'Mid 2014' 27-Inch iMac Also Referenced on Apple Support Page

Following yesterday's spotting of an unreleased "Mac mini (Mid 2014)" on an Apple support page, French site Consomac noticed [Google Translate, via MacPlus] another entry on the same page mentioning a Mid 2014 27-inch iMac model. Both the Mac mini and iMac entries have since been removed from the page, although they are still visible on a cached version of the page from yesterday.

Apple did release a new low-end Mid 2014 21.5-inch iMac last month, but the remainder of the iMac lineup remained untouched and those machines are still considered Late 2013 models.

While the Mac mini entry has been taken as a hint that an upgrade may be imminent, especially since the machine has not been updated since October 2012, the iMac entry may point more towards the inclusions being an error. With the new low-end iMac having been added just last month, it seems unlikely that further iMac updates will occur in the near future.

It is possible Apple may have planned for a broader iMac update in the middle of the year with the low-end model appearing as part of that refresh, but the company may have changed plans due to a lack of chip availability or other factors. Alternatively, it may simply be an error unrelated to Apple's product launch plans.

Right but you guys read too much in to CorporateSpeak. Technically all the products that have come out this year are the most powerful in the company's history. So Cook's statement above is true.

Of course he also said Apple would be coming out with new product categories, which has not materialized but also is too soon to expect them as Apple of recent years does not announce new products until very late sumer or early fall. Here in the northern hemisphere, where Apple is HQ'd, it's still mid-summer and will be for another month.

So too soon to gripe. Too soon. Stop watching the paint dry on the walls and do something fun or interesting today!
