It looks like Apple is going to redesign many of its computers this year. Earlier we said that for the first time in many years the appearance of MacBook Pro laptops will change, but now there is similar news about other computers of the company – the iMac.
Apple is gearing up to release all-new iMac computers
In particular, the new iMacs due this year will also look different. The current design is very many years old and the new models will look like the Pro Display XDR. That is, they will become more angular, like the new MacBook Pros. We are also promised thinner bezels around the screen.
Two new iMac models are expected this year to replace the current 21.5-inch and 27-inch models. However, there is no data on whether the diagonals will change.
Of course, the new iMacs will be based on Apple Silicon. Whether it will be an Apple M1 or some other platform is still unknown.
In addition, Apple is allegedly preparing a new monitor. They do not need to change the design, so the main difference will be in a significantly lower price. To recap, the current Pro Display XDR starts at $5,000. Of course, many Apple fans would like a similar monitor, but for significantly less money.
The upcoming MacBook Pro laptops will look like the iPhone 12
Apple is currently preparing new MacBook Pro laptops for release. Significant design changes await the line. This was announced by the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities, known for his ties to the Apple production chain.
According to the analyst, Apple will release two MacBook Pro models – with a display diagonal of 14 and 16 inches. The new design will feature flat edges, without the curvature of current models. Ming-Chi Kuo describes the MacBook Pro’s design as “similar to the iPhone 12.” This will be the most significant design update for the MacBook Pro in five years.
The laptops will lose the Touch Bar with OLED display. Instead, Apple will bring back hardware function keys. The design of the MagSafe charging connector will also be revived. Also, the updated MacBook Pro will receive additional connectors. At the same time, all laptops will use Apple’s SoC, versions based on Intel processors are not planned.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, we can expect new MacBook Pros to be released in Q3 2021.
