2018 Apple iMac Pro: Release Date, Price, What We Want To See

3:19 PM

Expected to be released in the second of half of 2018 is the iMac 2018. With that being said, here are the things that you need to know about the said device.

What Fans Want To See

Just like any other new and upcoming device, there will be some fan expectations concerning its specs, features, price and more. So what are the things that fans want to see?

A New Design

For ten years now, it has been sporting almost the same look with only very little tweaks – or if we are, to be honest, it’s basically the same look. Hopefully, for this year, Apple will give it some major redesign like slimming the body even further, offering more color options, or something more drastic.

Taking Inspiration From The iMac Pro

Compared to the Pro version, there are some things that its expensive sibling features that we hope would be featured on the standard version. One is that it will ditch the hard drive and stick with solid state drives instead which in return will allow the device to be slimmer. Another is the cooling system of the Pro version which greatly helps reduce the heat of the components.

Taking Inspiration From The MacBook

With the MacBooks, it has this feature called the Touch Bar which is touch-sensitive buttons. Fans are hoping that the Cupertino company could have this feature on the iMac as well.

Taking Inspiration From The iPhone

With the iPhones, it’s the Face ID technology. Yeah, without a doubt fans want this as well.

Powerful Specs

Of course, every new device should at least feature powerful specs. If it’s a successor to a device, then it should carry more powerful and amazing specs and features.

Regarding its processor, fans are hoping that for the entry-level version alone, iMac Pro 2018 will at least feature Intel’s latest quad-core processors – Intel Coffee Lake. As for the graphics, well, it could be AMD’s Vega graphics cards.

For It To Exist And Come This Year

Well, this is the most important one of all. Although there is a very high expectation that it will be released this year, for all we know, there could be some issues which could potentially delay the release and push it next year.

So When Is It Coming?

Well, last year’s model was announced on June 2017 at the WWDC event. But as you may already know, this year’s WWDC was heavily focused on software and there was no mention of the device.

Right now, reports are pointing towards September or October. But who knows, Apple might surprise us just like what they did with the 2018 MacBook Pro.

The Price Tag

Regarding its price tags, as of now, there are no official announcements about it yet. Right now, reports suggest (or are hoping) that it could retain the current pricing – $1,099 for the base price, while the Pro version starts at $4,999.

So, do you agree with the fan expectations? What other things would you like to see in the iMac Pro 2018? Tell us in the comment section below.
