Dylandkt, which has built its reputation regarding Apple leaks over the past year, has shared some information about a possible new iMac or iMac Pro that could be launched in the first half of 2022.
According to new information, this new iMac, which is still not aware if this could be the 27-inch replacement or a new iMac Pro, and will include a lot of features that have just been added to the new MacBook Pro.
Starting with the screen, Dylan says that this iMac Pro will have mini-LED technology and ProMotion, which are two features available with the new MacBook Pro. Although he does not say the size of the screen, the doctor thinks it will have a design similar to the 24-inch iMac and Pro Display XDR.
It’s important to note that both products have different designs, which we could assume Dylan says this one will have a more square look rather than rounded edges that we had with previous Macs. Another thing that sets the 24-inch iMac apart from this new model is that the iMac Pro is said to have black frames.
Dylan believes that this new iMac Pro will have a base model configuration of 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD storage, just like the new MacBook Pro. Users will also have the option to choose between M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.
In another tweet, the doctor says that “able to be an additional configuration, but at this point I can not say for sure. “
It is also rumored that the iMac Pro has an HDMI port, SD card slot and USB-C ports. Like the 24-inch iMac, this one is expected to have Ethernet on the brick standard.
Dylan also says that Face ID was tested for this Mac, although it has not been confirmed. This week, Apple executives said why they did not implement Face ID on the MacBook Pro despite the hack, because Touch ID provides a better experience:
Tom Boger, Apple’s VP of Mac and iPad product marketing, said in the interview that “Touch ID is more convenient on a laptop since your hands are already on the keyboard.”
As for its price point, Dylan expects this iMac Pro to start at over $ 2,000. If it’s the price, it looks like it’s a replacement for the 27-inch Intel iMac rather than a brand new iMac Pro, which was discontinued a few months ago. Although the doctor says that “the current internal naming candidate for this device is ‘iMac Pro’.”
As this iMac is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2022, which is when people expect a redesigned MacBook Air and a 27-inch iMac replacement, we expect more rumors over the coming month. You can find Dylan’s thread about everything he says comes with this new iMac Pro below.
