Apple Will Not Debut New iMac, 8GB iPhone 5s at WWDC




Notable Apple journalist Jim Dalrymple -- known for his "Yep" and "Nope" confirmations on Apple rumors -- today indicated that Apple will not be introducing a new iMac or a lower-capacity 8GB iPhone at Monday's Worldwide Developers Conference.

Dalrymple's most recent "Nope" is in response to a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who suggested earlier today that Apple would debut both hardware products at WWDC. According to Kuo, Apple had plans to launch an 8GB iPhone designed for emerging markets and a lower-cost iMac.

While an iMac update might not be imminent, there have been a few hints that a refresh is in the works for a later date, including a reference to new iMac models in the OS X 10.9.4 beta released to developers today.

It remains unclear whether the eventual iMac update will include a price drop, but it is not out of the question given the $100 price cut on the recently updated MacBook Airs.

Thank god we aren't getting another 8GB iPhone. 8GB in this era is nothing but a waste and quite laughable.

Very happy that the 8GB 5S isn't going to happen. Let's move up to 32/64/128GB across the board Apple, it's about time.

With the Beats acquisition a done deal, I am sure this was part of their Plan B keynote that is now dead and buried in a cubical inside Infinite Loop One.

Time for Dre and company to take stage of Moscone West for the kickoff and the inevitable Dr. Dre house party at a venue near Moscone at a real warehouse south of Market. It'll be the geekiest show Dre ever spun.

I think he was saying there's not going to be a low-cost iMac, but there is still a possibility of updated iMacs.

The post he said nope to specifically said cheaper iMac.

I guess I should complain considering it's called MacRumors and not MacFacts.

If this were the case, the title would be "Apple Will Not Debut Lower-Cost iMac, 8GB iPhone 5s at WWDC, however Costlier iMac Models Expected Instead".

In this case Jim Dalrymple's assertion seems to make more sense, if for no other reason than with all the current expectations for the keynote, there sure seems to be an awful lot of ground to cover in about two hours…..

Those iMac updates are undoubtedly in the works, but perhaps for a later timeframe.

I logged in for the first time in months to note the burn that Kuo just received.

Ps. I'm for the Beats deal. And called it that it would remain on Android.

Very surprised and sad that the design team deal is broken (forget the name) and that Apple would take over design. I mean that cool and all but wouldn't you keep the original design team/ company? Absorb them?

Anyway gg macrumors

My point is that his response is too vague to indicate whether there will be no iMacs at all or no lower cost iMac.

Who cares about the iMac or the 8GB 5s iPhone ask Jim Dalrymple about something interesting like "Home Control"!

He doesn't seem to take requests, unfortunately.

I would have thought that an iMac refresh being in the works for some future date was a pretty safe bet, even without any reference in the beta.
