Last week, Apple introduced the redesigned iMac 24-inch M3. But rumors have been circulating for some time that the company would also update the iMac 27-inch. And just like its little brother, the brand new M3 chipsets were floating around the Internet as a suitable upgrade.
Today, however, Apple denied these rumors and, unusually, the Californians did so in person in an official statement. According to Starlayne Meza from Apple’s PR department, there will be no 27-inch iMac with an M-series chipset. Regardless of whether it is the M1 as in the iMac 24″ (2021), the M2 or the M3.
For those for whom the screen of the iMac 24″ is too small, Apple recommends combining a 27-inch studio display with a Mac Studio or a Mac mini. Of course, this means that you don’t have the all-in-one integration of the iMac. But the 24-inch iMac also has its limitations, especially with regard to the chipset itself. On the one hand, you can only configure the M3 basic version, on the other hand, there are a maximum of four USB-C ports on board and nothing else.
But if you read between the lines, you’ll see that Apple’s PR lady specifically mentioned that there won’t be a 27-inch iMac. We are optimistic and interpret this to mean that there will more likely be an iMac 32″ with M3 Pro and M3 Max options.
