Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman has published the latest edition of his Power On newsletter and says that Apple is still working on a “Pro” iMac with a larger display and more powerful chip.
Gurman indicated that Apple is working on at least two iMac models, likely powered by the “M3” series of chips. Gurman says that the Cupertino firm will likely debut an updated 24-inch iMac featuring the standard M3 chip in 2023 and is continuing to develope a high-end iMac model:
I also still believe that Apple is working on a larger-screened iMac aimed at the professional market. I’d imagine this will use a variation of the M3 chip, likely an M3 Pro and M3 Max. That would match the chips inside of the MacBook Pro. I don’t think the combination of a Mac Studio or Mac mini plus an Apple Studio Display cuts it for many pro users who want more screen real estate.
A single iMac model (24-inch M1 model) is currently available, as Apple discontinued the iMac Pro back in March 2021, and in March 2022, it discontinued the 27-inch Intel-based version of the iMac,
Gurman says he expects an updated 24-inch iMac to be among the first M3 series of Macs, which will include an updated 13-inch MacBook Air, an all-new 15-inch MacBook Air, and possibly a new 12-inch notebook that is “still in early development.”
