In 2014, Apple made made the Mac Retina and took it to 5K. In 2016, Apple added a 4K version and wide-gamut color. In 2016... Apple didn't ship a new iMac. That means the next major update will likely be in 2017. So, what do you want to see in it?

  • USB C / Thunderbolt 3 ports.
  • Legacy USB-A, Thunderbolt 2, and SD card ports.
  • Kaby Lake processors.
  • Graphics cards capable of supporting harder-core gaming and VR.
  • Target display mode (to work as external monitors of MacBooks).
  • Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar and Touch ID.
  • Space gray or matte black options.
  • Apple Pencil support.
  • Multitouch support.
  • Reclining display.
  • More cores!

Making macOS touch-friendly probably isn't something Apple's going to devote time and engineering resources too, not when they already have iOS. But what could Apple do to increase functionality and keep the iMac fresh and relevant in modern, multitouch world? Is Apple Pencil support the way to go, because it can easily hit even tiny mouse-pointer targets? Or is Touch Bar ready for the desk top?

The above are only a few ideas, what are yours?
