We're not expecting new Macs to debut at Apple's upcoming "California Streaming" event, but according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple is making one small tweak to its Mac sales plans.

After the September 14 event, Apple retail stores will begin selling the 24-inch iMac in all colors, which will mean all seven colors will be able to be purchased in store.

Right now, Apple's retail stores only offer the iMac in green, pink, blue, and silver. The yellow, orange, and purple colors cannot be purchased in stores and must be ordered online.

The change will make it easier for customers who want one of the more unusual iMac colors to get an iMac right away without having to wait for shipping. It may also mean that third-party stores will be able to carry additional colors, as retailers like Best Buy have also been limited to green, pink, blue, and silver.

There are highly anticipated redesigned 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that are in the works, but unfortunately, we are not expecting these new machines at the September event. Instead, Apple will likely hold a second October and/or November event that will focus on Macs and iPads.

Is there a matching apple decal for the chin? Maybe with a handy alignment template?

Its not a rip off, its just a indication that the larger 30" or 32" iMac will be that much more expensive to buy. Try pricing the M1 13" MBP, it gets to be pretty expensive also. A 13" M1 MBP with 16GB RAM and 1 TB is $1899 as a example.
poster is saying the 8/7 model is a ripoff, go with the lowest tier 8/8 instead.

Yellow, orange and purple are not "unusual" colours.
It is better to call them unique.

The Apple store at the Century City Mall in Los Angeles had an orange iMac on display last weekend, fwiw.

When the heck are they going to release the successor to the 27"?

I set up a 24" M1 iMac to replace a 27" iMac for a professor at work today, and it felt like a baby Mac compared to what it replaced. The professor even seemed unsure as he was starting to use it, even though he himself requested it.

It's really annoying that upgrading to a new M1 iMac right now means a reduction in screen size. That really shouldn't be the case! C'mon Apple.

Finally now people can get the other 24" iMac colors besides blue and silver easier.
That might be news for ALL stores but the Apple Store I live near in California offers all the colors for view and purchase. Been that way for over a month.

What’s the big whoops. They have zero in stock for pickup in the entire SoCal metro area. Bought mine from the refurb site, got it in 3 days. Amazon also has in stock for immediate shipment.

Now you can get all the colors “out of stock.” WooHoo!

Patience, guy. Rome wasn't built in a day.
