Release Date

The next generation iMac was expected last year but Apple only introduced its new line of MacBooks including one with the new Touch Bar feature. Apple also unveiled the Apple TV at the time. The last time Apple rolled out a new iMac was back in 2015. At the time, the company updated its line of small desktops with the Retina screen while the larger models were given the latest Skylake processor. Since then, there has been nothing new on the iMac front. But if the recent spate of rumors proves true, expect a new iMac by March of this year.
