The rumor: Apple is not updating the 27-inch iMac to Apple Silicon until sometime next year, according to dylandkt (81.3% accurate).
- The larger iMac delay reportedly comes because Apple doesn’t want the 2021 M1X products to complete for attention and due to other delays in product releases
- Apple’s next ‘iMac Pro’ could have a screen larger than 30 inches and an M1X or M2 chip inside
Our take: While this is super disappointing as someone who was planning to use this larger iMac as my main computer, at least we are getting some M1X devices later this year. A redesigned iMac, Mac mini and MacBook Pro launching at once would definitely be a lot, and Dylan definitely makes a good point in his tweet below.
