The rumor turns again; this time it’s about reports of a new iMac model that could hit stores as soon as late 2023.
According to Mark Gurman at Bloomberg (opens in a new tab)the iMac would ignore the Apple M2 chip and switch to the Apple M3 chip. In his newsletter, Gurman says, “I haven’t seen anything to indicate there will be a new iMac before the M3 chip generation, which won’t arrive until the end of this year at the earliest or next year. .”
Apple relaunched the iMac in 2021 with an all-new design and a gorgeous 24-inch display. It debuted with Apple’s all-new silicon and received high marks from us in our iMac Review for its excellent display, superb webcam and much better performance than its predecessor, so getting a new model of iMac is definitely something we’ve been looking forward to too. It’s still a shame that it’s so late to enter the scene.
Is an M3 iMac version really possible?
This is not the first time that this rumor has been circulating regarding the iMac M3, because Gurman asserted the same assertion in 2022, until the release year. And Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also chimed in on the past And gift rumors, claiming that a Mac Pro and an iMac Pro would be released in 2023.
He also noted that the iMac M3 will have a “similar form factor design”, which matches what Apple did with the Mac mini and MacBook Pro by keeping the exterior essentially the same while changing the design. internal.
And while there’s no official confirmation of the next iMac having an M3 chip or releasing this year, Apple hasn’t included the iMac in its suite of M2 products that feature the Macbook Air, mac miniAnd Macbook Pro.
It looks like an M3 iMac release is at least on the way, with reports coming from such reliable sources, although with no official confirmation, it’s important to take all of this with a heavy pinch of salt.
