Apple is reportedly considering the addition of a 32-inch iMac with a mini LED display to its lineup in 2025, as reported by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. However, it’s currently unclear how Apple plans to position this particular model within its lineup.
But Kuo does note that it would be a high-end machine—potentially replacing the now-discontinued 27-inch iMac Pro from 2017. Notably, the 2017 model featured a 5K display and was positioned as a high-end machine.
Considering Kuo’s suggestion that the new 32-inch model may come with a mini-LED panel (a premium display technology)—it may become a powerful iMac option that the current lineup lacks.
Furthermore, the only iMac currently offered by Apple is the 24-inch iMac powered by the M1 chipset. This model is now over two years old and is due for an update with more recent internals. This could be one of the reasons why Apple is reportedly considering another iMac refresh—possibly in early 2024, according to Kuo.
That being said, Apple has completed its transition to its own M-series silicon and now offers a range of chipsets for different product classes. There is the M2-powered MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and even the Mac mini. In addition, there are high-end chipsets like the M2 Pro, M2 Max, and the M2 Ultra designed for Apple’s top-end devices, particularly for performance-intensive tasks. It remains to be seen which chipsets Apple will choose for the rumoured 24-inch iMac and the 32-inch model.
