Bloomberg: Apple is working on two Mac Pros and first new iMac design since 2012

Apple will spend the next two years switching to proprietary arm chips for its Mac products. A system-on-a-chip from its own M-series isn’t all the purported new iMac has to offer, that says Bloomberg. A complete redesign must also be in the offing.

The design of the current iMacs has been used since 2012, including the most recent version from August. The Wallstreet newspaper writes that the thick ‘chin’ that we know of the existing models will disappear, instead the screen will rather have the appearance of the Pro Display XDR. That screen has relatively thin edges of equal size on all four sides. There has been news in the corridors for some time about a new design, in which future iMacs are compared to the iPad Pro.

The round back would also have been replaced by a flat design à la Pro Display XDR. This means that the device must be able to be thinner, which may be due to the relatively low power consumption of the M1soc. It is not clear whether the M1 will also be the source of all computing power in these products, there have been rumors for some time about an Apple chip with twelve CPU cores. Bloomberg writes that two new iMacs should be introduced internally with the code names J456 and J457. They have to replace the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs respectively, the size is not yet known.

Also, there should not be one successor for the Mac Pro desktop, but two. One should be a ‘relatively standard update’ to the existing Mac Pro, which was announced along with the Pro Display in the summer of 2019. It also uses an Intel processor. The second product will get an Apple processor and would be more than half the size. Bloomberg thinks the design was inspired by the Power Mac G4 Cube. A cheaper external monitor with less pro features would also be in development.
