Apple Refresh: iMac and MacBook
Apple’s Mac portfolio has been due for an overhaul, and the good news is that famous analyst Mark Gurman suggests that new MacBooks and iMacs will be available shortly. Instead of new iPads, we recently received a new Apple Pencil with a USB-C connector. Now, Apple is gearing up to release a 24-inch iMac update as well as new MacBooks this month. So, let’s take a closer look at the most recent reports about these forthcoming Mac gadgets.
The New MacBook and M3 iMac: A Glimpse into the Future
According to Gurman, Apple is “planning a Mac-centered product launch,” and it could happen as soon as the “end of this month.” The current 24-inch iMac with the M1 chipset was released in 2021, making it overdue for an update.
Reports from Bloomberg indicate that Apple iMacs and MacBook Pros are currently in limited supply. It suggests that a planned update is on the horizon. Gurman also shows that Apple had plans for a “larger, pro-focused iMac” shortly after the debut of the 24-inch iMac.
However, well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently stated that the next Apple M3-equipped MacBooks might be available in the following year. We may need to temper our expectations regarding the release of the new MacBook Pros with the M3 processor. Instead, we may only see minor updates to the existing MacBooks without a significant CPU upgrade.
A Surprise in Store
According to Gurman’s source, the idea of new MacBook Pros receiving another upgrade this year might be considered unusual but not inconceivable. As per the claim, new MacBook Pros are expected to be released shortly, though the new M3 MacBook Air may not be available until next year.
The iMac’s Grand Update
One of the most significant updates expected for the new iMac is a CPU upgrade. This model is the last in Apple’s lineup to transition to the M-series processor. Apple’s M2 processor has already proven its mettle, outperforming the M1 chip with a 4 billion transistor count increase. The latest chips promise up to 35% higher GPU performance and an 18% boost in CPU performance.
The M2-based 24-inch iMac is anticipated to make its debut by the end of this month. Nevertheless, top experts have offered varying opinions on the release date of the new M3-based MacBook Pros. All that remains is to see whether Apple has an October event in store for its loyal customers, unveiling new and improved Macs.
