Report: Apple has no plans to release a new 27-inch iMac
What you need to know
- A new report claims that Apple has no plans to release a new 27-inch iMac.
- The report also calls into question the return of the iMac Pro.
- It appears that the Mac Studio and Mac Pro will be Apple's sole "Pro" desktop Macs.
After Apple announced the new Mac Studio, many were wondering if Apple will ever bring an update to the 27-inch iMac or a return of the iMac Pro. A new report makes all of that seem less likely.
According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple has no plans to release a "larger-screen iMac in the near future." If true, this means that those wishing for a new 27-inch iMac powered by Apple silicon will be disappointed.
The report goes on to say that no iMac will receive Apple's higher-end chips. This could not only mean that the regular iMac will go without such chips, but also calls into question any return of an iMac Pro.
If the report holds true, it would mean that the Mac Studio and Mac Pro are Apple's new pro-level desktop machines with the Mac mini and 24-inch iMac as the company's consumer-level machines.
