Apple has been rumored for months to be readying a new iMac Pro sporting a mini-LED display. Now, analyst Ross Young said today that the new larger-screened iMac Pro could debut as soon as June. If the June estimate is accurate, the new all-in-one Mac could be unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference.
While many other rumors have told us to expect a spring launch for the new iMac, Young said in January that he expects a “summer” launch. Young claimed that panel shipments were expected to begin in June and that a launch could follow in August or September, but he appears to have moved that timeline up a few months.
MiniLED iMac Pro could launch in June. Some observers said no MiniLEDs, but we hear around 1000 zones and over 4000 miniLEDs.

Young says he expects the new iMac to have “around 1000 zones” and “over 4000 miniLEDs.” It will feature a mini-LED backlight. The new 27-inch iMac will be sold as a higher-end alternative to the 24-inch iMac. The new iMac is expected to feature a redesigned look and will be powered by the M1 Pro/M1 Max chips used in 2021 MacBook Pro models.
