Apple has discontinued it’s 27-inch iMac when it introduced it’s new Mac Studio and 5K Studio Display However, reports released earlier this year suggested an upgrade was on the way. Based on reports from 9to5Mac however, Apple currently has no plans to introduce an all-in-one iMac larger than 24 inches anytime soon.
If this is true, it means we’re not likely to see the 27-inch model that is with an M1 processor — although the previously discontinued iMac still runs Intel chips and isn’t expected to be released anytime soon. Apple reports that it has no plans to release a bigger iMac fitted with M1 Pro, Max or Ultra also. It is also unlikely that we will see one of one of the M2-powered MacBooks which Apple will be launching later in the year. 9to5Mac claims to have gotten details from the exact source who provided the publication with information about the premium Mac Studio and the Studio Display prior to their unveiling.
The only iMacs available directly off Apple Store Apple Store website is the 24-inch model that comes with the M1 processor that was released in the year 2000. The publication claims that Apple is working on a new all-in-one computer with a 24-inch size scheduled to launch in 2023. But, like MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Air as well as the 13.2-inch MacBook Pro it is likely to remain one of the firm’s (relatively) low-cost alternatives and will not come with the most expensive processors.
