Apple’s iMac range used to consist of a 21-inch and a 27-inch model. That all changed last year, however, when Apple unveiled a new 24-inch model using the company’s M1 chipset, but that left questions about what happened to the 27-inch model.
Based on the popular rumours, Apple could refresh this model later this year, where it might be known as the iMac Pro (not to be confused with the previously discontinued model), but given the Pro moniker, it sounds like it won’t come cheap . For those hoping for a lower-end 27-inch iMac, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggests that won’t be the case any time soon.
In his latest Power-On Newsletter, Gurman says Apple is likely to focus on the Pro model for now. He also notes that if Apple had wanted to make a larger, lower-end iMac, they would have done it months ago, and maybe even launched it last year alongside the 24-inch model.
At the moment, rumors are claiming that Apple is likely to equip the iMac Pro with the same M1 Max and Pro chipsets found in the MacBook Pro refresh in 2021. We have no idea how much it’ll cost, but given how it sounds it’s going to be a pretty powerful machine, and combined with a huge 27-inch display, it probably won’t be cheap.
