2021 appears to be a big year for the Mac. As we wait for Apple to release new M1 chip powered Macs, new reports suggest the upcoming Macs will bring way more than redesigned internals. A new report from Bloomberg claims that Apple is going to finally bring redesign for the iMac, a product that has not been redesigned since 2012.
In addition to a redesigned iMac the company is also rumored to finally release an external monitor that will be low priced and targeted towards normal users rather than pro users as done by its Pro Display XDR. Another new product that we can expect from the company is a new Mac Pro.
The new iMac redesign that will come “later this year” is said to feature smaller bezels around the display. The design of the computer might be similar to that of the Pro Display XDR. This will not only include thinner bezel on top and both sides but should also result in removal of the large chin area that we have on iMacs for nearly a decade.This redesigned iMac 2021 will come two sizes that will replace today’s 21.5-inch and 27-inch models. The computer will have a flat back design as well.
New External Monitor For Macs
Apple has also started early development of a lower-priced external monitor according to Bloomberg’s report. This new monitor will be a successor to now discontinued Thunderbolt display, which was available for $999 until 2016. Although we can expect a similar design as the Pro XDR Display on this new monitor don’t expect it to feature high-end Pro feature found on Apple’s $4,999 Pro display.
New Mac Pros Also In The Pipeline
Mac Pro lineup is also said to be in Apple’s pipeline. The report says Apple will be releasing two Mac Pros this year, one of which will feature the same design as Mac Pro launched in 2019. This Mac Pro will feature Intel processors instead of the Apple Silicone.
The second model of Mac Pro will have Apple’s own processors and will be “half the size of the current Mac Pro”. This computer will feature an aluminium exterior that may remind users of the Power Mac G4 Cube.
