The new Apple Pencil will not be the only device that the company announces this October. At least that’s what Mak Gurman suggests. Bloombergwho has revealed in his weekly news bulletin that Apple plans to announce a new Mac before the end of the month; including, finally, a new iMac.
According to Gurman, the company could announce new Macs on October 30 or 31. One of them would be the update of the 24-inch iMac that Apple presented in 2021. Although Apple has not confirmed anything in this regard, the aforementioned journalist affirms that there is a “clear signal” that reveals this imminent launch; the impossibility of purchasing some configurations of some Macs, where shipments of these are delayed until November.
This new 24 iMac could arrive with a new M3 chip, which would be manufactured in a 3-nanometer silicon process, which would make it more efficient and efficient than its predecessor, the M2 chip. Taking into account that the current Mac with a 24-inch screen has an M1 chip, we could see a noticeable jump in performance with this new version.
At the moment, there are no details about its design, but everything indicates that it will maintain the same appearance as the 2021 model. A similar screen in terms of size and features is also expected.
The 24-inch iMac may also not be the only Mac that Apple will update on October 30 or 31. We could also see two new 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros with new M3 Pro and M3 Max Chips.
Apple is also working on an iMac Pro: it will be the Mac with the largest screen in its history
Previously, Gurman also revealed that the company had yet to announce a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M3 chip that would renew the current model with M2, as well as a new MacBook Air, also 13 inches, with an M3 to give it more power than the current version. The Bloomberg journalist, however, now underlines that these Macs could be announced in 2024.
In parallel, Mark Gurman states that Apple still plans to announce an iMac Pro, a highly rumored device in 2022 that ultimately did not see the light of day. He highlights that the company never canceled the development of this teamand assures that it will arrive at the end of 2024 or 2025.
Expect the iMac Pro to include a 32 inch screen, making this the largest Mac in the company’s history. It is not clear, however, what processor it will include, but it is likely that it will integrate an M3 Pro and M3 Max chip, which could be announced throughout 2024. Or, an M3 Ultra; processor until now destined for the Mac Studio and Mac Pro.
