Apple’s 2021 iMac will not only have a bold new look, but will also have much more property on the screen, according to a leak with a strong track record.
“The screen of iMac is very large, larger than the largest,” L0vetodream wrote on Twitter (translated). Given that Apple’s largest iMac seller is built around a 27-inch screen, it looks like users will be able to enjoy more real estate.
Given that the current iMac has quite thick frames and a significant ‘chin’, it is quite possible that Apple can expand the screen size without increasing the footprint of the device itself. This is something Apple has done before, albeit with a different type of hardware: the iPhone 1
Given that we’ve heard that the 2021 iMac will draw design inspiration from the Apple Pro Display XDR with its flat back and reduced borders, it’s entirely possible that the iMac L0vetodream refers to comes with the same 32-inch dimensions.
If it sounds too much, it sounds like Apple will keep the smaller iMac, although rumor has it that it will also grow in size. With the same fittings and chin savings as the larger iMac, it has been suggested that the smaller model will grow from 21.5 inches to around 24 inches.
In addition to changing design and dimensions, it has also been reported that the new iMacs will come in a variety of colors, if you want to make your workspace a little more playful.
Of course, the inside of an iMac really counts, and rumor has it that Apple’s all-in-one desktop can follow last year’s MacBook Pro M1, MacBook Air M1 and Mac mini M1 in the ditch Intel for Silicon.
The new Macs have proven to be good players with low energy consumption. This will likely be improved in an iMac, with Apple reportedly experimenting with its own silicon “with as many as 32 high-performance cores” – a big step up from the eight found in the current M1 chip.
Last month, a crash report appeared to confirm that Apple was at least testing its own chips in iMac hardware, although of course it is possible that the company will also sell Intel configurations for purists who need maximum software compatibility.
While it is said that Apple is planning an event for this month, it is not clear if the iMac will look like. Instead, the focus is apparently set on the 2021 iPad Pro and AirTags.
