In a tweet, the leaker posted an image of Apple's logo used for marketing the upcoming event and an image of the retro rainbow Apple logo alongside the colorful lineup of G3 iMacs. Apple leaker Jon Prosser previously reported that these upcoming iMacs would debut in various colors, a throwback move to the G3 ‌iMac‌.

Beyond an array of colors, Bloomberg has reported that the first major redesign of the ‌iMac‌ since 2012 will take inspiration from the Pro Display XDR, with no chin and narrower side bezels.

Apple is working on two new versions of the ‌iMac‌ to replace its existing 21.5-inch and 27-inch models. l0vetodream recently suggested that one of the new models will be bigger than the existing 27-inch ‌iMac‌.

Pro XDR stand is “spring loaded”.. new imac with new stand. Starting at low $3999.

A colorful phone, sure. But why a computer? I want it black or dark grey.
Suit yourself. But they are lots of us who, especially after the depressing last 12 months, would welcome more uplifting color options than the same old sterile silver or gloomy gray.

While this has likely been posted 57 times already, in various threads (sorry, I’ve not read every post - I know, slacking), but the Loaded in Spring Loaded is referencing quantity. We’re gonna get a crap-ton of goodies; Air Tags, iPads, iMacs, OSes, iPhone cases, Watch bands, etc. It’ll be a big day.

Wow. This is really happening... ?

I hope there’s also an iMac that looks similar to the Pro Display XDR or that is around 30”.

Let’s gooo.

Well, I can tell you they 'may' debut it, and I am not a 'reliable leaker'.


The main headline of the "Spring Loaded" event is expected to be brand new iPad Pros
If the main headline is iPad then I cannot imagine they would be 'higher' up the event chain than all new iMacs.

Tim, don't forget to make the display height adjustable please on the mega iMac.
God the price....:eek:
How dare you request adjustment capability for the display height? Apple will tell us they had a team figure out the perfect height for us. [emoji56]
