New iMac Reportedly in Advanced Stage of Development

Apple's next iMac has reached an "advanced stage of development," according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. In his newsletter today, Gurman said the new iMac will have the same 24-inch display size and color options as the current model.

Hello Tim Cook iMac
The new iMac will likely include Apple's upcoming M3 chip, internal design changes, and a new manufacturing process for the stand, according to Gurman. The M3 chip will reportedly be manufactured based on Apple chipmaking partner TSMC's latest 3nm process for additional performance and power efficiency improvements.

Apple last updated the iMac in April 2021 with the M1 chip and an ultra-thin enclosure available in seven colors, including green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver. It is currently the only iMac in Apple's lineup, as the Intel-based 27-inch iMac and iMac Pro were both discontinued within the past two years. Gurman previously claimed that a larger iMac could return, but he did not share any new info about that possibility today.

Gurman expects the new iMac to be released in the second half of 2023 at the earliest.

ZERO interest in a new 24-in iMac.

Would buy a 32-in (or bigger) iMac in a heartbeat.

So basically it’s the same design and the same colors as M1 iMac. It’s just a specs upgrade. Oh well, I’ll take that over Apple diminishing the iMac lineup.

32 inch would have been such a breath of fresh air. But I guess the fear of cannibalizing other product lines is now a thing at Apple. Selling performance these days is a tough cookie when the latest version is just a spec bump and doesn’t look any different from the models it replaces.

Look at the M2 Pro/Max versus the M1. I think this is gonna have some impact on upgrade decisions.
