Apple Has Started Production Testing of New iMac, Possible Launch in 2H23 [Gurman]

Apple has started production testing of new iMac desktop nearly two years after its last update, according to Mark Gurman.

I can now share some good news. Apple Inc.'s next iMac desktop is at an advanced stage of development called engineering validation testing, or EVT, and the company is conducting production tests of the machine.

The new model will keep the same 24-inch screen size and the same colors including blue, silver, pink and orange. Some internal components will be relocated and redesigned, and the manufacturing process for attaching the iMac's stand has purportedly been changed.


Gurman believes the desktop won't be ready for production until the second half of 2023. Notably, the new iMac may be one of the first Macs to feature an M3 chip built on TSMC's 3nm process.

While development of the new iMacs — codenamed J433 and J434 — has reached a late stage, it's not expected to go into mass production for at least three months. That means it won't ship until the second half of the year at the earliest. Still, this is a great development for anyone disappointed that Apple's all-in-one desktop hasn't been updated in nearly two years.

If you need an iMac now, Amazon is offering $100 off the M1 iMac, bringing its price down to $1199.
