Apple to Debut iMac Refresh – Apple is rumored to be working on a follow-up to the 2021 24-inch iMac, although the company has not updated it yet. Last week, Ming-Chi Kuo, an industry expert, stated that he anticipated the Cupertino, California-based corporation to introduce a new 24-inch iMac in the upcoming year.
In contrast to Kuo, a recent report claims that Apple plans to release a 24-inch iMac replacement model before the end of this month. According to the source, the company intends to introduce new iPad models in the coming year.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman’s Power On newsletter, Apple is preparing to release the much-anticipated 24-inch iMac update towards the end of October. According to reports, the corporation may unveil the new model at the end of this month during a Mac-focused launch. Gurman said in his newsletter, “I believe the Mac announcement will take place on either the 30th or 31st of this month,” Gurman specified in his newsletter. Gurman also pointed out that Apple retail stores were in short supply of the existing iMac, hinting at a refreshed model arriving soon.
Gurman also mentioned the arrival of a bigger iMac Pro model in late 2024 or early 2025. With a 32-inch screen, the iMac Pro is expected to be the largest iMac that Apple has ever offered. Kuo claimed that a higher-end iMac with a 32-inch mini-LED display would launch in 2025, and Gurman’s reporting supports this assumption.
Gurman added that Apple does not intend to release any new iPad models this year. Following multiple reports of an imminent iPad release, Apple last week unveiled the Apple Pencil (2023), a less expensive substitute for the second-generation device. According to Gurman, the business intends to introduce new iPad models sometime in March of 2024. It has been rumored that the business is working on updates for the iPad Air, iPad mini, and entry-level iPad. According to Gurman, Apple is also considering the release of a new iPad Pro in the future.
Since the company unveiled the M1-powered 24-inch iMac in vivid colors during its “Spring Loaded” event in April, Apple has not updated the iMac in more than two years. The M1 CPU powers the 24-inch iMac, which comes in seven different colors. The 4.5K retina display on the 11.5mm thin iMac has a peak brightness of 500 nits.
Apple last introduced new iPad Pro models powered by the M2 chip and a new 10th generation iPad with a new design and keyboard accessory in October 2022. Apple hasn’t updated its iPad lineup this year either.
