Apple iMac 2017 To Offer VR Support & 5K Display, Release Slated For March
There has not been a lot of buzz on a new iMac model, but the general opinion is that the product line definitely needs a refresh. There are, however, some reports that indicate the desktop is going to come through within the month, with a 5K display and a virtual reality feature as well.
As International Business Times AU has noted, the latest iMac model was released in October 2015. Since then, there has been no official news on the next generation. A refresh has actually been talked about and the release was expected to come in within the first quarter. With a few days left before the end of March, the publication argued that a release is still possible.
Reportedly, the iMac will arrive powered by the Intel Kaby Lake i7-7700K processor and will be fitted with a DisplayPort 1.2, Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 port. The unit is estimated to have a 27 inch screen and an AMD Polaris 10 graphics chip. It was also noted that the iMac 2017 might sport a 5K display and virtual reality features as well.
Since it has been some time since Apple refreshed its iMac line, many have questioned whether or not the Cupertino-based tech giant had any plans of doing so. But in a report by Tech Crunch last year, CEO Tim Cook made it clear that the desktop was still a priority for the company. Cook told audiences that the iMac was still very strategic for the company. “It’s unique compared to the notebook because you can pack a lot more performance on a desktop,” he said.
Cook then went on to claim that the company has big plans for the iMac 2017 and that no one should question their dedication to the product. However, he did not provide specific details. But with a statement as strong as that, it is unlikely that Apple will take the upgrade lightly.
