Gurman: Larger, redesigned iMac will likely feature M1X or M2X chip

The rumor: Apple is planning a more powerful chip for the iMac to replace the current 27-inch model, according to Mark Gurman (89.1% accurate, via Power On).

  • The new, larger iMac is still coming…but Gurman is not sure exactly when this product will be dropping
  • As for the processor inside, “it likely will be an M1X, the beefier version of the current M1, or an M2X”

Our take: While I was really hopeful for a 2021 release on the larger iMac, I think it’ll probably come sometime in the first half of next year. Don’t worry though, as the M1X MacBook Pro is still on track to release in Fall.
