Apple is expected to begin production of two new iMacs in May for an official launch in the second half of the year, according to DigiTimes, quoting unnamed “sources from Taiwan-based supply chain makers,” who add that a server-grade iMac for the high-end sector is also in the works.
Apple currently has a 21.5-inch and a 27-inch iMac available in the market and the new products are expected to be the upgrades of the two models and are expected to hit the market in the third quarter to catch up with the year-end holiday season the article adds.
DigiTimes says the server-grade iMac is expected to feature Intel's Xeon E3-1285 v6 processor, 16-64GB ECC RAM, up to 2TB NVMe SSD and a latest discrete graphics card. However, this model probably won’t be available until the end of the year, the article adds.
Chances that this rumor is true — in the opinion of the Sellers Research Group (that’s me) — 99%. And you can expect to see a Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar to go along with the all-in-one update.
