In 2020, Apple upgraded its iMac Pro line to SSDs but also nano texture displays until launching the new colourful M1-based iMacs last year. The iMac Pro, which was first released in 2017, appears to be getting a refresh, with new chips, a larger display, and for a special touch.
Apple is Schedule to Release a Rebranded iMac Pro in 2022
A new “bigger than the current 24-inch” iMac” model, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman in his most recent Power On newsletter, is on its way from Apple. He does say, however, that the design will be similar to the most recent M1 iMac models. It’s a huge relief that the new iMac Pro won’t have the black side-bezels.
“I’m expecting a new iMac Pro this year, which will be bigger than the original 24-inch model. The M1 Pro as well as M1 Max processors found in the MacBook Pro could be found in this model, Gurman wrote in his newsletter. As he went on to say, “I’d also expect the current iMac Pro to get a design similar to the existing M1 iMac.”
The iMac Pro, according to Gurman, will look like the existing 24-inch iMac, but that could be a hint at Apple’s priority for a more businesslike design for its “Pro” models. If this is the case, Apple may stick with the original iMac Pro model’s Space Gray colour scheme instead of a more vibrant one.
Apple’s new iMac Pro might be powered by the M1 Pro or Max chips found in the most recent MacBook Pro. In addition to powering the iMac Pro, the rumoured M2 chip was indeed expected to power the MacBook Air (and even upcoming MacBook Pro models) slated for release this year.
This same Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) recently reported that Apple plans to release a 27-inch iMac with such a miniLED screen and assistance for its 120Hz ProMotion advanced technologies this year. So, it’s possible that this is the iMac Pro model which Gurman has in mind.
Along with the much-anticipated iPhone SE 2 and upgraded iPad Air, Apple is expected to unveil a new version of the iMac Pro during first quarter of 2019. Stay connected for more information about what Apple has in store.
