No Redesign For Intel-Powered 2020 iMac Refresh Expected, Launch Likely In August

With Apple saying that there is going to be a new Mac with Intel chips during its WWDC event last month, many have been wondering what that might be. The smart money right now is on some form of iMac refresh and that’s what the current leaks seem to be pointing to.

Checking out Twitter certainly seems to suggest so, anyway.

Last week we saw anonymous leaker L0vetodream say that there are new products “ready to ship” , although there was no further elaboration on what that actually meant.

However, a few people have since suggested that we might even see a new iMac as soon as this week. However, leaker Jon Prosser has poured scorn on that by instead saying that we won’t see any sign of a new iMac until August at the earliest.

If you want the new iMac, keep an eye out for August. No redesign.

Of course, August is just a week away so that doesn’t mean we will have to wait too long before we see what’s going to go down.

What we can be pretty sure about, however, is that this iMac refresh won’t bring with it a new design, something that Apple is likely to be saving for machines powered by its own silicon. Those hoping for the rumored iPad Pro-like squared-off design won’t be happy to hear that, but there should be some improvements on the inside, at least.

We’re hopeful that Apple will finally ditch the Fusion Drive that makes the low end iMacs so unbearably slow, and Apple’s T2 security chip will also likely put in an appearance there, too.
