2023 will be an important year for Apple computers. The Cupertino firm is preparing to renew a large part of its catalogue, with new iMac, Mac Pro and MacBook Air. And, perhaps even more relevant, with the jump to 3 nanometers in its next M3 chip.

This is revealed by Mark Gurman in Bloomberg this Sunday, noting that several of these machines will arrive between spring and summer.

With the iMac M1 having been released in April 2021, The renewal of this computer is one that many have been waiting for for a long time. Something that is accentuated if we take into account that several of the laptops already have different updates to that chip, and that others have directly made the leap to the M2 generation.

The colorful desktop machine is also the only all-in-one that the technology company sells, after discontinuing the 27-inch iMac. Fortunately, the aforementioned journalist assures that the new iMac is in “an advanced state of development.” He is aiming for a release before the end of the year, but after the summer.

The great novelty of this iMac, which will retain its 24″ size, will be its M3 chip. The third generation of proprietary Apple processors will mean a significant increase in the efficiency of this device, going for the first time to 3 nanometers. And, yes, everything indicates that it will maintain the same color palette that we currently find.

In addition to the new iMac M3, this is expected to be the year in which Cupertino unveils its first Mac Pro with a proprietary chip. The computer for the professional segment, released in 2019, currently uses Intel Xeon W chips. It is known, however, that making the transition effective and abandoning the use of competitive chips has been one of the company’s objectives in recent years.
