New models of the iMac and Mac mini could be on the horizon, according to previously-reliable leaker CoinX. The cryptic tweet simply mentions the iMac and Mac mini next to a "soon" arrow emoji, with no further details shared.

Apple last refreshed its regular iMac lineup in March 2019 with up to 8-core 9th-gen Intel Core processors and Radeon Pro Vega graphics options, while the Mac mini was last updated in October 2018 with up to 6-core 8th-gen Intel Core processors, USB-C ports, and a new Space Gray color option.

iMac and Mac mini rumors have been slim, but analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently said a new iMac Pro will launch in the fourth quarter of 2020 with a Mini-LED backlit display. Apple has not updated the iMac Pro since it was first released in December 2017, a span of over 800 days, as noted in the MacRumors Buyer's Guide.


March is a common month for Apple product refreshes. The updated iMac and Mac mini models could be announced in a press release at any time.

CoinX has an accurate track record, having previously leaked the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR names before anyone else, the "Pro" branding for iPhone 11 models, the 10.2-inch iPad and 10.5-inch iPad Air, and many other minor details about unreleased Apple products. It is unclear who runs the Twitter account.

I'll bite on the Mac mini if they stop with the soldered-on storage.

I'd really like to see a Mac mini with accessible (and user-upgradable) internal storage & RAM. The RAM on the current one can be done but it's not as simple as spinning off the bottom anymore.

I'd also like a unicorn, as long as I'm wishing for things that I won't ever see.

Assuming Comet Lake for iMac, the CPUs are expected as soon as this month. The CPUs for the iMac Pro were announced already, maybe they’re already shipping.

Anyway, I’d guess WWDC but the rumored March event would be nice. The real question is whether it’ll be a redesign or not.

Lets hope the imac will get an inside out redesign, for better thermals and no more fusion drives with those 5400rpm, go all in SSD
For the entry level Apple can go with previous gen ssd just to keep the entry price low, but god...even an 5 year old ssd is far better than fusion drive
So no fusion drive ...we are in 2020

"The real question is whether it’ll be a redesign or not."

Doubt it.
