Apple’s plans for a November and December lunch of its redesigned 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac lines are reportedly still on track.
Our sources say that Apple is already shipping new 21.5-inch iMacs to its distribution hubs across the United States and several other countries across the world. These sources also expect the 21.5-inch computers to be available to order from Apple’s online store by the end of this month. It is also likely that the new models will reach Apple’s physical retail stores by the end of November.
This refutes an earlier report from French site MacBidouille claiming that the launches of both the new 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs would be delayed until 2013.
The 27-inch version looks to still be launching in December, but 9to5Mac’s sources say there is a high chance that they will be available to order from Apple’s online store around the same time as the 21.5-inch models.
9to5Mac’s sources do say however, that the new models will be in relatively short supply at launch, mostly outside of the U.S. During Apple’s latest earnings call, CEO Tim Cook had noted that the iMac would experience significant shortages.
