More than two years have passed since the introduction of the current generation of the 24-inch Apple iMac in May 2021 (May 1400); Now a new report from the Japanese blog Mc Otakararefers to the possibly imminent introduction of its updated model equipped with a newer M2 and M2 Pro processor, Thunderbolt 4 ports, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.
The confusing point is the contradiction of McOtakara’s claims with previous reports Mark German He is a reporter and analyst for Bloomberg magazine; Garmin has previously mentioned many times that the new iMac with the M3 chip will be released in late 2023 or early 2024.
On the other hand, until now, no other source except Mac Otakara has fueled the possibility of equipping the new generation of iMac with M2 and M2 Pro chips; So either this report is not true or Apple has new plans in mind. At the moment, we do not know how much the price of Apple’s new iMac will differ from the price of the 24-inch All-in-One iMac M1.
According to the Japanese blog, the delay in sending some customized models of the current 24-inch iMac generation in the Apple online store in the United States could be a sign that this introduction is close; Of course, it should be noted that this delay is not a new thing and the claims of this website cannot be approved for this reason alone.
Earlier, Ming Chi Ku, the prominent analyst of Apple products considered it unlikely that the new MacBook with M3 chip will be released by the end of this year; However, he did not rule out the possibility of introducing a new iMac.
Since there is no introduction event in the calendar of Cupertinos in October, if the new iMac is going to be introduced, it will probably take place in the form of an online event on the company’s website.
Finally, it must be said that until this moment there is no detailed information about the specifications and release date of the next 24-inch iMac, and Apple fans should wait for official news from reliable sources. Until then, the mill wheel of conflicting claims about this product will continue to turn.
