Apple has sent out invites to their event which is taking place this Thursday, on the 27th of October in which they are expected to unveil new MacBooks. So the question is since this will be more or less a computer event for Apple, does that mean that new Apple’s desktops will also be announced?

The bad news is that it seems that won’t be happening. In a recently released investor’s note by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he has revealed that if you were hoping for a new iMac or if you’re looking forward to the new external standalone 5K displays, you’d probably have to wait until 2017 as apparently those aren’t ready yet.

This is despite a previous report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman who suggested that new desktops and a standalone display could be arriving this year, and the fact that Best Buy recently had a listing for a 27-inch iMac with Intel’s new Kaby Lake processor. However it is possible that maybe there could have been a change of plans, hence the discrepancy in reports.

An alternative is that Apple could simply release the new iMacs in their online store without much fanfare, so we’ll have to keep an eye out for that. In any case take it with a grain of salt, but the 27th is coming up pretty soon so do check back with us this coming Thursday for all the updates.
