Apple Suppliers Now Shipping 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pros, Refreshed iMacs [Report]

Waiting for its little brother? The wait could soon be over.

Itching to get a Retina Mac, but worried the 15-inch MacBook Pro is too big? Well you may not have to wait too long for the 13-inch model. According to one report, Apple’s suppliers have already begun shipping the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, and refreshed iMacs ahead of their launch in the coming months.

DigiTimes reports that the new machines will be making their debut “in either September or October,” targeting the back-to-school demand, and the incredibly lucrative holiday season. However, if you’re after a high-end iMac, you may be waiting a little while longer, according to the report:

As for the iMac, Apple originally planned to release three new models with upgraded panels and CPUs, but due to poor yields of the panels, the mass production of the high-end model, has been postponed, without any launch schedule.

Given that this is a DigiTimes report, we have to warn that it may not be entirely accurate. However, rumors surrounding new iMacs in the coming months have been circulating for some time. Late last week, Fox News reported that we should prepare for Apple’s latest all-in-one, which will be launching “imminently.”

The new iMac is expected to get Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors, expanded SSD capacities, USB 3.0, and an improved graphics chip. As for the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, you can expect it to be a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro only smaller.
