Apple until the end of the current quarter will update the iMac line, according to a leading analyst of KGI Ming-Chi Kuo. The upgrade will only affect hardware monoblock machine – CPU, display, graphics, etc.
Analysts do not specify which model iMac is waiting for the update, but earlier in the code beta version of OS X El Capitan were found references to a new cased Apple computer with 21.5-inch display. The feature of this model will be the screen resolution, which will amount to 4096 x 2304 pixels.
Anyone who follows the activities of Apple, knows that the company seeks to conceal information about new products prior to their official presentation. And, of course, the company has not announced its intention to release an iMac with a 4K display, at least in the public sphere. We are talking about the leak which was made by the developers.
Last year the presentation of new 27-inch iMac, which got a 5K display with a resolution of 5120 x 2880 pixels. For more compact machines in the form factor monoblock with a 21.5 inch display 4K seems quite appropriate.
Updated monoblocks must preserve the diagonal of the display-level 21.5 inch and 27 inch. Current models of the iMac, except low-end 21.5-inch iMac, introduced in June 2014, and iMac with Retina 5K display, announced in October of the same year, were updated in September 2013. They got Quad-core processors based on the Intel Haswell architecture, improved graphics, support wireless interface Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and updated Flash drives.
