Apple’s rumored 27-inch iMac Pro with a mini-LED display again rumored to launch Spring 2022

In 2021, Apple launched a brand new, redesigned iMac with a 24-inch display. The company added the M1 processor under the hood, along with a few other key changes, to help spice up its desktop lineup. To help with that, the new computer also comes in a wide range of colors. But now a new rumor aims to shed some light on Apple’s pro aspirations for the desktop lineup.

According to a forward-looking report from display analyst Ross Young (via¬†MacRumors), Apple is looking to launch a brand new “iMac Pro” sometime in the spring of 2022. Which means if the rumor pans out, we could see Apple unveil the new desktop machine at its spring event. The device could launch anywhere between the end of March and the end of June of next year.

The 27-inch iMac has been rumored before, and this report from Young corroborates expectations it will launch in the spring of next year. The device is expected to reduce the bezels around the display, which is said to be a mini-LED screen. That would make it similar to the brand new display Apple introduced with the MacBook Pro redesign earlier this year as well.

That introduction of a mini-LED display would help Apple line it up as a pro machine. The 24-inch iMac does not have a mini-LED panel. What’s more, the oft-rumored 24-inch iMac Pro is said to boast a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate, and this desktop machine will reportedly feature the M1 Pro and M1 Max processor options as well.

Young also makes a note that we should not expect to see Apple’s jump to OLED displays with the MacBook or iPad until sometime in 2023.

Are you going to upgrade to an iMac Pro if these rumors pan out?
