A new rumor has appeared today on Twitter about the launch of the new range of iMacs Large size. It suggests that the presentation date of said desktop Apple Silicon that was scheduled for the end of this year, is going to be delayed until spring 2022.
And the curious thing about this delay is that it is not due to technical issues or delays in production timing. It is simply not to coincide with the release of the two new MacBook Pros planned for later this year. Matter of marketing commercial. What a fabric.
The well-known Apple news leaker Dylandkt has published in his account Twitter that Apple’s “high-end iMac” is not expected to launch in Q4 2021 alongside the “M1X Macs«, A reference to the redesigned MacBook Pro models. The reason is because “Apple just doesn’t want its devices to compete for attention and launch delays.”
Delayed so as not to overlap with the launch of the MacBook Pro
In previous claims, Dylandkt has been adamant that an Apple “M1X” silicon processor is intended for the new high-end “Pro” Macs, including upcoming MacBook Pro models and a larger, more powerful iMac. Apple is expected to launch the models 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro sometime between September and November.
It is known that Apple is still developing a larger version of the iMac, but the project was halted to launch the model. 24-inch iMac at the beginning of this year. If the larger version of the iMac uses an M1X or M2X chip, it will be a more powerful version of the M1 chip that mounts the 24-inch iMac. The 27-inch Intel models that remain in Apple’s catalog were launched in August 2020, indicating that they are nearing the end of their marketing cycle.
A new, larger iMac will likely embrace the aesthetic changes that debuted in the latest 24-inch model, a slimmer overall design, studio-quality microphones, and of course, ARM processors more powerful Apple that replace the current Intel. So we will see if Dylandkt is right or not.
