Kuo: New 24-Inch iMac Coming in 2024

Apple will release a new 24-inch iMac in 2024, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo's prediction is in line with previous rumors from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who has also said that a new ‌iMac‌ is likely to come in 2024.

iMac M3 Blue Feature
Kuo does not mention which chip Apple will use, but Gurman has claimed that Apple will use the M3 chip in the ‌iMac‌. The M3 chip is expected to feature an 8-core GPU and 10-core GPU, and because it is built on a new 3-nanometer process, it will have performance and efficiency improvements.

The current 24-inch ‌iMac‌ came out in 2021, and it is equipped with an M1 chip. Apple has opted not to update the ‌iMac‌ since the debut of the ‌M1‌ chip, so it is overdue for a refresh.

Gurman has long maintained that Apple has no intention of introducing an M2 version of the ‌iMac‌, which would be accurate with Kuo's projected timeline. Last week, Japanese site Mac Otakara said that Apple would release a 24-inch ‌iMac‌ with ‌M2‌ and ‌M2‌ Pro chips in the near future, but that appears to be inaccurate.

Wow. What a surprise haha.

Seriously tho, it's waaaay overdue (anyone reading this page probably feels the same), and a 24" screen seems so quaint at this point. A base iMac should be at least 27" minimum at this point IMHO.

Apple will launch an iPhone with better camera and faster CPU in 2024. There it goes, I’m an insider.

I really hope they take this opportunity during this refresh to drop a larger 27"-32" iMac as well?

I thought Apple switched to making their own silicon because Intel was too slow to innovate. How come Apple is so slow with their updates when they own the whole stack now?

Bummer. I would have preferred sooner rather than later. My 2011 21.5 is gonna be looong in the tooth by the time the M3 iMac gets released.
