Apple has more new devices coming in 2022 than ever before. This is according to Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, who calls the product launches the "widest array" of new hardware launches in Apple's history. The excitement is set to begin this spring, with an event rumored for March or April. Another round of product releases is slated for the fall. As always, there's a flurry of activity leading up to WWDC and this year will be no different.
Apple has released the latest iOS security and bug fixes with iOS 15.2.1. For those who recently updated to iOS 15.2, it's time to open Settings and start the process again. While it may not seem important to take advantage of these minor updates, this one plugs a dangerous vulnerability in HomeKit.
Those experiencing bugs in various apps should also update right away. Apple has listed two bug fixes included in iOS 15.2.1:
The Oculus Quest 2 (pictured above) may have some serious competition from Apple starting next year. Apple plans to launch a combined augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) stand-alone headset. The company is likely to reveal the new hardware at WWDC over the summer, giving developers time to create apps. Apple is expected to produce a lightweight, sleek design with swappable headbands.
