For those who have been waiting for Apple to refresh its 27-inch iMac with the Apple Silicon chipset, you could be in luck because according to analyst Ross Young, he claims that the computer is expected to be launched this coming summer, which coincidentally enough is also when WWDC is expected to take place.
We have heard rumors that Apple is planning on launching the computer in 2022, and now Young’s tweet gives us an indication of when that might take place. Young had actually previously tweeted that the computer could launch in the summer, and now his latest tweet suggests that it could actually take place in June.
MiniLED iMac Pro could launch in June. Some observers said no MiniLEDs, but we hear around 1000 zones and over 4000 miniLEDs.

For those who are hearing about this for the first time, Apple is rumored to be calling this iMac refresh the iMac Pro. Given that the company had previously discontinued the iMac Pro, the naming convention does sound a little weird and confusing, but we’ll have to wait for the official announcement to get a better idea of where Apple is headed with this.
The computer will be powered by an Apple Silicon chipset, but whether it will be the M2 or a variant of the M1 remains to be seen, but apparently one of its selling points would be the use of the mini LED display, but it is unclear if it could get the ProMotion 120Hz feature or if it will be your standard 60Hz.
