There’ll Be No 27-Inch iMac For You, Apple Confirms
Following the unveiling of the 24-inch M3-powered iMac last week there was once again a question surrounding whether Apple would bring the 27-inch model back from the dead.
The machine was killed off officially in 2022, but in reality, it was done for long before that. Now, Apple has confirmed that anyone hoping to get their hands on a new 27-inch model with Apple silicon inside should look elsewhere.
Apple doesn’t normally comment on rumors, but with the 27-inch talk continuing the company told The Verge that the 24-inch iMac is going to be a lone wolf in the all-in-one market for a company that once even sold the iMac Pro — a Mac Pro crossed with an iMac.
Apple PR representative Starlayne Meza confirmed the company’s plans to The Verge. The company encourages those who have been holding out hope for a larger iMac to consider the Studio Display and Mac Studio or Mac Mini, which pair a 27-inch 5K screen with a separate computer, compared to the all-in-one design of the iMac.
This is of course going to be disappointing news for fans of the all-in-one lifestyle, but it’s good to know exactly where we stand.
The Mac mini nor the Mac Studio have been updated with M3-series chips as yet, however, and the Mac Studio in particular is a much more expensive proposition when you mate it with that monitor Apple’s so fond of.
