Apple Reportedly Developing Larger iMac With Over 30-Inch Display

Apple is in the early stages of developing a new iMac with over a 30-inch display, which would be the largest-ever size for the all-in-one computer, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. In his weekly Power On newsletter, Gurman said this iMac remains "further out," suggesting that it might be at least a year or two away from launching.

iMac Pro 2022 27 and 24 iMac
"The company is also conducting early work on an iMac with a screen over 30 inches," wrote Gurman. He did not share any additional details at this time.

Excluding refurbished models, the iMac is currently only available in a 24-inch size, as Apple discontinued the Intel-based 27-inch iMac and iMac Pro over the last few years. Despite occasional rumors about the iMac Pro making a comeback, there is still no larger iMac with Apple silicon available. One solution is to purchase a 27-inch Studio Display and connect it to a Mac with Apple silicon, but this is not an all-in-one setup.

Released in April 2021, the 24-inch iMac features a colorful, ultra-thin design and is equipped with the M1 chip. Gurman expects the 24-inch iMac to be updated with the as-yet-unannounced M3 chip by early next year. All current Apple silicon chips are manufactured based on TSMC's 5nm process, while the M3 chip is expected to move to a 3nm process for significant performance and power efficiency improvements.

A larger iMac is one of many products on Apple's product roadmap, according to Gurman. He also expects a second-generation Apple Watch Ultra to launch later this year, suggesting that the high-end watch might be updated on an annual basis like other models.

Starting price: $3,999 w/ 16gb RAM and 250GB SSD.

"Reasonable" by MacRumors standards.

I've been chugging along on my 2017 iMac waiting for a newer iMac. The 24 inch screen isn't big enough to serve my needs, and I prefer not having the clutter with a mini+monitor situation. But like the above poster, my patience is getting thinner every time Apple has an event and the iMac receives no upgrade.

An ideal size. Way long overdue for an upgrade. Call it the iMac Pro. ?️

It will be an instant buy for me. Just make sure it comes in a Midnight color, please.

I would seriously consider buying a 30" iMac to replace my 27" iMac. I'm not interested in the current iMacs because I don't want a smaller screen. A Studio Display + Mac Studio or Mac Mini setup costs a lot. So I think there is definitely a gap in the Mac lineup that a 30" iMac would fill well.

Wish list for redesigned iMacs:

* Allow vertical and horizontal adjustment of the screen.
* Follow the design philosophy of the current MBA and MBP and make functionality and connectivity more important than a thin enclosure.
* Make Ethernet standard on all configurations.
* Make the full set of ports standard on all configurations.
* Don't remove the headphone jack!

Here's hoping it doesn't include 8GM of RAM. Well it better not!
