Apple is all set to launch the 24 inch iMac with Apple Silicon chip. This news comes in after reports suggest that Apple has slowed down the production of the current 21.5 inch iMac lineup. Usually when there is a slowdown in production of a current device, it indicates the launch of a more powerful next device.
Some 21.5 inch iMacs are no longer available to buy, which means that there is an upgrade coming soon. Supply chain sources confirmed to AppleInsider that the production of the 512GB and 1TB SSD configurations of the iMac 4K has stopped completely. The last time Apple refreshed the 21.5 inch was in 2019.
As Bloomberg said:
“Apple is working on successors to the M1 with up to 20 CPU cores, made up of 16 high performance and 4-efficiency cores. In 2021, the company is expected to roll out ARM versions of the higher-end MacBook Pro, “both entry-level and high-end iMac desktops.”
Not only would the new iMac feature the Apple Silicon chip, but it will also feature a redesign. A new iMac with the M series chip is also supposedly on the way.
