On Tuesday, April 20, Apple will hold its “Spring Loaded” event. Until now, the Cupertino-based company had only been rumored to be launching the latest iPad Pro (potentially with the third-generation Apple Pencil). However, a credible source now claims that Apple will unveil new iMac models on April 20.
On his Twitter account, renowned tipster L0vetodream posted an image of Apple’s April 20 invite artwork alongside a snapshot of the colorful G3 iMac lineup in all of its colors. This follows L0vetodream’s tweet of an event invitation with the caption “enjoy these colors.”
Apple’s latest iMac computers will be available in a variety of colours, similar to the previous iMac computers, according to tipster Jon Prosser. L0vetodream’s latest hint confirms Prosser’s prediction, implying that Apple will release an iMac device next week.
Apple is in the process of transitioning its Mac lineup to Apple Silicon, and the iMac is anticipated to be the company’s next product to use the company’s own silicon chipset. Besides the Apple silicon chip and various color choices, this year’s iMac models will also feature a significant redesign, similar to the company’s Pro Display XDR monitor.
Bloomberg announced earlier this year that this will be “one of the most significant design updates to the iMac.” Apple iMac models this year are expected to have larger displays than the existing 21.5-inch and 27-inch models.
Apple’s redesigned iMac computers will come in five colours, according to tipster Jon Prosser, which will mimic the colours seen on the original G3 iMac, which was released in 1998. The redesigned iMacs would be available in Silver, Space Grey, Green, Sky Blue, and Rose Gold, according to Prosser.
The redesigned iMac is also supposed to look identical to Apple’s Pro Display XDR panel, which has no chin at the bottom of the display and was launched in 2019. The latest iMac computers will have a flat back panel instead of the curved back panel, and previous rumours have indicated that the 2021 iMacs will have a design similar to the iPad.
