Apple Announces New iMac With Faster Intel Processors, New Graphics & Next-Gen Wi-Fi

By

The Rumor: Retina iMacs really are on the way soon, according to some info in Apple's new Xcode 6 program.

The Verdict: Looks promising. WWDC came and went without a single hardware announcement, meaning Apple has gone over 8 months without a significant new product. Based on code found in the Yosemite beta, it looks like we won't have to wait much longer for sharper iMacs to land on our desks, thanks to a file that lists scaled-up resolutions for such a display. The structure of the list is identical to resolution listings for the Retina MacBook Pro, making this rumor feel more like a sure-thing now.
