    is there any reason that we would get an update on iMac in the fall or because it was refreshed few months ago then we won't see anything until next year?
    We should be getting some GPU updates soon so maybe that + .....?

    Or is this fall going to be just iPhone and AWatch? (possibly iPads)

    What do you guys think?

    Selfishly, I hope not. I just dropped $2k+ on a 2019 iMac. I'd be mad as heck if they did a new model revision in the fall.

    I understand. I selfishly want them to update it as I don't really like the outdated gpus they are offering. I was also hoping for iMac Pro cooling but that might be a stretch

    I would hope for the new Radeon XT upgrades, but what processor would they move to? Intel isn't producing much these days.

    I'm thinking the next iMac will likely be a design. The iMac is beginning to look a little long in the tooth, as far as cosmetics. Time to change/update the iMac.

    I think so but in that case I doubt we will see it this year.

    I think an updated design is likely, but I don't think it is likely until Apple has new CPUs and GPUs to put in it. AMD's new GPUs are coming very soon, but Intel is still behind on their schedule.

    Intel is always behind so I think just stick the 9th generation (as they have now) with better gpus, maybe redesign and better specs could be enough :)

    Expect? No.

    Is it possible? Sure.

    While it happened in 2013, that has been the exception - more recently the iMac was updated in 2015, 2017, and now 2019. So 2 updates, particularly a redesign, seem unlikely given Apple's recent iMac track record.

    Yes except it's unlikely Apple would bring a whole new iMac to market without updating the processors to the next generation. I anticipate a big refresh for the next gen next year.

    Do you know when Intel is meant to give us new CPUs, please?

    I reckon that we've seen all the "new iMacs" that we're going to see in 2019.
    I could be wrong.

    It's hard to say. The first Ice Lake chips coming out this year are mobile chips, with nothing beyond an i7 that I could find. They won't start to become popular until early next year. A next-gen CPU equivalent to the current 8-Core i9 isn't on the immediate horizon until Comet Lake Q2 of next year, approximately. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I hope they update the iMac Pro at least.

    This graph shows that the biggest change to the iMac 5K in 2015 comes only 147 days after the predecessor. This is less than half a year so we might see a new iMac this year. After Apple introduces a 32" 6K display with the Mac Pro they might bring a 6K iMac with a little lower specced 32" display and a new design....

    I just wonder if history is gonna repeat itself like how the Thunderbolt Display was released July 2011 but the new iMac design wasn’t until late 2012...so do we really not see a redesign iMac or iMac Pro until late 2020.
