Though fresh possibilities of the much-awaited 2021 might have come mixed with the shadow of 2020 now synonymous with the pandemic, it could well mean a fresh renewal for one of the first modern-day computers to be in use today, the Macintosh. The iMac, to be specific.
While Apple is still to officially launch the news and confirm the supposed leak, a word that the tech pioneer is all set to revamp its iMac is making the rounds on social media, courtesy of Twitter. If this piece of information rings true, it would be close to a decade since the iMac got its last transformation in 2012.
An iMac that is likely to feature Apple’s favoured ARM-based M1 chip found on the MacBook Air, Mini and Pro. A digital display that might be expected to outdo 4K. A design sleeker and classier than the Pro Display XDR along with a screen bigger than its current largest of 27 inches could well be on the cards, translating to a 32-inch display. What else it holds in store is something difficult to predict until Apple lets loose its horses. But many-a-creative anticipating this new development explains why the rumour seems to have caught fire in the viral arena.
How would this renewed member of the Apple family be priced is something to watch, too, especially considering recent economic situations. If and to what extent it plays a role in how Apple Inc. goes about the tag would well be under the scanner alongside the technological upgrades.
