The rumor: Apple is planning a major refresh for the next, big iMac, according to DigiTimes (58.3% accurate).
- Contrary to prior rumors about a Mini-LED display coming on the new iMac, DigiTimes believes the LCD display will be staying (although it’ll be a brighter LCD)
- The new design is thinner than the current model that Apple sells
- New colors, similar to the 24-inch iMac, may also appear on the redesigned 27-inch for the first time
- This new iMac is expected to drop as early as Spring 2022
Our take: I don’t buy that it’ll still be an LCD panel, considering how Apple has started to roll out Mini-LED to their other Pro devices already (ex. iPad Pro, MacBook Pro). I do buy that this is coming in the Spring and that it will come in more colors than silver, though.
