Didn’t Apple forget something in April when we were introduced to the new iMac 2021? That’s right, a bigger model, which adequately replaces the previous 27-inch model. The question arises: How much longer does Apple need for this? The answer shouldn’t necessarily please you.
Apple relies entirely on Macs with in-house processors, while Intel CPUs are history. Sounds good, but unfortunately not true. Recently, in spring, they “forgot” to introduce a model with a larger screen in addition to the new iMac with an M1 chip and 24-inch display. The Intel model with a 27-inch display is out of date but is still in the range. Anyone who hoped that Apple would introduce a successor in the same year will, unfortunately, wait in vain.
A current report from the rumour mill spoils our appetite a bit because in 2021 there will be nothing with a new, large iMac. It will only come in the course of 2022, although it was not stated whether it will be in the beginning or in the end of the year – quite frustrating for potential customers who are eagerly awaiting such a model (source: Dylandkt).
It is not yet entirely clear how Apple will furnish the bigger one, Apple insider Mark Gurman from Bloomberg recently spent too much detail on it. Just this much: Larger display and an even faster processor than the M1 currently built by Apple, probably an M1X or the M2X. The size of the display can only be speculated. But one or the other would like a screen monster with a 32-inch diagonal, comparable to the extremely expensive Pro Display XDR.
If all of this is true, it is reasonable to assume that Apple not only wants to conjure up a larger iMac but also inherit the iMac Pro, which has already been discontinued this year, with the model. The prices are likely to be correspondingly high – bargains are not to be expected.
