better. Keep this in mind before you rush out and buy your current iPad Air 4.
Mac mini (Intel model)
With the move to Apple silicon, the working days of the Intel-powered Mac mini have been numbered. The Intel-powered Mac mini is rumored to be in line with the change, with Apple expected to show off a high-end model with custom M1 Pro/Mac silicon at a “Peek Performance” event. Don’t confuse the upcoming Mac mini with the current M1 Mac mini, Apple’s most affordable desktop PC in its Mac lineup. M1 Mac mini was launched in 2020.
The new Mac mini has a new design and more ports, along with a faster processor that will naturally meet the needs of power users. And therefore It might be worth continuing to buy one until we get a clearer idea of how Apple wants to position the soon-to-be-announced Mac mini. We’ll have to wait and see if it arrives on March 8th.
MacBook Pro M1 13 inch
Don’t even think about buying a 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M1 processor right now. Powerful was the 13-inch MacBook Pro, it lost its appeal when Apple decided to launch the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro last fall. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the 13-inch MacBook Pro may not get upgraded at all, and there’s a reason Apple wants to discontinue the device with an “old design factor.” It’s still a great device, but it’s less powerful compared to the 14-inch MacBook Pro. In fact, there is a growing perception among the creative community that the 13-inch MacBook Pro is Apple’s baffling offering.
