Apple won’t release a new iMac until August, according to Jon Prosser
Over the weekend, rumors speculated that Apple was ready to release an updated iMac as soon as this week, claiming the machine wouldn’t feature the long awaited redesign we have all been hoping for, instead being a minor spec increase before the release of new Apple Silicon machines later this year.
However, prominent leaker Jon Prosser has dismissed the claims, saying we won’t be seeing a new iMac launch until August. Twitter-based leaker @Soybeys said on Sunday that a new iMac would launch “this week,” going on to say the machine would likely launch on Monday (today).
Responding to the tweet, Prosser replied “Nope.” In a second tweet, the leaker went on to say “If you want the new iMac, keep an eye out for August.”
At this point it is almost certain that a new iMac is being prepared for launch. Prior to WWDC20 last month it was rumored that a new iMac would make an appearance during the event, and afterwards it was said that the machine was pulled at the last minute, with an announcement expected at any moment.
It is believed Apple will release yet another iMac either later this year or early 2021 that will feature the first major design overhaul since 2012. The machine will supposedly feature an Apple Silicon chip and launch not so long after Apple introduces a new 14.1-inch MacBook Pro.
