We’ve already heard rumors and speculation that Apple brought refreshed iMac models later this year. They should have more power and a new design that will be similar to the Pro Display XDR monitor. However, a credible advisor has reaffirmed some speculation about the upcoming Mac. According to l0vetodream (via Macrumors), it is stated that the new iMac will arrive sometime this year and will have a larger screen than Apple’s currently largest offering in the iMac lineup.
If you’re not aware, Apple currently has a 21.5-inch and 27-inch “iMac” in the series. And a larger screen could mean something around 30 inches or possibly more. Tipter adds that the new model will replace the current 27-inch version. Since the upcoming iMac is said to have a similar design to the XDR Pro screen, it could also have the same screen size, which is 32 inches.

It is also rumored that the new iMacs will run on Apple’s silicon (perhaps M1X) instead of Intel. The iPhone manufacturer is already said to be internally testing chips with as many as 16 high-performance cores and four efficiency cores. In addition, the macOS Big Sur 11.3 beta also seems to have unveiled two new iMac tags – “iMac21.1” and “iMac21.2”, which are obviously new as both don’t match existing iMac models.
Tipster Jon Prosser, adding to the list of rumors and speculation, mentioned earlier that iMacs could also be in five different colors.
