Apple to Launch Updated iMac in October?
Apple's supply chain is set to begin production of an updated iMac in July ahead of an October launch, according to a DigiTimes report.
The sources also noted that Apple plans to expand Retina Display into all the product lines, meaning that the new iMac will have a high chance of featuring Retina Display; however, the rumors are not confirmed by Apple.
The sources pointed out that Apple is pushing Retina Display for its products in hoping to surpass its competitors in terms of screen resolution since most other notebook and tablet PC vendors are still adopting Full HD display for their products; however, since there are only limited contents that are capable of supporting Retina Display, while Retina Display is a lot expensive than a Full HD panel, most PC vendors currently still have no plan to follow suit and launch product with high resolution panel.
The site's sources say Apple is planning to release a redesigned iMac and Mac Pro in 2013.
