The latest beta of macOS Big Sur seems to point to two new Apple silicon iMacs.
As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple released macOS Big Sur 11.3 beta 5 to developers and public beta users today and, within the code, Apple makes reference to new models of the iMac. According to the code, it appears that both the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac will be updated this year.
As Apple previously announced, the new versions of the iMac will contain Apple silicon chips, something that seems to have been confirmed by at least one developer last week.
