iPhone SE, 'M2' MacBook Pro, and 'Apple Watch Series 8' on the AppleInsider podcast

On this week's episode of the AppleInsider podcast, new models of iPhone SE and iPad Air are preparing to launch, reports claim "Apple Watch Series 8" may come in three sizes, and we discuss the Apple Silicon roadmap for 2022.

Supply chain analyst Ross Young claims that production of Apple's new iPhone SE model begins this month with minor feature updates. We are expecting the same hardware design as the previous iPhone SE, plus the addition of 5G cellular connectivity and possibly a larger display.

Recent EEC filings reveal new iPad Air models will be launching soon. New features may include 5G cellular connectivity, 12MP FaceTime HD camera with Center Stage support, and the A15 Bionic processor.

Reputable leaker DylanDKT said on Twitter that the base model 13-inch MacBook Pro will be replaced with a redesigned 14-inch model and include Apple's new "M2" chip. We also expect the "M2" chip to be used in the upcoming MacBook Air refresh and we discuss when it will come to iPad Pro.

"Apple Watch Series 8" is expected to adopt the flat-edged redesign rumored earlier in 2021. In addition to multiple display sizes, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reports the next model might integrate a temperature sensor.

Our hosts discuss the round of funding received by 1Password, highlight the best video converters for Mac, and round out the show answering listener questions.
