Despite the hectic preparations, though, Apple is most definitely not forgetting about their other famous products, and this includes the iMac. As a matter of fact, according to news site Bloomberg, the tech giant is currently finding ways to rejuvenate and refresh their flagship desktop PC.
According to Christian Times, a major overhaul with the iMac is not to be expected, however, with only a set of creative tweaking to be done with it, to add a fresher perspective to things. Part of these anticipated changes would include a more powerful AMD chip for smoother and crisper graphics, as well as an all-new USB port for easier management for other gadgets being used.

Current CEO of the tech giant, Tim Cook, however, was quick to assure that Apple would still give its full devotion to their desktop PC amidst other product launches in the years to come, which comes after leaving iMac clients a little bit underwhelmed with the changes that have been made.
Tech Crunch managed to get a hold of a post on a message board of an employee at Apple, and the exec wrote a long note in a bid to solve the concerns about the iMac. According to Cook, people have already raised doubts regarding on how committed they are to developing desktops.
To clear this doubt, he states that they are in talks of creating a whole new line of desktops and that there is nothing to be worried about when it comes to the priorities of Apple set for them. Moreover, Cook has emphasized Apple's initiatives to brainstorm for new and innovative products, as well as their unceasing quest for great ideas and potentials that could be used elsewhere.
