Apple still working on a new ‘iMac Pro,’ M3-equipped 24-inch iMac

In the latest edition of his Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says Apple is still working on an iMac (iMac Pro?) with a larger display and a more powerful chip. He also thinks we’ll see an updated 24-inch model with an M3 processor next year.

“I also still believe that Apple is working on a larger-screened iMac aimed at the professional market,” Gurman says. “I’d imagine this will use a variation of the M3 chip, likely an M3 Pro and M3 Max. That would match the chips inside of the MacBook Pro. I don’t think the combination of a Mac Studio or Mac mini plus an Apple Studio Display cuts it for many pro users who want more screen real estate.”

Many folks were expecting to see an update of the 27-inch iMac at Apple’s March “Peek Performance” event. It didn’t happen. With the introduction of the Mac Studio, there’s been some speculation that the tech giant sees that desktop as a replacement for an iMac Pro. However, both Gurman and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo think we’ll still see an iMac bigger than 24 inch — though both say it won’t arrived until 2023.
