What you need to know
- A new report has iMac, iPad Air, and iPad mini refreshes coming in the second half of 2020.
- We are already expecting a new iMac at WWDC on June 22.
- Could both rumors be right?.
Apple is rumored to be announcing a new iMac during its WWDC opening keynote on June 22, but a new DigiTimes report might throw shade on that. Or it might not. Either way, it reckons iMac, iPad Air, and iPad mini refreshes are coming in the second half of this year.
Starting with the iPad Air and iPad mini, the report notes that both new tablets will be larger than previous models.
In terms of the new iMac, we've been expecting one to be announced at WWDC. But that could still happen. The second half of 2020 is just a week or so after the WWDC kick-off, after all. It's more than possible that we could see both reports be accurate here.
As MacRumors notes, there's already some confusion over whether the 10.8-inch iPad will carry the iPad or iPad Air branding. DigiTimes says the iPad Air will see an increase from the normal 10.2-inch screen – which is incorrect because it's already a 10.5-inch part.
But you know what is 10.2-inch? Yep, the normal iPad.
