TARLAKENYO (Mar. 07, 2023) — Mark Gurman of Bloomberg reports that Apple may offer a new 24-inch iMac as early as the second half of the year.
Gurman writes in his most recent Power On email that the development of two new iMac models has reached a “late stage” and that Apple has begun production testing. Gurman anticipates that commercial manufacturing of the 2023 iMac will not begin for at least three more months, but the good news is that the updated versions will have several enhancements.
Apple’s next-generation M3 system-on-a-chip is said to be included in the iMac 2023. Gurman explains that the new chipset is anticipated to bring considerable performance and power efficiency advantages due to TSMC’s forthcoming 3nm technology.
Apple is purportedly redesigning a number of the iMac’s internal components. Gurman said the business intends to use a “distinct” manufacturing procedure to connect the iMac’s stand. Nonetheless, the all-in-one will continue to boast a 24-inch display and will be available in the same vibrant hues as its predecessor from 2021.
In addition to a new iMac, Gurman reports that the corporation is preparing to deliver the long-rumored 15-inch MacBook Air, a refreshed 13-inch model, and the first Apple Silicon Mac Pro. He anticipates that these Macs will arrive between late spring and early summer.
It is not clear whether the upcoming MacBook Airs will have M3 processors. Gurman hypothesizes that “at least” the 13-inch device might include Apple’s most recent processor, considering that the business currently provides an ultraportable M2 variant.
