In our What to Expect guide that we shared yesterday, we went over everything that we're expecting to see from Apple in 2022 based on current product rumors and historical release data.


New iPhone 14 models with a hole punch camera and no notch are a possibility, plus we could see more powerful Apple silicon iMacs and Mac minis. The second-generation AirPods Pro are coming, and there's a significantly redesigned MacBook Air on the horizon. Rumors also suggest that 2022 is the year that we could see Apple's first dedicated AR/VR product with the launch of a mixed reality headset expected to cost upwards of $3000.

We know what we think we're going to see from Apple in 2022, but we want to hear from the MacRumors community. What do you want to see Apple release this year?

Are there new features you're hoping to see in iOS 16 or macOS 13? New iPhone features? What do you hope to get out of Apple's AR/VR headset?

Let us know what you want to see in the comments, and take a look at our What to Expect guide for a look at all of the current rumors. We'll learn more about Apple's 2022 product plans during the early months of the year, and as usual, we'll have in-depth coverage of all rumors here at

Our MacRumors forums also serve as an excellent resource and community for discussing upcoming products and rumors, and with a new product category and some exciting iPhone changes planned for 2022, or forums are the place to be for all Apple-related discussions.

Thank you to our readers and our forum members for making MacRumors the number one site for Apple news, rumors, and advice on the web. MacRumors celebrated its 21st birthday this year, and that's all thanks to our dedicated readers. We look forward to another year of rumors in 2022. Happy New Year!

My top 3 things I want to see from Apple in the year 2022.

1. The software and Hardware team need to work together. Communication is the ?
I want Apple’s Software team to work together with the hardware team. Lately, they have not been working together. So many bugs in the software. Yes, the hardware is there to support it but the software is just lagging. It is behind. More bug fixes. Quality control should be the #1 priority.

2. No more notch
I don’t want to see a “NOTCH” anymore. It’s outdated. It’s 2022 the notch should not be there anymore.

3. No higher prices
I don’t want prices to hike up anymore from Apple. Prices were already up for Apple products in 2021. There’s no need to increase them any more.

Update: 11:01PM PST. This is what I'm talking about.

Also, can we please get new Wallpaper for macOS and IOS, please? We need more dynamic wallpapers, desperately! ?

We have a trio of friends building missing dynamic wallpaper for Apple for free. This should not have been the case if Apple have offered it.

Periscope cam with 10X optical. Different design more comfortable to hold in the hand. Beats high quality speakers on iPhone 14 Pro/Max and a proper set of headphones in the box. At least 30W fast charging with the charger in the box. Titanium frame in the Pro's to bring the weight down. No notch. BT 5.2. USB-C 3.2. Lower SAR values...from the flagships, the iPhone has the highest values, not acceptable.

1) NO SOFTWARE BUGS AND ERRORS - 2021 was painful. Let's not have a repeat. Apple has been forgetting to cross its 't's" and dot its "i's" of late.

2) HOMEPODS MAX - How about a return to greatness for Apple's audio category? Better advertising and lower price this time. Take a temporary loss and aim for market share, or more feature-rich to justify the price (screen? Apple TV combo?). A HomePod Soundbar would also be wonderful.

3) TELEVISION - It's a pipe dream, I know; but I always felt like Apple could become a master of this category. Prices for quality televisions are dropping; Apple could create a very exclusive set at a higher price point and set a new standard (The Bose TVs from a few years ago come to mind).

  • Monitors - Above 30" with reasonable price and quality would do unlike the current s*show.
  • 30" or above iMac
  • Mac Pro rack version. If I can dream, it would be rather small one compared to the current, with the new M* chips and good graphics.
  • Decent prices. Not necessarily cheap, but in good proportion on what is being offered.
  • Bug fixes in OSes. Problems have been creeping up.
One can dream.

I still don’t understand why apple hasn’t filled the huge gap between iOS and its desktop OS in terms of customizability and features. Apple has simply the best mobile hardware but it’s iOS where many feel let down. I’m finding that I grab my older pixel phone more and more to accomplish tasks that I can’t do on iOS.
