Following yesterday’s official announcement of the first Apple Event on March 8, 2022, a new rumor suggests that we will see the upcoming 2022 iMac Pro’s debut next week. We are expecting Apple to reveal three new products, though we are not sure if a fourth one is on the list.
Today, China-based reliable leaker DuanRui tweeted that they “definitely” expect Apple to debut a Mac product and that the “higher-end iMac” will debut at next week’s event:
“I heard again today that it might be the higher-end iMac, not the entry-level MacBook Pro. Whichever it is, there will definitely be a Mac product.”
Last year, DuanRui was one of the three China-based leakers who received a crackdown by Apple due to the intensive list of leaks they made.
Ross Young, a more reliable display supply analyst, is not expecting Apple to launch the 2022 iMac Pro this spring. As he reports that panel shipments will begin in June, pushing the unveiling of the product to at least WWDC 2022 with the launch expected in either August or September.
In late January, a report by @Dylandkt emerged and cited that a fourth variant of the M1 Chip is in production for its implementation in the upcoming iMac Pro.
Additionally, Apple’s 27-inch iMac with Nano-Textured Display was labeled to be unavailable until late March, which indicates that a new Mac desktop machine is on the way, making the return of the professional desktop machine much more possible.
We at Appleosophy don’t think that the iMac Pro will debut this month, as Mark Gurman of Bloomberg noted in early February that the high-end machine will arrive this summer – presumably at WWDC 2022 – featuring a new design, 27-inch display, 120Hz ProMotion, mini-LED backlight, and more.
