After the introduction of the Mac Studio and the Apple Studio Display, Apple quietly discontinued the 27-inch iMac. Apple claims that has no plans to launch a new 27-inch iMacwhich gave strength to a possible iMac Pro, one that has also just lost integers, according to 9to5mac.
An iMac with an uncertain future
During the Peek performance presentation, Apple clearly stated that now there was only the Mac Pro left to make the leap to Apple silicon. This left out of the transition to the 27-inch iMac, which is no longer available in the Apple store. Automatically the rumors of a new iMac, perhaps one of 30 or 32 inches, perhaps called Pro, gained strength.
After all, the way of communicating the disappearance of the “27-inch iMac” left room for a model with other inches. Although it seems that it will not be so. According to 9to5Mac sources, Apple has no plans to release an iMac with a larger screen in the near future.
The publication, in addition, relies heavily on the sources, since they are the same ones that revealed the plans for the Mac Studio and the Studio Display before their launch. Thus, Apple would not be working on any iMac, because “has no plans to release a new, more powerful version of its all-in-one computer for now”.
According to 9to5mac, this not only includes the larger version, but also the fact that the current 24-inch iMac won’t come with an M1 Pro, Max, or Ultra. Apparently, Apple would be working on a new 24-inch iMac by 2023, but in a similar way to the MacBook Air or the 13-inch MacBook Pro, not thinking about the most powerful processors.
As always, we must take this information with some perspective. Still correct, Apple plans can change quickly. More if we consider that much of the design work is already done thanks to the existing redesigned models and the availability of new chips. For now, the next stop will be the WWDC, we’ll see if there are any news that give us clues to the future of the iMac.
