Apple is currently experimenting with larger iMacs, including a 32-inch version, for their renowned desktop line. This information comes from Mark Gurman, a journalist at Bloomberg who mentioned it in the subscriber-only edition of his Power On newsletter. however, the development is still in its early stages, and there might be changes along the way. According to Gurman, it is unlikely for the new iMac to be released before the end of 2024.
Gurman also adjusted his prediction for the release of the M3-powered iMac. In March, he had suggested that it could arrive as early as the second half of this year. However, he now anticipates its introduction in the early months of next year.
It is logical for Apple to work on a bigger iMac, considering that many people prefer larger screens. Currently, Apple offers a 24-inch model which acts as a compromise between the older 21.5-inch version and the 27-inch Intel iMac that was discontinued last year. However, having a full 5K display is more desirable for those who frequently have numerous applications open simultaneously.
A larger iMac would also benefit creative individuals, as it would allow them to see intricate details while working on art or editing images. The same applies to music and video production, where precise edits on a timeline are essential. Apple has not released a particularly suitable iMac for professional creative work since the 27-inch iMac Pro (or a significantly upgraded standard iMac), and this has been disappointing.
