According to Taiwan-based supply chain sources, Apple is readying their new range of next generation iMac machines to enter mass production as soon as next month, with the company eyeing up between August and October to release the new hardware to the public alongside an all new “server-grade model” for creative pros which will launch towards the end of 2017.
While supply chain sources can often be unreliable, Apple themselves has previously confirmed that the company is working on a new iMac which is expected to launch later “this year” however no release date was mentioned. When Apple’s Phil Schiller and Craig Federighi confirmed Apple’s plans they announced one of their new machines will be geared more towards “the pro market” so the sound of a “server-grade model” for creative pros being released isn’t as far fetched as it might sound.
It’s likely Apple’s new range of iMac machines will be manufactured by Quanta Computer and come in 21.5- and 27-inch options just like their existing models.
Apple currently has a 21.5-inch and a 27-inch iMac available in the market and the new products are expected to be the upgrades of the two models and are expected to hit the market in the third quarter to catch up with the year-end holiday season.
