Well according to analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, customers looking forward to a Haswell powered iMac can expect Apple to update their computers sometime in June or July. According to Kuo, he expects to see shipments of the current-generation iMac to fall to around 650,000 units from 1.75 million units. The drop is apparently attributed to what he refers to as “consumer slow season”, and the fact that Apple could be ramping down production of the current-gen iMac computers in favor of concentrating on the newer models with Intel’s Haswell chipset inside.

Apart from this recent observation, there has not really been much to go on regarding Apple’s plans for the iMac, although considering that since this will probably be mostly a processor upgrade and other hardware upgrades, it is possible that this update could be done quietly through the Apple store rather than a formal announcement at WWDC. However since WWDC is only a few hours away, we guess we won’t have to wait too long to see if Apple will be announcing an upgraded iMac, so check back with us later for the details!
