Apple may launch 27-inch iMac Pro with Mini LED display next year

Apple’s next-year lineup of Macs is going to be fascinating. A new report now gives additional details about the 27-inch iMac Pro which will replace the 27-inch Intel model. Display Supply Chain Consultants has revealed that Apple’s next iMac Pro will have a mini LED 27-inch display with ProMotion technology. This is Apple’s term for adaptive refresh rate on displays.

According to the supply chain report, the next iMac Pro will arrive sometime between March and May 2022. Apple will launch Universal Control, which allows both Macs and iPads to transfer content from one device to another seamlessly.

Apple is increasing production of Mini LED displays by doubling down. Apple has already used Mini LEDs in the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro powered by Apple’s Silicon processors. We’ll see this on the iMac Pro, which is expected to arrive in 2022. If the next iMac Pro features it, it will be the third Apple product to feature it.

The Display Supply Chain Consultants report was not new. Several rumors had previously suggested that the next iMac Pro would use the next-generation display technology. Mini LED, a new advanced LED technology, tries to replicate the colors of OLED panels but uses tiny LED modules. Because of this, there are fewer chances of burn-in.

In his newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman recently wrote that Apple is developing a high-end iMac using Apple Silicon and that it could arrive in 2022. There are no guesses because he was referring specifically to the iMac Pro, which is the top-end desktop computer of the company. Initial rumors were that the iMac Pro would arrive before year’s end. Gurman posted an update stating that Apple may have delayed the iMac Pro to make room for the 24-inch iMac equipped with an M1 CPU.

Next year’s iMac Pro may have a base model configuration with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD storage. This is similar to the MacBook Pro. According to Dylandkt, a tipter on Twitter, there may be an option to choose between M1 Pro or M1 Max chipsets for the iMac Pro. The tipster, Dylandkt on Twitter, also mentioned that an additional configuration is possible. However, details are not available. The iMac Pro could have an HDMI port, SD card slots, USB-C ports and – like the 24-inch iMac – an Ethernet port on the standard charging brick.
The tipster suggested that Apple could also be considering bringing Face ID to the iMac Pro. However, it is not confirmed. We may see the Touch ID biometric system continue to use the iMac Pro keyboard.
