Leaker says Apple’s rumored new high-end iMac won’t launch until 2022
Following the launch of Apple’s all-new 24-inch M1 iMac earlier this year, thoughts have turned to the inevitable redesign of the larger 27-inch model, which is expected to get the same major redesign as the smaller model with improved performance and Apple’s next-generation M-series processors.
However, according to leaker DylanDkt, the rumored new high-end iMac won’t launch until 2022, claiming Apple doesn’t want the launch of the new machine to overshadow other new M-series machines launching later this year, including the rumored new MacBook Pro which is expected to get a full redesign and a new 14-inch screen size.
Leaker DylanDkt is not alone in claiming a larger iMac is in the works. Bloomberg reported earlier this month that a large version of Apple’s redesigned M1 iMac is still “en route,” suggesting it may feature an M1X or M2X chip, but further details are still unknown.
Bloomberg’s report suggested Apple had paused development of its large screen redesigned iMac in part to focus on releasing the 24-inch model on schedule in April, which boasts a forward-thinking design in seven new colors, camera, and audio improvements, and more.
