There were suggestions that Apple would refresh its iMac at WWDC yesterday — alongside the updates it issued to the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro. However, the Cupertino company’s popular all-in-one didn’t get a mention during the two-hour keynote. That could be because it is hard at work on redesigning the iMac and the Mac Pro.
According to one Apple executive, both machines will receive big updates next year.
David Pogue of The New York Times published a new report entitled “An Explanation of the News From Apple” hours after the company’s keynote ended yesterday, in which he noted that there was no update to the iMac, and that the Mac Pro update wasn’t quite the refresh many were expecting.
However, Pogue insists that an Apple executive has “assured” him new designs are on the way:
Many Apple observers also wonder if Apple thinks that desktop computers are dead, since not a word was said about the iMac and Mac Pro. An executive did assure me, however, that new models and new designs are under way, probably for release in 2013.
You’re stick with your current iMac for a little while, then, but with reports of a new redesign, the wait could be well worth it.
