Bloomberg reports that Apple won’t introduce a new 24-inch iMac until at least late 2023. He reinforced his belief that Apple will wait to offer a model with the M3 chip, which has yet to be revealed, rather than updating the iMac with the M2 chip in his newsletter today.
According to Bloomberg, a new iMac won’t be released until the M3 chip generation, which isn’t expected to happen until the end of this year or the following year. So you’ll have to wait to continue with the iMac.
Apple’s M3 chip is anticipated to be produced using the most recent 3nm process from TSMC, offering improved performance and power usage. Future iterations of the 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini may employ the M3 chip. A new MacBook Air is also anticipated to debut by the second half of 2023. The M2 chip, in contrast, is constructed using TSMC’s second-generation 5nm technology.
With the M1 chip and a new, ultra-thin design that came in seven colors—green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver—Apple last upgraded the iMac in April 2021. As the 27-inch Intel-based iMac and the iMac Pro were discontinued within the last two years, it is now the only new iMac available.
