Apple may finally have plans to redesign the look of its all-in-one desktops, the iMacs. According to the Bloomberg website, which cited sources “familiar” with the subject, the Cupertino company has been able to apply the biggest changes in the appearance of computers since 2012.
According to the website, the changes consist of slightly reducing the thickness of its body and also replacing the rounded rear of the iMacs with a flat surface. In addition, it is also expected that the American giant will reduce much of the rear edge of the computer, that is, that large “chin” that houses the brand logo apple. With this change, the next desktops of the American company should have a closer look at the Pro Display XDR screen.
The last “big” change of look on Apple’s all-in-one computers happened in 2012, when the company gave up DVD drivers and, with that, made their edges a little thinner.
The new change should already be noticed in the next two models of iMacs, which will be identified by the codenames J456 and J457. Both versions will hit the market as direct successors to the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs. According to sources found by Bloomberg, the two new models will be launched in 2021.
The new editions of the Desktops of Tim Cook’s company will use, like their predecessors, the new Apple Silicon processors based on ARM, hardware that replaced the Intel boards in the latest models of Apple devices.
So far, however, Apple has not commented on these alleged changes to the visuals of the iMacs and a company spokesman declined to comment on this matter with Bloomberg. Meanwhile, other rumors point to the possibility of Apple launching new models of its desktops with the thinnest edges already during the month of March.
