Apple is reportedly planning to release a redesigned iMac lineup with Apple Silicon chips, two new Mac Pro models and a cheaper display in 2021.
Sources said the redesigned iMac Pro display is reminiscent of the XDR, with all slimmer bezels and no metal chins. Bloomberg. Redesign, the company’s first move since 2012, also said that the iMac leads from a curved rear to a flatter rear section.
Sources said the iMac update would be Apple’s biggest visual redesign in 2021. There are two versions of the iMac in development, codes J456 and J457, which will replace the current 21.5-inch iMac and 27-inch iMac devices.
Both will use a new generation of first-generation Apple Silicon processors that will also appear in the 2021 MacBook Pro lineup. Mac Silicon, Apple’s first piece of the M1, debuted in 2020.
In 2020, rumors suggested that the company was working on a new iMac design with “iPad Pro design language” and “Pro Display like Beadels”. An iOS 14 icon representing a refreshed iMac was also discovered in 2020.
Apple released new iMac models in 2020, but those retained the years-old design of the 2012 lineup.
New Mac Pro Model, Cheap Apple Display
Along with iMac, Apple is also working on a pair of new Mac Pro models. The first will be similar to the current version which was launched in 2019 and may continue to use Intel processors. The second version, equipped with an Apple silicon chip, can be about half the size and feature a design that “may invite nostalgia for the Power Mac G4 Cube,” Bloomberg Reported.
In November 2020, a report claimed that Apple was re-engineered and working on a smaller Mac Pro device – though its processor type was unclear. A month later, another report claimed that Apple was developing a much faster proprietary processor for its Pro desktops and notebooks, including a new Mac Pro.
It is also said that the company is working on a lower-priced external monitor as part of its new Mac desktop efforts. No other information is available on the monitor other than the fact that it will be much cheaper than the $ 4,999 Pro Display XDR.
