Apple is widely expected to release a redesigned iMac powered by Apple Silicon sometime this year. Now, developer Dennis Oberhoff has discovered an unreleased Apple Silicon-based iMac in an Xcode crash log for his Mac app DaftCloud.
In addition to sharing the Xcode crash log on Twitter, Oberhoff also shared the Xcode crash log with 9to5Mac, which took a closer look at the log and confirmed that it looks legitimate.

DaftCloud is a third-party macOS desktop music sharing app for use with SoundCloud. The log entry could have come from an Apple engineer that used the app on an Apple Silicon iMac prototype. The log indicates that the iMac is running macOS 11.2.1, released in early February, but no further details can be discerned.
Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman earlier this year reported that a revamped iMac, powered by Apple silicon will be released later in 2021. Gurman expects the new iMac’s design to be inspired by Apple’s high-end Pro Display XDR, boasting slimmer bezels around the display, no metal chin on the bottom, and a flat back.
