Rumors About the Next Pro Macs

Tim Hardwick:

On Twitter, Dylandkt claimed that Apple’s “high end iMac” is not expected to release in the fourth quarter of 2021 alongside Apple’s “M1X Macs” – a reference to Apple’s redesigned MacBook Pro models – because “Apple simply does not want their devices to compete for attention and delays in product releases have led to this timetable.”

In previous claims, Dylandkt has remained adamant that an “M1X” Apple silicon processor is destined for high-end “Pro” Macs, which could include the upcoming MacBook Pro models and a larger, more powerful iMac model. Apple is expected to release 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models at some point between September and November.

I’ve been waiting for the new iMac (27-inch or Pro) to use my DTK coupon that expires at the end of this year, though I might be persuaded to get a 16-inch MacBook Pro (which hasn’t been updated since its release in 2019) if there’s an external display available.

Juli Clover:

A new Mac Pro that’s coming in 2022 is set to use Intel’s Ice Lake Xeon W-3300 workstation chips, according to an Intel leaker that WCCFtech says has offered reliable information on Intel Xeon chips in the past.

I’ve not heard anything about timing for the Apple Silicon Mac Pro, except that Apple announced in June 2020 that the full product line would transition within two years.

I am definitely hanging out to buy a new Apple Silicon iMac with my DTK coupon, so I will be extremely disappointed if they aren't released.

Oh well, time will tell.

This is why I upgraded from my 2015 iMac 27" last year. I figured it would be a while until the pro type machines were ready.
