Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Bloomberg: New iMac with Pro Display XDR design coming this year, cheaper external display also planned - 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Following new details on the 2021 MacBook Pro refresh, Bloomberg now reports that Apple is also planning to release its first redesign of the iMac since 2012 later this year, as well as a lower-priced external monitor. There is also a new Mac Pro lineup in the works, the report says.
Bloomberg describes the new iMac as having smaller bezels with a design similar to the Pro Display XDR. This will include removing the “chin area” from the bottom, as well as a flat back rather than the current curved design. Apple is reportedly planning to versions to replace the existing 21.5 and 27-inch models “later this year.”
The new models will slim down the thick black borders around the screen and do away with the sizable metal chin area in favor of a design similar to Apple’s Pro Display XDR monitor. These iMacs will have a flat back, moving away from the curved rear of the current iMac. Apple is planning to launch two versions — codenamed J456 and J457 — to replace the existing 21.5-inch and 27-inch models later this year, the people said, asking not to be identified because the products are not yet announced.
“The iMac redesign will be one of the biggest visual updates to any Apple product this year,” the report says while citing people familiar with Apple’s roadmap.
Past reports have indicated that Apple is developing a 24-inch iMac, which would theoretically serve as a replacement to the 21.5-inch model. Bloomberg doesn’t specifically mention the screen sizes the new iMac design, instead only saying that there will be two versions to “replace” the existing 21.5-inch and 27-inch options.
