The base model of the iMac Pro will likely feature 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage which can be upgraded to a much more capable configuration for professionals. Much like the recently launched MacBook Pros, the new iMac Pro could get an HDMI slot, an SD card reader, and USB Type-C ports. Further, the ethernet port will be placed on the power brick, something we saw on the M1-powered iMac launched earlier this year. Dylan adds that Face ID has been tested on the 2022 iMac Pro.

As for the design, the iMac Pro is said to have black bezels that were ditched on the new iMac with an M1 chip. The leaker tips that the design of the Mac Pro could be more in align with the new 24-inch iMac and Pro Display XDR which means we might witness sharp edges and industrial design. Dylan indicates that the upcoming desktop would have a min-LED panel with ProMotion tech like the one similar to the recent Apple launches. As for the price, the leaker notes that the 2022 Apple iMac could cost starting from $2,000 or more. As for the debut, tipster Ross Young suggested that the all-in-one PC could launch in the first half of 2022, however, Dylan notes that there is a possibility of delay considering chip shortage and other issues.
