Gurman: ‘Big iMac’ could feature similar processor to iPad Pro


The rumor: Apple’s next iMac may include an iPad Pro-like processor, according to Mark Gurman (89.1% accurate).

  • In a cryptic tweet, Gurman suggests that the next iMac may use “essentially the same processor as an iPad Pro”
  • A “big iMac” is also referenced, but no exact sizing has been provided…rumors suggest both a 23-inch and 30-inch+ model are in the works

Our take: While this could be baseless speculation, Gurman is known to tweet things like this when he’s heard a tidbit in the background. Plus, it adds up: Apple’s M1 chip is very similar to the A14 processor, so the next Mac chips will likely be similar to the A-series, too.
