Having already the list of Apple launches closed for this year, it is time to think about what will come in 2022. There will be many new devices and maybe some other surprise, but without a doubt one of the most anticipated is the large iMac, which could even carry the surname “Pro” after the disappearance of this range in 2021. And what features are we all looking forward to most? Do they coincide with the leaks? We analyze it.
Wishes vs Reality with the future iMac
The first great wish of users is also practically a fact and is that it carries inside a Apple Silicon. It would be rare that after starting the transition from Intel to these, the company would back down. Now, the question revolves around whether they will mount the future M2 or the M1 Pro and M1 Max recently presented with the new MacBook Pro. What users expect is the latter and based on the leaks, we can happily say that everything points to which will indeed be these chips.
Without leaving aside the components, there are those who also hope that RAM can be changed with ease as it already happens in the 27-inch iMac. It is a very interesting option and that leaves it up to the user to be able to go for more when he needs it, but we are pessimistic about the idea that it incorporates it knowingly about the structure of Apple’s chips, which integrate this memory within its own chip.
As for the screen Regarding, the potential customers of this iMac expect Apple to leave 27 inches behind to accommodate a panel of at least 32 inches, while maintaining the same size by reducing edges. Unfortunately, this seems to be the most uncertain now, since the rumors say one thing and the opposite. There are those who claim that it will remain 27 inches so as not to outshine the Pro Display XDR and those who bet that it will eventually grow diagonally. Be that as it may, what is expected to have miniLED panels with 120 Hz refresh rate, another novelty inherited from the recent MacBook Pro.
The fourth great wish also has to do with the design and it is that the colors are taking more and more importance in all the ranges of Apple products. The 24-inch iMac is a great example of this, although it does not serve to confirm that the large one is in the same line. What’s more, based on what Apple does with its more advanced ranges, it would not be surprising if they finally incorporated more neutral colors such as silver and space gray. Although, without a doubt, many professionals would also be delighted with green, yellow, red and even pink tones.
The fifth and final wish with which we close this round is related to an old Apple acquaintance: the price. We know that Apple does not sell low-end products and that its prices are not the most popular, so it does not seem that this iMac is going to be the exception. However, with what has already been seen in the Macs of this last year, the price may be high and yet be more democratized, even going down with respect to Intel. And it is that the M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max offer higher performance and better specifications for less price than these now almost extinct Apple computers with Intel processors.
Will the forecasts be fulfilled? There will be surprises? I wish we knew. Luckily, and again based on the leaks, it would be in March or April when Apple would release this device. Therefore, although there are several months ahead, the countdown has already begun and we will surely discover many things in advance.
