27-inch iMac rumors: Everything you need to know

Apple’s 27-inch iMac was a popular all-in-one desktop machine, not least because of its stunning 5K Retina display. That display eventually found its way into the new Studio Display, but with the 27-inch iMac now discontinued and the 24-inch version the only iMac on sale, what are the chances that we could see the 27-inch option resurrected?

Here’s everything we know about a potential new 27-inch iMac so far.

27-inch iMac processors

If Apple does launch a new 27-inch iMac, it’s possible it could use some form of Apple M2 processor. The last iMac Pro rumors we heard suggested that machine would use M1 Pro or M1 Max chips, although that seems less likely now that we’re already looking at M2 Pro and M2 Max MacBook Pro notebooks being on the horizon. Could the iMac Pro use M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips, leaving M2 Pro for the 27-inch iMac? Rumors aren’t pointing to that currently, but they aren’t saying much at all at this point, either.

Apple’s 24-inch iMac brought with it an all-new design with more colors than you can shake a stick at. That seems likely to be the case with the new 27-inch iMac, at least in the design aspect. Colors could well differ, but we’ll have to wait and see if this Mac actually exists before getting too into the weeds in terms of color options.
