With 2022 having now wrapped up for good, it’s time to look ahead to the exciting events and releases to come in 2023. This week, we highlight some of the personal tech devices that are to come, and the exciting event highlights of the year.

Anticipated Gadget Releases
There are plenty of tech gadget releases to get excited about over the coming year; whether you’re interested in the ever-developing world of virtual reality, or favour tech that simplifies your daily life, there’s surely something to pique your interest.
There are a number of anticipated Virtual Reality (VR) releases to come in 2023; according to Tech Radar, Apple’s first ever VR headset may be releasing in the coming year. Undoubtably this is exciting news for anyone interested in VR, especially as the device is rumoured to use Apple’s incredibly powerful M2 chip, alongside dual 8K screens - meaning the device will have four times as many pixels as any other on the market. Similarly, Meta are likely releasing their 3rd Gen VR headset at the end of the year, keeping it at an affordable price point whilst improving battery life and other VR features.
As you’ll likely have seen advertised over the past couple of months, a number of mobile phone companies are coming out with foldable phones. In a move that harks back to the era of the iconic flip phone, companies are reworking the idea to provide a fully foldable handset. Samsung’s refreshed Z Fold phones are likely to come out in the coming months, as is the rumoured Google Pixel Fold - Google’s first ever folding handset.
As highlighted in Bloomberg, 2023 will also see improvements in e-bikes - expediting daily commutes to work. As reported, ‘E-bike sales surpassed $760 million last year, up 15% from 2021’. If you enjoy a daily cycle to work, then the world of e-bikes is something to watch.
