It was initially rumored this year that Apple could be planning on launching a couple of new and more powerful Macs. This included a successor to the Intel-based 27-inch iMac and also the Mac Pro. However, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo later claimed that those computers have been pushed back to 2023.
Now according to a new report from 9to5Mac, it seems that Apple might not be refreshing the 27-inch iMac anytime soon. The report cites their sources who has told them that Apple apparently does not have plans for a larger screen iMac, at least not in the near future. These are the same sources who tipped the publication to the Mac Studio and Studio Display, both of which were ultimately proven to be true.
It is a bit of a shame that the 27-inch iMac will no longer be happening or the rumored iMac Pro. This means that those who want an iMac will have to get the 24-inch model that was introduced last year, or they will have to buy the Studio Display which has a 27-inch 5K display and pair it with either the Mac mini or the Mac Studio, although the latter is probably closer in performance to the Intel model compared to the Mac mini.
We’re not sure why Apple has decided to call it a day on the 27-inch model, but if you were hoping to get your hands on one, don’t hold your breath for it just yet.
