What's new from Apple in 2022, and the best iPhone apps, on the AppleInsider podcast

On the AppleInsider podcast this week, your hosts highlight our favorite iPhone apps, and discuss Apple's 2022 device roadmap, while Apple's design team reveals images from inside Apple Park.

In a recent report, Apple's entire early 2022 product lineup may have been laid bare. Alongside updated MacBook Air models, revised iPad Air and iPad Pro, and the long-awaiting Apple Silicon Mac Pro, Gurman believes Apple's AR and VR headset should launch next year.

We should also see the next generation of the M1 chip, presumably "M2," next year in the MacBook Air and possibly iPad Pro too. Other rumors we examine in this episode include multiple Apple Watch models with a new SE and rugged version, which was corroborated by analyst Ming Chi-Kuo.

Away from possible future releases, Apple has quietly presented us now with a new MacBook upgrade program specifically for business customers. Business users can sign up for as low as $30 per month for a MacBook Air, and up to $75 for a 16-inch MacBook Pro. This lease-type program will allow businesses to gain multiple machines at a lower initial cost, and also to upgrade to new machines in the future.

In a new interview with Wallpaper* magazine, Apple's design team showed off images from inside Apple Park for the first time.

Lastly, we round out the show highlighting some of the best iPhone apps for productivity, notes, calendar, games, and more.
