Apple Will Not Debut New iMac, 8GB iPhone 5s at WWDC

mavericksimacNotable Apple journalist Jim Dalrymple -- known for his "Yep" and "Nope" confirmations on Apple rumors -- today indicated that Apple will not be introducing a new iMac or a lower-capacity 8GB iPhone at Monday's Worldwide Developers Conference.

Dalrymple's most recent "Nope" is in response to a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who suggested earlier today that Apple would debut both hardware products at WWDC. According to Kuo, Apple had plans to launch an 8GB iPhone designed for emerging markets and a lower-cost iMac.

While an iMac update might not be imminent, there have been a few hints that a refresh is in the works for a later date, including a reference to new iMac models in the OS X 10.9.4 beta released to developers today.

It remains unclear whether the eventual iMac update will include a price drop, but it is not out of the question given the $100 price cut on the recently updated MacBook Airs.

Very happy that the 8GB 5S isn't going to happen. Let's move up to 32/64/128GB across the board Apple, it's about time.

Thank god we aren't getting another 8GB iPhone. 8GB in this era is nothing but a waste and quite laughable.

I would have thought that an iMac refresh being in the works for some future date was a pretty safe bet, even without any reference in the beta.


Possibly. Look at the Mac Mini though, that poor thing hasn't seen an update since 2012!

I guess I should complain considering it's called MacRumors and not MacFacts.

I think we'll all be disappointed when we find out no hardware is released at WWDC.
