A tipster/Twitter user, @dylandkt, claims that the bigger version of Apple’s M1 iMac will arrive in 2022 instead of 2021. This might be to boost M1X MacBook Pro sales.
Luckily, fans craving the larger screen desktop experience can connect their M1X MacBook Pro to an external monitor. In case anyone is not too keen on the idea of carrying a computer around all day, then the good news is that the same tipster stated that Apple will announce an M1X Mac mini in Q4 2021. The delay in the bigger Apple Silicon iMac’s launch indicates that it will have the same specifications as the M1X MacBook Pro models.
On the contrary, a previous report stated that the larger ‘All in One’ is expected to be fuelled by an Apple M2X chipset. Currently, there is no clarity on whether M2X and M1X are the same chipsets with different names or entirely separate custom silicon. However, it will be surprising to see a more powerful, larger iMac than the upcoming MacBook Pro models.
In other development, the M2 chipset is under the works at Apple, which will debut in the 2022 MacBook Air and will be released in Q2 2022. It is expected that the chipset will share the same manufacturing process as the A15 Bionic, which means fans can expect slightly increased performance and power efficiency.
