Apple Devices We’re NOT Expecting to Launch in 2023


While 2023 is shaping up to be a big year for new Apple devices, there are at least six new products we are actively not expecting the company to launch this year.

Certain devices across many of Apple’s key product lines, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and AirPods, are expected to remain untouched in 2023, with little to no risk of being replaced by a successor. While it is likely that a large number of Apple devices now on sale will remain so through the entirety of the year, only some can be firmly counted out for this year at the current time.

Third-Generation AirPods Pro

A third-generation version of the AirPods Pro is highly unlikely to launch in this year owing to the relatively recent launch of the second-generation model.

The second-generation ‌AirPods Pro‌ launched in September last year, offering a major update with active noise cancellation enhancements, Adaptive Transparency mode, H2 chips, battery life improvements, touch volume controls, improved battery life, IPX4 sweat and water resistance, Apple Watch charger compatibility, the U1 chip for precision finding, and more. The scale of this update suggests that it could be some time before a sufficient number of further upgrades are ready for a third-generation model.

Likewise, Apple appears to focus on refreshing just one AirPods model each year, and the AirPods Max are next up for a refresh, followed by the standard AirPods. This means that third-generation ‌AirPods Pro‌ may not arrive until 2025.

Fourth-Generation iPhone SE

There have been a multitude of rumors about the fourth-generation iPhone SE, even predating the launch of the current, third-generation model that launched in early 2022 – yet it increasingly looks like the device is off the cards for this year and may even have been canceled entirely.

The current ‌iPhone SE‌ contains the A15 Bionic chip – something it shares with the iPhone 13 mini, ‌iPhone 13‌, iPhone 13 Pro, ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max, iPhone 14, ‌iPhone 14‌ Plus, iPad…
