The appearance of the new MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips seems the definitive starting signal for other computers in the range to also be renewed. The next candidate? The 27-inch iMac.
According to the latest data from industry sources, that 27-inch iMac will feature a panel with MiniLED and ProMotion technology (up to 120 Hz). Its arrival is expected in early 2022, and it is expected that it will take advantage of some of Apple’s new chips.
MiniLED displays conquer Macs
Apple already renewed its 24-inch iMac in April of this year, and it did so with a colorful and ultra-thin design in which integrated M1 chips and options like the Touch ID sensor keyboard.
The 27-inch iMacs are probably more ambitious in terms of performance. The screen, for example, will take a leap in quality by making use of a MiniLED panel that will be supported by ProMotion technology, which allows you to enjoy an adaptive refresh rate ranging from 24 to 120 Hz.
The data comes from Ross Young, CEO of the consultancy Display Supply Chain Consultants. According to your data that iMac will have XDR technology inherited from Pro Display XDR displays. It will be interesting to see if Apple takes advantage of the redesign of the 24-inch iMac or removes that lower “chin” that was criticized on these models.
Although the resolution that these panels will have is not known, the current 27-inch iMac have a 5K resolution. Although this data has not been confirmed or leaked, it is reasonable to think that the new 27-inch iMac have the M1 Pro and even with variants with the M1 Max.
Ross has already advanced with success to the characteristics of the screens of the 8.3-inch iPad mini o al ProMotion support of the newer MacBook Pros, and it is evident that it is very well connected with sources in the industry dedicated to computer displays.
