Tomorrow, Tuesday, a new Apple Event will be broadcast in which the Cupertino company will present new devices. There are some like the 3rd generation iPhone SE that have been leaked ahead of time. However, the rest are a real mystery. The iMac Pro, which would be the replacement for the current 27-inch iMac, with a new design and Apple Silicon, entered the pools. However, a last minute prediction points to the opposite.
Ming-Chi Kuo rules out the iMac Pro until 2023
Only the large iMac and Mac Pro remain to make the leap from Intel processors to Apple’s own chips. For the second one we already knew that it would not be an early launch and that even in this 2022 it was difficult to imagine it. However, the larger iMac did make sense this year and more so after learning about the powerful M1 Pro and M1 Max chips at the end of last year.
The name of Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities and with sources close to the supply chain, probably already rings a bell. Well, the Asian has published a tweet in the last hours in which he has made a prediction of Apple’s “desktop devices”, mentioning that both computers will be launched in 2023.
Therefore, if this information is true, another year would pass in which the largest iMac still does not offer a version with Apple’s ARM chips. This does not mean that the 24-inch iMac can not be renewed with an M2 chip, since this is still in the pools for tomorrow. However, the most demanding will not see their wishes satisfied. Although, obviously, Kuo’s information is not official and it would not be the first time that he has not been right with a prediction.
The new monitor will be ready for this year
A new Apple display could be unveiled tomorrow. It has been known for months that the company was carrying out two developments, having on the one hand a second version of the Pro Display XDR and on the other an external monitor more restrained in price and performance. Well, Ming-Chi Kuo stated in the same tweet that, along with an improved Mac mini, we would also see that screen this year.
In fact, Kuo has not been the only one to make this forecast. Also well-known analyst Mark Gurman has released a new report in which, according to his sources, Apple finished development months ago of this new monitor and could present it tomorrow. According to both leakers, this would mount a 27-inch panel that, although it has a good resolution, will not have miniLED technology as expected for the highest range.
Be that as it may, there is less left to get out of doubt. That none of this is launched tomorrow does not mean that it will not be possible to see it in 2022. However, also according to the slogan of the event (“Peek performance”), it is expected that we will see news in relation to Macs.
