Special April 1 report: Apple to introduce a 55-inch, 12K iMac Pro Plus

Those who thought Apple has forgotten its pro users may rethink their position. Sources familiar with the matter — who asked not to be named — told Apple World Today that the Cupertino, California-based company will unveil the iMac Pro Plus at June’s Worldwide Developer Conference.

Some users — such as Yours Truly — hoped Apple would unveil a 31.5-inch iMac. However, the company is kicking it up a notch with a 55-inch OLED display equipped with 10x stereo, front-facing speakers (a subwoofer is optional). Apple is also skipping 8K and jumping directly to 12K. The iMac Pro Plus will boast 11520×2160 resolution — pixel-wise, the above setup is equivalent to 12 1920×1080 displays, with a total of 24,883,200 pixels.

With its extra big display, Apple has plenty of room for lots connectivity options. The iMac Pro Plus will sport four USB-C ports, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, four FireWire 800 ports, a Lightning port, four HDMI slots, and an SD Card Slot. It will also include two 2TB solid state drives.

The base model starts at $15,000. Since that’s out of the price range of most users, Apple will also offer the iMac mini with a 13-inch display, four USB-C ports and a 500GB solid state price with pricing starting at $1,000.
