Apple could be preparing to release new products including a new iMac as early as the second half of this year, according to Bloomberg’s columnist Mark Gurman.
There is speculation that two new iMac models are currently in “a late stage,” and approaching manufacturing tests.
“Apple Inc.’s next iMac desktop is at an advanced stage of development called engineering validation testing, or EVT, and the company is conducting production tests of the machine,” says Gurman.
The 24-inch 2023 iMacs will likely boast many improvements. To begin with, they will include the next-generation M3 system-on-a-chip. This could significantly improve power efficiency and performance.
Additionally, the attachment of the iMac stand will be constructed using a new-and-improved manufacturing process. Finally, certain internal components have reportedly been redesigned by Apple.
Besides the 24-inch 2023 iMac, it is also speculated that Apple may launch a 15-inch version of the Macbook Air and the Apple Silicone Mac Pro. These developments could be available in spring or summer, Gurman predicts, but details on technological and software developments are still unknown.
