#Apple #iMac – iMac 2016 Release Date, Specs, Features, News & Update: October Launch for AIO Desktop Confirmed? Device To Debut with MacBook Pro 2016! : Several reports suggest that following Apple’s September launch the company will once again hold a keynote presentation to introduce some of the products that weren’t introduced alongside the iPhone 7. A new iteration of the MacBook Pro is said to be one of those products, and so is the anticipated iMac 2016.
Rumor has it that Apple will host another launch event in October and will introduce iMac 2016. The device is also said to share the spotlight with the new MacBook Pro 2016.
If reports prove to be true, fans will see a new iMac this month. However, the Cupertino-based tech giant has remained silent about the product so it’s best to wait and see if the rumors are true.
Meanwhile, specs and features of the iMac 2016 have also been making the rounds. According to According to MacWorld UK, the all-in-one desktop computer will have an Intel processor onboard but there’s also a possibility that Apple will use AMD in some models. But the publication also noted that Intel has started Kaby Lake’s shipment so iMac could have this brand of chipset on board.
As for the graphics processing unit, most reports suggest that the iMac 2016 could have an AMD Polaris GPU. With this type of GPU, it is expected that the device will support Virtual Reality gaming and apps.
According to Enstarz, the VR-support coming from Apple would be unusual but this would be possible considering that the technology is starting to become mainstream.
Other reports also suggest that the iMac 2016 could boast an Ultra HD 5K display. As noted by iTechPost, Apple has a reputation of taking things to the next level just to stay on top of the competition. The 4K displays are now used in most displays, but if Apple wants to up its game, it would need to go a step further ahead of its competitors.
All the rumored specs and features of the iMac 2016 make the device appear even more interesting and impressive. However, readers should note that Apple hasn’t confirmed any of these reports yet. It’s still best to take the information with a pinch of salt. Source: Gamenguide
