A report from DigiTimes has provided conflicting information about Apple's upcoming 27-inch iMac.
Up until now, the 27-inch iMac was believed to be targeted at professionals and will have a high-quality mini-LED display – just like the 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro and the latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
However, DigiTimes is now refuting that and says the upcoming 27-inch iMac will instead ship with more conventional LCD displays. However, the displays will around 30% to 40% brighter.
DigiTimes' report also say that the new iMac will have a design similar to the 24-inch iMac and that it will come in multiple colours.
That said, many sites doubt the accuracy of DigiTimes' report and Ross Young, a display analyst with over 25 years of experience, tweeted that he believes the 27-inch iMac will have a mini-LED display.
As with all things Apple, it's really hard to say. DigiTimes' report could well be true and that could mean we have a 27-inch iMac that is more similar to the 24-inch iMac. This is plausible given that the M1 chip is no slouch and this model would give customers the option of an iMac with a larger display but without the added cost of Apple's more powerful M1 Pro and M1 Max chip.
This could then mean space for a third separate Pro model a la iMac Pro. Regardless, it looks like next year would be an exciting one for Macs.
