The tech giant announced the iMac Pro back in 2017 and was touted as the most powerful Mac ever. It offers features such as a 5K display, Intel Xeon processor, AMD Vega graphics, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and a custom Apple T2 chip for encrypted keys. Undoubtedly, the iMac Pro will always be known as a niche computer, targeted to pro consumers and graphic designers.
As per rumours, Apple will launch a new lineup of iMacs this year. A reliable Apple supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously revealed that the US based tech giant has plans to bring all-new iMacs including a refreshed model of iMac Pro.
Reports suggest that the iMac Pro set to launch later this year could be powered by Apple’s own silicon chipset. That being the case, the discontinuation of the current iMac Pro lineup is justified. While the tech giant is yet to officially confirm the launch of the new iMac, reports suggest that Apple could release the new iMacs as soon as March this year, probably at its upcoming Spring event.
As per another recent leak by YouTuber Jon Prosser, the next-generation iMac will sport thinner bezels, and a flat back similar to the Pro Display XDR.
