Apple reportedly working on larger iMac, likely with ‘M3 Pro’ and ‘M3 Max’ chips
After releasing the redesigned 24-inch M1 iMac last year and discontinuing the previous Intel-powered 27-inch model, Apple is said to be working on a new, larger-screened iMac aimed at the professional market, with Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman suggesting the machine could feature new ‘M3 Pro’ and ‘M3 Max’ chips, hinting that a release is still a while away.
With Apple’s newest custom silicon chip, the M2 chip only released last month, it is likely that Apple won’t announce its “M3” series until 2023 at the earliest, which is when the iPhone maker is expected to announce an updated version of the 24-inch iMac.
“I also still believe that Apple is working on a larger-screened iMac aimed at the professional market. I’d imagine this will use a variation of the M3 chip, likely an M3 Pro and M3 Max,” said Gurman on Sunday in the latest edition of his weekly Power On newsletter. “That would match the chips inside of the MacBook Pro. I don’t think the combination of a Mac Studio or Mac mini plus an Apple Studio Display cuts it for many pro users who want more screen real estate.”
