New year, new products! And even Apple is preparing to launch new products in 2022 while planning to discontinue a few products this year. This is not a new concept as every year, as Apple tends to discontinue a few products to focus on more new products. Last year in 2021, several Apple products such as iPhone 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, HomePod, iMac Pro, and iPhone XR, among many, were discontinued.

This year, several predictions hint that Apple may axe its iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, which will be superseded by the new iPhone in September 2022. Apple 13, which was recently made to the market last September 2021, is still at the top of the list for all the Apple-philes. Besides the iPhone 13 series, it is also predicted that iPhone SE 2020 will be discontinued too.

Though you need to note here that discontinuation means Apple will no longer manufacture these products, but users will still be able to purchase them until they are in stock via several other online retailers such as Amazon, Flipkart, Reliance, and others. In addition to these iPhone models, several other Apple products are also on the list to be discontinued this year. The list includes - iPad Air 4th-gen, Apple Watch Series 7, Mac Pro, AirPods Pro, and iPod Touch 7th gen. However, these are just predictions and the official information from Apple is yet to be awaited.

Then what should Apple fans expect from this year?

As mentioned above, despite the discontinuation of these mentioned products, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, you will still be able to buy these on other e-commerce websites, same as you found huge sales on iPhone 12 these days. Additionally, Apple lovers can expect the launch of the flagship iPhone lineup of Apple, iPhone 14 in the second half of the year. Till now, several leaks and rumors have surfaced online about the expected launch, specs, and features of the iPhone 14 on the internet. According to leaks, you may witness iPhone 14 without a notch display and with a 48MP sensor camera. Also, there were reports that the next-generation iPhone will be without a SIM slot, and will only be equipped with an eSIM option.
