Looks like we may seen an updated 24-inch iMac (and more) soon

Apple’s iMacs and MacBook Pros are in short supply ahead of planned updates at the end of this month,  Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says in his latest “Power On” newsletter. This contradicts some reports that we wouldn’t see any new Macs this year. 

The all-in-one is way overdue for an update. Apple last updated the iMac in April 2021, introducing a version of its iconic all-in-one computer with an M1 chip. Fans of the iMac have waited more than 900 days since the last model debuted.

Gurman says that was never the plan. Apple had aimed to release a larger, pro-focused iMac soon after the 24-inch iMac launched. Under the original road map, you would have seen the M1 24-inch iMac, then an M2-based iMac Pro and, finally, a 24-inch iMac refresh. However, those plans got shuttered when the iMac Pro plans were at least temporarily canned due to cost concerns. 

Gurman expects an updated 24-inch iMac to be announced on Oct. 30 or 31st of this month along with updated MacBook Pros. And, hopefully, the new all-in-one will indeed sport an M3 processor.
