New iMac Coming in 2013, Says Apple Exec

Apple’s WWDC 2012 keynote brought with it a bundle of software and hardware updates. But a new iMac was not among them. However, fresh designs are reportedly set to land next year.

In an article on WWDC 2012, The New York Times’s David Pogue wrote in reference to new iMac and Mac Pro models that “An executive did assure me, however, that new models and new designs are under way, probably for release in 2013.” While an off-hand remark is hardly an official confirmation, it suggests that Apple isn’t forgetting about the iMac altogether.

Likely updates for the all-in-one system include a Retina Display and – naturally – faster processors than current models. Apple’s Mac Pro desktops did receive a minor spec bump following WWDC 2012, but nothing compared to the changes in the 15in MacBook Pro.

Big announcements from WWDC 2012 included the full scoop on iOS 6 features, a release date for OS X Mountain Lion and new MacBook models.

Update: Apple PR has reached out and clarified that only the Mac Pro is expected to be next updated in 2013. The company had no comment about the iMac, which perhaps means that the iMac could see updates earlier than next year. It has been 406 days since the iMac last received an update, significantly longer than the traditional iMac update interval.

My first experience with Apple has been poor. My 18 month old, top of the range iMac 27" has caused me nothing but repeated difficulties. Too many problems to document here. Culminating in total HD failure. Apple could not be less interested.

So, £1600 lighter in the wallet, I am forced back to Microsoft. I would advise people to think very carefully before wasting their money on Apple.
