Most of those are what I would consider minor, I expect USB-C at some point, faster ram, will possibly occur when they change chipsets, nothing really mind blowing though.update the speakers for example, update the I/O replacing the usb to usb-c gen 2
make the ram faster so there is a must updates for late this year to keep the imacs in late with the present tech
yes minor update, they can do it even without an event, silent update
yeah. exactlyPure-SSD across the line might be asking too much, but they should have the 1TB Fusion drive (even with the measly 24GB SSD) as the entry-level option (with larger Fusion and pure SSDs as options). That way end-users get some benefit for things like faster boot and faster loading of their most-commonly
Yes, the 512GB SSD is just too expensive to justify my expense, plus for my case, it would be too small to hold my data, so why spend all that money and still need an external drive.so I sadly think they will remain expensive options. Right now Apple charges a $200 upgrade for 256Gb SSD in the 22" iMac and $500 for 512Gb SSD upgrade in the 27" iMac
At least for the 2015 models, the flash portion of the Fusion drive is 128GB for 2 and 3 TB drives, only the 1TB drive has the meager flash allotment.Apple's recently made the SSD part of Fusion drives smaller

Indeed. Apple clearly knows users don't consider iMacs portable, so extra thickness ( such as found in a 2011 iMac ) to help dissipate heat wouldn't dissuade iMac desktop user purchases. The current iMac, while cooler than its immediate predecessor, still runs hotter than I'd prefer. The Skylake change was key to running the current iMacs in a tolerable temperature range.
General consensus, nothing official.Who says the iMac won't get any updates until October?
Not likely, I'm in the crowd that says we'll not see a refresh until the fall. Apple just rolled out their Skylake 5k iMAcs and provided the 4k iMac last fall. I think doing anything on the iMac line tomorrow, is too premature. Plus does the current Skylake chipset have the fast iGPUs that are available on Broadwell? That's why the 21" iMacs didn't go to Skylake - no fast iGPUs. If that hasn't been rolled out yet, then that's another reason why its unlikely.I was hoping there might even be some ultra-slim chance the iMac might get TB3 tomorrow.
