iMac Breaks Previous Record Of Longest Span Between Updates, 2019 iMac Around Corner?
To all Apple fans that have been waiting for the Cupertino-based tech company to release a new update of the iMac, it’s been hard. And to add salt to injury, a new record for the longest span between iMac refreshes has been achieved.
Ding! New Record Achieved!
According to a report, the previous record of the longest span between iMac refreshes reached 601 days between October 2015 and June 2017. As for the new record, it reached 602 days, starting from June 2017.
Will There Be A New iMac This Year?
According to reports, the 2019 iMac could possibly arrive at WWDC 2019. Of course, this is based on the 2017 update of the iMac which took place in June at WWDC 2017. But given that Apple didn’t repeat themselves last year, the probability of this happening is hard to tell. Well, if it doesn’t happen, then fans can probably expect for it in October or just don’t expect at all unless Apple makes an official announcement.
The folks over at TechRadar made a list of what they want to see in the iMac 2019.
First on the list is a new design. This includes offering more color options, slimming down the body even further, or something more drastic.
The second thing they want to see is to take inspiration from the iMac Pro. This includes ditching the hard drive and stick with solid state drives instead, which would allow Apple to make it even slimmer while giving it a huge boost. Another feature they could take is the iMac Pro’s clever cooling technology.
The third one is taking inspiration from the MacBook and iPhone. From the MacBook, that would be the Touch Bar. Meanwhile, from the iPhone, it’s Face ID technology.
The last one is the processor. It would be one hell of a device if the 2019 iMac could come with the latest 9th-generation Coffee Lake Refresh processors. If not, then the 8th-generation Coffee Lake processor would still be welcomed.
