Apple Accidentally Leaks Surprise Upgrades In New iPhone Launch

Leakers have already revealed Apple’s controversial iPhone 14 launch strategy, and now Apple itself has inadvertently revealed its next major hardware upgrade.

In his popular Power On newsletter, Bloomberg Mark Gurman Code from Apple’s second iOS 15.5 beta release represents the company’s unannounced next-generation Mac. And they will come much sooner than you think.

Gurman says that’s because spoilers in the iOS 15.5 code quietly add compatibility for these next-gen Macs to any iPhone (6S or later) with the update supported. What’s more, iOS 15.5 is expected to launch as early as next week, demonstrating that Apple feels there is no time to delay.

So, when and what is this mysterious new Mac? The biggest date to circle on the calendar is June 6, which marks the start of Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Here, Apple will give the first appearances of iOS 16, watchOS 9 and macOS 13, and the latter is expected to appear in the new MacBooks based on the M2 chipset that Apple is eagerly waiting for.

Gurman himself had previously decomposition Details of the M2 lineup will show the chip, along with the new M2-based MacBook Air, entry-level MacBook Pro and Mac Mini models. Additional M2 Pro, M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips will arrive later this year in the new 14-inch MacBook Pro, 16-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro.

Given Apple’s tribute to the amazing M1 chip and worldwide interest in the M2, it’s understandable that Apple wanted to update iPhone support ahead of time, even if the release risks leaking from its own software.

After all, it’s a gamble Apple has taken before, and it’s very likely they’ll try again with the growing pressure of the iPhone 14 lineup.
