According to a recent report by Display Supply Chain Consultants’ CEO Ross Young, he claims that in 2022, Apple is expected to launch a 27-inch iMac Pro powered by the Apple Silicon. Now, according to a paywalled article from DigiTimes shared by Young on Twitter, it looks like Apple’s suppliers are already shipping out components.
The report claims that suppliers have started to ship out a small volume of shipments, but we expect that those shipments will start to ramp up once production goes into full swing as we get closer to the launch and release of the computer.

According to the rumors, Apple is expected to name the 27-inch iMac as the iMac Pro, despite them discontinuing the previous iMac Pro model that was powered by Intel. It’s an interesting naming choice, but we have to wonder if this also means that it will come with the iMac Pro price tag or if it will be similar to the previous Intel 27-inch iMac.
There are rumors suggesting that Apple will also be using mini LED display panels for the iMac Pro with a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate, and that it could also be using Apple’s newer M1 Pro/Max chipsets that made its debut with the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros.
