    Just the same single rumour posted everyday about October. Each article just copies the last one and they generally read like they were written by a bot. For what it's worth I asked an Apple core sales specialist yesterday and he told me probably not until next year. I think if we don't get something more specific in the next two weeks then it will probably be a long wait.

    Thanks for your information. I also searched rumors on google and twitter, they are almost the same. They even quote Tim Cook's email as "iMac will release soon, stay tuned."
    New Intel chip release date unclear, I think that's why iMac release date unclear.

    Nope, Apple has done a good job keeping things close their vest

    Has anyone taken a look at Best Buy this morning? There is a new imac showing a 7th generation processor.

    Here it is, since its reporting with a M380, I think its a typo on the processor

    No hardware leaks surprisingly. It's not as proliferated as the iPhone is.

    Put it this way, to maintain their credibility, Apple have to release new Macs at the October event as it's their last opportunity for the next six months. The event is expected to be the 20th October.

    Last year they announced them around the same time and started shipping in late November / December I believe. Good estimate.

    Well, there have been reports of support for AMDs latest RX 460, 470 and 480 cards found in Sierra. I'd expect to see the RX 470 in the new iMac when it comes out.

    iMacs are released every October, has been that way for multiple years (check google).

    Instead of speculating, there was already a leaked report that has told us it will be happening. here it is

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...repare-ipad-upgrades-and-refreshed-mac-lineup

    I would be shocked if they don't put out a new one. B&H isn't ordering any new iMacs anymore, Apple took the new label off of all of the current iMac line, all the signs are there.

    I'm very confident that it will happen.

    Probably because the new iMacs will look like the old iMacs.

    The MacBook Pro is getting a case change (the OLED strip), so that was leaked.

    Apple often release updated macs with no announcement, so if they do no redesign on the iMac (which is highly likely) then they will just update the internals ship them to their stores and do a press release, often called a silent update they happen frequently. This can happen at any time.

    The MacBook pros on the other hand are almost certainly getting a redesign so they will probably be announced in an event.

    Given the lack of Kaby Lake processors for the iMac and the fact the 27" iMac is on Skylake, I fully expect to see a minor update to the iMac line. the 21" should hopefully get to skylake, but the 27" will not see too much love

    The 27 should get new Polaris graphics, far more important than kaby lake which is just Intel releasing something every year rather than any great improvement over skylake.
