Gurman explains: “I also still believe that Apple is working on a larger-screened iMac aimed at the professional market. I’d imagine this will use a variation of the M3 chip, likely an M3 Pro and M3 Max. That would match the chips inside of the MacBook Pro. I don’t think the combination of a Mac Studio or Mac mini plus an Apple Studio Display cuts it for many pro users who want more screen real estate”.
According to rumours, Apple is developing a larger-screened iMac with an M3 CPU “aimed at the professional market.” Garreffa, Anthony. With reports circulating that Apple will begin employing its next-generation M3 chip inside of a “future iMac” starting in June 2022, we now have the most recent information on what to expect from the new iMac. According to the most recent “Power On” newsletter from Mark Gurman, the next-generation Apple iMac will not only have a “variant of the M3 chip,” but the company is also reportedly working on a “larger-screened iMac,” a new model that is targeted at the “professional market.”
I would love to see Apple release, not just a “larger-screened” iMac, but a really huge-screened iMac, since the current 24-inch iMac (which is powered by the Apple M1 processor) is small, a larger 27-inch iMac would be nice to see — but I want something bigger. Apple is rumored to be working on a larger 27-inch Studio Display with a bigger-than-life 7K resolution, but a bigger 32-inch 5K or 6K panel at 120Hz would get my attention.
As for the Apple M3 processor, the last we heard is that Apple has booked TSMC to make its next-gen M3 and M2 Pro chips on the new TSMC 3nm process node. It’s rumored that we’ll see Apple use the M3 processor inside of not only this new beefed-up, larger-screened iMac but also new MacBook Pro laptops, a new Mac mini, and Apple’s upcoming AR/MR headset. * Prices last scanned on 7/4/2022 at 11:29 pm CDT – prices may not be accurate, click links above for the latest price.

That, and the Apple M3, M3 Pro, or M3 Max processor and oodles of super-fast RAM and SSD… and you’ve got a beasty workstation PC.

And if you’re waiting for a new iMac, i’m hearing an M3 version of that desktop is already in the works – though I imagine it won’t launch until the end of next year at the earliest. Also, for those asking, I still think an iMac Pro is coming. It just won’t be anytime soon”.
