- Reports suggest Apple will have new desktop PCs to showcase at its developer conference next week.
- The iMacs are said to feature Apple’s latest M2 Max and Ultra silicon.
- The company is also expected to reveal new notebooks at the event.
Apple is getting ready to host its annual developer conference, WWDC 2023 next week, which kicks off on 5th June. While software will be a big focus, the company is also expected to have some hardware to showcase too, which may include some new iterations of iMacs.
The company’s desktop PCs got a refresh in 2021, and this year we could see models sporting the latest silicon from Apple – the M2 Max and M2 Ultra. Both chipsets featured in updated MacBooks at the beginning of the year, and now other product lineups are primed to receive them.
This according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman (paywall), who is quickly becoming the go-to source for anything related to upcoming Apple hardware.
Gurman says the new iMacs with the M2 Max will reportedly sport eight high-performance cores, four efficiency cores, and 30 graphics cores. Added to this may be 96GB of RAM, with the desktop PCs running macOS 13.4, which would be Apple’s latest computing operating software.
As for the M2 Ultra variant, it may feature up to 16 high-performance cores, eight efficiency cores, and 60 graphics cores. Gurman also notes that a more powerful version with 76 graphics cores will be available too, along with configurations with in 64GB, 128GB, and 192GB of RAM.
While it remains to be seen if the report turns out to be true, Apple could have more than new iMacs on offer at WWDC 23 next week, with updates to the 15″ MacBook Air and a more “affordable” 13″ MacBook Pro also in the offing.
We won’t have to wait long though, with only a few more days to go before WWDC 23 kicks off.
