He says the form factor redesign will be akin to the Pro Display XDR with some iPad-ish touches, as well. The colors (silver, space space, green, sky blue, and rose gold ) are designed to capitalize on the original iMac, which was offered in the “flavors” of tangerine, lime, strawberry, blueberry, and grape.
Prosser says he doesn’t know exactly what ports will appear on the back of the new all-in-one. He adds that the upcoming Mac Pro will be akin to a “stacked” Mac mini or the old G4 Cube.
But back to the iMac. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says this a major update is indeed planned for this year and will be “one of the biggest visual updates to any Apple product this year.”
Quoting unnamed “people familiar with the plans,” he says the new models will slim down the thick black borders around the screen and do away with the metal chin area in favor of a design similar to Apple’s Pro Display XDR monitor. They’ll have a flat back, moving away from the curved rear of the current all-in-one. Gurman doesn’t say when the revamped all-in-ones will ship, but it will likely be in the second half of the year. And they’ll sport the successor to Apple’s M1 chip.
