With the rumor mill churning out reports that a totally redesigned Apple Silicon iMac is imminent and with Apple recently discontinuing the iMac Pro, an unreleased iMac with an ARM processor has appeared via Xcode’s Crash Reporter feature.
This developer’s application crashed while being used on an iMac powered by an ARM processor. Apple does not currently sell an iMac powered by an ARM processor, so this signals that the app was being used on an unreleased iMac with Apple Silicon processor.
9to5Mac was able to take a look at the crash report file and confirm that the crash did occur on ARM64 (the architecture used by Apple Silicon), and the device family matches iMac, so it’s unlikely to be an indication error. The screenshot was shared with 9to5Mac by developer Dennis Oberhoff, developer of the DaftCloud application for Mac.
Apple has become quite good at cleaning up these reports to omit any potentially revealing details, so unfortunately we can’t decipher much else at this moment. Nonetheless, it joins a growing amount of evidence to suggest that a redesigned iMac with Apple Silicon is coming sooner rather than later.
MacDailyNews Take: This unreleased Apple Silicon iMac appearing in a developer’s Xcode log is a sure sign that the new iMac is imminent!
