On the weekend, prominent leaker @l0vetodream ratified rumours that one of the new Apple silicon-powered iMac models coming sometime in the first half of 2021 will feature the largest display ever on Apple’s all-in-one computers — reports MacRumors.
Apple currently offers the iMac in 21.5-inch and 27-inch display variants, and both are scheduled to get massive design overhauls and upgraded performance courtesy of Apple’s in-house processors sometime this year. The iMac’s design hasn’t changed in any meaningful way since 2012.
A private tweet from @l0vetodream sent out earlier today roughly translates to “The iMac’s screen is really big, bigger than the biggest one”. The leaker says the new, larger iMac will replace the 27-inch one that’s presently on offer.
The Pro Display XDR, Apple’s standalone professional-grade monitor, features a 32-inch display — the biggest on any Apple device. The prevailing theory is that the new iMac will feature a 32-inch display as well.
In addition to a larger screen and Apple’s own chipsets, the new iMacs will also do away with the clunky metal chin at the bottom, bring slimmer bezels, and feature a design language more in line with the current generation of Apple products.
According to another leaker, 2021’s iMacs could also come in a variety of new colours.
