Following the Mac m2 series, Gurman said that the first Mac m3 series will include an updated 13-inch MacBook Air, a new 15-inch MacBook Air, a new iMac, and potentially a new 12-inch laptop that will include “Still on “Early Development”.

Gurman said Apple is developing several additional devices that could launch later this year and later, including a new Apple TV with an A14 chip and 4GB of RAM, the same one coming to the Apple Watch Series 8. A new HomePod is included with the S8 chip. There could be an AR/VR headset with an M2 chip and 16GB of RAM, iPad Pro models with an M2 chip, a new lower-end iPad with an A14 chip and a USB-C port, the new AirPods Pro and Plus.

Gurman said that the new HomePod will be closer to the original in terms of size and will have an updated screen above the speaker:

The new Apple TV, codenamed J255, is in development with an A14 chip and additional gigabytes of RAM. This is compared to the A12 chip announced last year as part of the 2021 Apple TV and could come in handy for implementing additional gaming capabilities in tvOS 16.

The HomePod, codenamed B620, will run the same S8 chip that comes with the watches and will be closer to the original HomePod in terms of size and audio performance, rather than the new HomePod Mini. The new HomePod will have an updated screen on top, and there has even been talk of multi-touch functionality.

As for the S8 chip for the Apple Watch Series 8 and the newer HomePod, Gurman said he was told it would have the same specs as the S7 and S6 chips in previous models. Gurman said the S8 chip could also be used in the upcoming Apple Watch SE.

Gurman also reiterated that he expects Apple to release a larger iPad with 14- to 15-inch screens within the next two years.
