A higher-end iMac with a 32-inch mini-LED display will be released in 2025, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo doesn't specify, but this machine can be positioned as a iMac Pro” to replace the 2017 model, which Apple discontinued two years ago.
There have been many rumors about a larger iMac over the past couple of years, but information has been mixed up with standalone display options and products that Apple eventually shelved, leading to some confusion as to whether and when we'll see a larger iMac option. 27-inch iMac was also canceled in 2022.
After the release of iMac The Pro was discontinued, Apple replaced it with the Mac Studio and a matching 27-inch Studio Display, and there was no sign of the larger iMac since then. That looks set to change in 2025, with Apple using the same mini-LED technology introduced in the more expensive Pro Display XDR.
The larger iMac with a diagonal of 32 inches; will have the same dimensions as the 6K Pro Display XDR, which Apple sells for $5,000. In terms of design, we could possibly see thinner bezels and a computer that will eventually be modeled after the Studio Display, with Apple eliminating the chin, but the rumors on this point are unclear.
