New Apple iMac, Bigger Display, New Processor, Slimmer Bezel
Apple who have failed to redesign their Mac PC for more than five years is set to deliver the biggest iMac revamp in a decade with insiders claiming, “It’s long overdue”.
At its Spring-Loaded event tomorrow night in Australia, the world’s biggest tech firm is set to reveal a totally redesigned all-in-one desktop PC that will also have a brand new “Apple Made” processor.
As one person said “All that Apple is doing is catching up with their rivals and finally entering the modern PC era.
According to sources everything has been redesigned from the base to the display to the brand-new processor running the device to the external design.
On the front, Apple is set to deliver a new larger 23″ display as well as a 30″ display that has been manufactured by Samsung and LG. These new displays replace the old 23″ current model display.
They have also slimmed down the bezels around the edge of the display and removed the “chin” at the bottom entirely.
It’s also been revealed that the all-new iMac range will come in four new colours alongside the traditional silver: Space grey, rose gold, green, and sky blue — the same colours as the iPad Air.
Apple ditched Intel processors last year so it will be interesting to see how well the new machine performs as the iMac has been overshadowed by the new MacBooks and Mac Mini.
The US Company claims the new chip will deliver cooler processing and efficiency.
Apple has been working on the successor to the M1 chip in the MacBook Pro, and the chip inside the new iMac could potentially have as many as 16 high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores. In other words, the difference will be night and day said Digital Trends.
But unlike the MacBooks that launched in 2020, this will not simply be a new chip retrofitted into old chassis. No, the iMac’s entire design is set to undergo a radical change. Instead of the tapering curve on the rear of the device, expect to see a much flatter body reminiscent of the iPad Pro.
That means squared-off sides and flat edges, much like Apple’s Pro Display XDR monitor.
In other Apple news it’s been revealed that the US tech giant is stepping up development its own dual-band 5G AiP (antenna in package) module, which, along with Qualcomm’s solutions, may be featured in its next-generation iPhones, according to industry sources.
