iMacs with Retina displays in late testing within Apple, could launch soon

“A new line of iMacs with ultra high-resolution Retina Displays is in late testing stages within Apple, according to our sources who have used the future desktop computer,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“While the machine will sport a thin profile similar to that of the current design, which was introduced in 2012, it will be packed with new internals such as faster processors and improved WiFi antennas,” Gurman reports. “The fact that the iMac is in late testing indicates that Apple could be preparing to launch it alongside OS X Yosemite this fall.”

“OS X Yosemite betas include references to 6400 x 3600, 5760×3240, and 4096×2304 resolution screens,” Gurman reports. “Apple has been rumored to be working on a 5K iMac display for launch later this year, so perhaps that’s the direction Apple will take, and a recently introduced DisplayPort standard update could make this a reality.”

    1. Same here. Still holding onto my mid 2010 21″ iMac despite being pretty desperate to connect my Retina MBP to a larger screen whilst working at home. A retina iMac would be just such a massive upgrade over the current model it’s worth waiting for.

  1. Soldered on memory and non replaceable hard drive like the current crop, I have no interest. I will only buy a mac mini as I can replaced the hard drive when it dies and upgrade the memory.
