Apple is gearing up for a highly-anticipated product launch at the end of this month, with rumors circulating about the release of a refreshed 24-inch iMac. According to Bloomberg’s well-known tech reporter, Mark Gurman, who often provides accurate insights into Apple’s plans, the upcoming event will primarily focus on Mac-related updates.
So why all the buzz around the 24-inch iMac? Well, it’s no secret that Apple users have been eagerly awaiting a hardware update for this model. Interestingly, the current 24-inch iMac is the only Mac in the market that still utilizes the M1 chip. However, rumors are swirling that the newest version will feature the much-anticipated M3 chip instead of the M2.
Another clue pointing to an imminent announcement is the decreasing availability of the iMac, the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro at Apple retail stores. This scarcity strongly suggests that something big is about to happen regarding these machines.
Gurman speculates that Apple could make its grand reveal on either October 30 or 31, with the highly anticipated earnings call scheduled for November 2. Although the new Macs are not anticipated to undergo major transformations aside from the upgraded processors, sources suggest that there might be some minor improvements to their displays.
While the upcoming event is expected to focus on the 24-inch iMac and other Mac devices, reports indicate that Apple enthusiasts may have to wait until early 2024 for the launch of next-generation MacBook Air models featuring the M3 chips. Furthermore, there are rumors swirling about a larger “pro” version of the iMac with a 32-inch display and a brand-new design, expected to hit the market in late 2024 or 2025.
Moreover, the possibility of Mac redesigns, possibly featuring touchscreens, is a hot topic among industry insiders. While these changes might not be implemented immediately, they are seen as inevitable developments for the future.
With so much excitement surrounding Apple’s upcoming product launch, the tech world is eagerly awaiting an official announcement from the tech giant. As October draws to a close, all eyes will be on Apple as they unveil their latest creations and set the stage for the future of Mac. Stay tuned for more updates on Guam News Factor.
