Today, code found within a leaked version of iOS 14 seems to confirm this new design. Concept designer iFinder posted on Twitter with an image of an iMac icon that resembles more of an iPad Pro with a stand than Apple's current iMac design.
iFinder produced a render of what the new design could look like and, if true, is a huge step up from the current design of the iMac.

Apple is rumored to be announcing a new iMac at WWDC next week. It is unclear if that iMac could be the redesigned, iPad Pro inspired machine, or if is something else. It is also unclear if this new design would be used across all of Apple's iMacs or for the company's more pro-focused iMac Pro. We'll have to wait until next week to find out for sure.
