Apple is rumored to release new iMac models in 2021. Since the announcement of Mac’s transition from Intel Core processor to Apple Silicon at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June this year, the industry is speculating the new models to not only have faster CPU and GPU but also a completely new design language similar to the flat edge-to-edge 2020 iPad Pro and iPhone 12.
2020 has been a very busy year for the Cupertino tech giant. In spite of experiencing production difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic imposed health precautionary measures, Apple launched new products and features to give people innovative and improved technology like tablets, smartphones, software, and services for people to continue their social and professional activities in this testing time.
Concept iMac on Apple Silicon with Thinner Bezels
Svetapple.sk shared exclusive renders of the expected 24-inch and 32-inch ARM-based iMacs. The tech publisher’s concept designs are based on the circulating reports, leaks, and rumors by supply chain sources and tech analysts. If Apple does decide to change the design of the new all-in-one desktops, that will be after eight years. The current version of the iMac was updated back in 2012.
As per the images, the display of the new iMacs will “undergo a fundamental change.” By reducing the size of the bezels, Apple will deliver a larger display from 21.5-inch to 24-inch and from 27-inch to 32-inch in the respective models. The edges would be thin and curved like the current iPad Pro.
It is also expected that the smaller all-in-one computer will support 4K or 5K resolution and the bigger would support 6K resolution. However, the tech publisher believes that the aluminum stand component of the new iMac will remain the same.
As per rumors, the new iMac models are expected to ship with a custom A14T chip, custom GPU (internally called Lifuka), and more RAM. The new CPU and GPU processors are rumored to be built on a 5nm process which is the same as the A14 Bionic chip of the iPhone 12 series. The chips are speculated to deliver faster performance and improved user experience. Another concept design of the Apple Silicon Macs claims that the machine will run iOS apps natively.
