Numerous tech reports have suggested that Apple is set to launch its iMac Pro with its in-house chips, in 2022.
As per fresh reports, Apple might roll out a new line-up of iMac in the first half of next year with the ‘Pro’name attached to it. Supposedly, these new iMac Pros would sport the recently released Apple silicon and possibly Apple’s new design language.
According to the rumors, the iMac Pro will be powered by the M1 Pro and M1 Max SoCs that Apple launched earlier this month. There might be an additional configuration than what we saw on the new MacBook Pros, but that is uncertain so far. The base model of the iMac Pro will feature 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, which can be upgraded to a much more capable configuration for professionals.
Further details have also pointed that the black bezels, which have been discontinued on the new iMac with M1 chip, will reappear on the iMac Pro. However, the design for the ‘Pro’ desktops will be altered to make it look similar to the new 24-inch iMac and Pro Display XDR. It would mean sharp edges and industrial design. It is not clear whether the new colours from iMac will be brought over to the Pro version of the computer too.
The new iMac Pro will also get a HDMI slot, a SD card reader and USB Type-C ports. The Apple-silicon-equipped iMac Pro will replace the existing 27-inch version of the desktop computer.
