Next-Generation iMac Chip, Stand, and Color Details Rumored Ahead of Apple Event

Apple's upcoming iMac refresh will feature a new chip, an internally redesigned stand, and a similar array of color options to the current model, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

Following Apple's announcement of its "Scary Fast" event scheduled for Monday, October 30, Gurman reposted a Power On newsletter published in March on X (formerly Twitter) and reiterated several key details:

The main change to the ‌iMac‌ will apparently be its processor, with the new machine featuring Apple's M3 chip. The current model has the M1 chip and Gurman has repeatedly said that the ‌iMac‌ will skip the M2 chip entirely. He previously remarked that he expects it to be "one of the company's first M3-based machines."

Gurman mentioned the new ‌iMac‌'s internally redesigned stand back in March, explaining that "the computer will see some of its internal components relocated and redesigned, and the manufacturing process for attaching the ‌iMac‌'s stand is different." According to his latest comments, the internally redesigned stand remains on the new machine.

The current, M1-based ‌iMac‌ is available in green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver. In March, Gurman said that the new ‌iMac‌ was being tested in orange, pink, blue, and silver finishes. Gurman has now reiterated his claim that the color options of the new machine will remain "similar," which suggests that there may still be some changes.

The next-generation ‌iMac‌ is otherwise expected to be the same as the current 24-inch model. Gurman's information indicates that the new ‌iMac‌ entered mass production sometime between June and August, suggesting that it is now ready to launch.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri
