Apple Event “Peek Performance” Planned for March 8
Apple has announced an event for March 8, 2022, at 10 AM PST. The event will be virtual, taking place at the Steve Jobs theater from the Apple Park Cupertino campus.
Rumors surrounding the lead-up to the event suggest a round of updated hardware is expected to be unveiled, including updates to the iPad Air, 13″ MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and perhaps iPhone SE. Of course these are just rumors so what actually is announced remains to be seen.
It is reasonable to expect that iOS 15.4, iPadOS 15.4, and macOS Monterey 12.3 will be released to the public on or near the event date. Those new operating systems include support for Universal Control on Mac and iPad, a variety of new Emoji icons, support for iPhone using Face ID with a mask, an EU Covid digital vaccine pass, and more.

I have my doubts on some of these rumors. A Mac Mini Pro for example, Apple has never considered the Mac Mini anymore then a entry level Mac product. The iPad line up is stagnant and sales are OK but clearly many are buying a Macbook Air or Pro over a iPad Pro. The SE has been in need of an update so its plausible. People sure get excited over trying to predict these events. Many have ended up just not living up to the hype.
