'iMac Pro' Coming in 2022 With M1 Pro/Max Chips, 27-Inch Mini-LED Display, MacBook Pro Ports and More

The next-generation iMac that's in the works could be called the "‌iMac‌ Pro," according to leaker Dylandkt. The device will feature the same M1 Pro and M1 Max chips that Apple introduced with the MacBook Pro models, and there could possibly be "an added configuration."

Apple is said to be using the "Pro" naming to differentiate the upcoming ‌iMac‌ from the 24-inch ‌iMac‌ that was released earlier this year. As it will use the ‌M1 Pro‌ and Max chips, Apple considers it a "Pro" device and is calling it the ‌iMac‌ Pro internally, according to Dylandkt


The leaker claims that the ‌iMac‌ will feature a 27-inch mini-LED display with ProMotion technology, though some prior rumors have indicated that the next-generation ‌iMac‌ will have a larger display. Unlike the 24-inch ‌iMac‌, the "‌iMac‌ Pro" will feature dark bezels, and bezel size could be slimmed down.

Design wise, it could look similar to the 24-inch ‌iMac‌ and the Pro Display XDR, and Apple has apparently tested Face ID for the machine, but this is not a confirmed feature.

The base model ‌iMac‌ will feature 16GB memory and 512GB of storage, and all models will be equipped with an HDMI port, an SD card slot, and several USB-C/Thunderbolt ports, similar to the MacBook Pro. Apple is also said to be including an Ethernet port on the power adapter.

‌Dylandkt‌ says that the ‌iMac‌ will have a starting price at or over $2,000, and it will be launching in the first half of 2022. The upcoming "‌iMac‌ Pro" will replace the current Intel-based 27-inch ‌iMac‌ models.

We haven't heard much about Apple's larger ‌iMac‌, but Bloomberg's Mark Gurman has confirmed that such a machine is in the works. Apple reportedly paused work on the bigger ‌iMac‌ to work on the 24-inch model, but now that the 24-inch ‌iMac‌ is out, development can resume.

Display analyst Ross Young has also said that Apple is working on a new 27-inch iMac with a mini-LED display and ProMotion display technology.

I was hoping for a 32" version with the 6K monitor. I hope they give it as an option, then I will upgrade the current development machine: iMac27 Intel Core i9 9900 which is always turning on the fans.

The Pro Display XDR is 6K 32" monitor.

This is what I'm waiting for. 27 is nice, but for the 'Pro' level iMac I'd like to see a bit more real estate.
