Apple isn’t planning to release an iMac with a bigger screen, according to a new report from Apple 9to5Mac. Citing unidentified sources familiar with Apple’s product pipeline, the site says Apple will not be introducing a larger iMac “in the near future.”


With the launch of Mac Studio, Apple halted production of the 27-inch Intel-based iMac, creating some confusion about the future of the iMac line. Apple confirmed to Ars Technica That the 27-inch iMac “has reached the end of its life,” indicating that the company has no intention of releasing an updated 27-inch model to go along with the 24-inch iMac.

Despite the 27-inch iMac being discontinued, there have been rumors of a larger iMac Pro screen that could be in development, but at least some of those rumors may be mixed in with the Studio Display. Display analyst Ross Young said this week that what his sources thought was an “iMac‌ Pro” was actually a “Studio Display Pro” coming later in the year, possibly alongside the Mac Pro.

Young no longer thinks the ‌iMac‌ Pro is coming this summer, and 9to5MacInformation seems to agree with this. The site says that Apple “currently has no plans to release high-end new versions of the All-in-One desktop at this time,” though there is a 24-inch M2 version of the ‌iMac‌ slated for release in 2023.

Still other sources suggest we may see an iMac‌ Pro at some point. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said last Sunday that the iMac‌ Pro will be released in 2023, BloombergMark Gorman claims that Apple still developing iMac Pro.

It’s not clear how the ‌iMac‌ Pro might fit into the Mac lineup now with the more powerful Studio Mac, and it’s looking more and more as if we might not see a new, larger iMac‌ display in 2022. For now, Apple is suggesting that customers invest Those who want a powerful desktop can pick up the ‌Mac Studio‌, which costs $199, while those who want an all-in-one can opt for the ‌iMac‌ 24-inch.
