Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is reportedly not planning to launch a new 24-inch iMac until late 2023. The 24-inch iMac was launched by the company in May 2021 but is yet to receive any major updates to its specifications.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple will skip updating the iMac with the M2 chip and instead wait to release a model with the M3 chip, which has yet to be announced.
“I haven’t seen anything to indicate that there will be a new iMac until the M3 chip generation, which won’t come until later this year or next year.” So if you want to stick with the iMac, you just have to be agile. Have to sit down,” Gurman wrote in his newsletter.
MacRumors reports that Apple’s M3 chip is expected to be manufactured based on TSMC’s latest 3nm process, which offers additional performance and power efficiency improvements. According to the report, the M3 chip is expected to be used in a new MacBook Air to be launched by the second half of 2023, and possibly in future versions of the 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini. By comparison, the M2 chip is built on TSMC’s second-generation 5nm process.
In related news, Apple has also delayed its 27-inch outdoor display with Mini-LED backlighting, which was expected to launch in the first quarter of this year. The display is expected to support ProMotion, which should allow up to 120Hz refresh rate.
Industry analyst Ross Young hasn’t seen any signs that the display is entering mass production, which indicates that a launch isn’t going to happen. MacRumors reports that it appears that the launch date for the display has been postponed multiple times. He first estimated a launch around June 2022, then October 2022, and most recently the first quarter of 2023.
