We could see the i Mac 2018 coming out sooner, however – if Apple is planning to do something special to mark the 20th anniversary of the i Mac, then a release date in August could be possible – as it will be exactly 20 years since the launch of the original.
Again, there’s not much to go on right now concerning what the price of a 2018 i Mac might be.
And, knowing Apple, we’re sure that it’s going to want to celebrate in some kind of commercially available way – so keep an eye out for some kind of special anniversary i Mac.
It shouldn’t come as a shock that Apple is keeping its mouth shut about the i Mac 2018.
While we love the look of the i Mac, it’s sort of had the same design for the past 10 years, so 2018 could be a great year to tweak the look.
That could mean a minor revision, such as slimming the body even further, or something more drastic.
Even better for photographers and filmmakers is if Apple allowed UHS-II SD card support, thereby streamlining the post-production process.
We’d love to see the i Mac 2018 toting some of the very latest, and best, components when it’s revealed to the world.Oh, and did we mention we’d really like to see a Space Gray i Mac?Whilst we’re getting ideas from other Apple devices, there’s a few things we’d like to see from the i Phone and Mac Book appear in the i Mac 2018.For example, how cool would it be if the Touch Bar from certain Mac Books turned up on a redesigned i Mac keyboard?Those touch-sensitive buttons would be a fantastic addition.Rumors of an i Mac redesign have been swirling since a post on Reddit, apparently by a ‘Foxconn Insider’ who worked for the company that builds the devices for Apple, claimed there would be an update to the i Mac and its peripherals.Color-wise, the aluminum design of the i Mac has been a staple since 2007, so we wouldn’t mind seeing another color option with the i Mac 2018 – perhaps a Space Gray version, like the i Mac Pro?The i Mac 2018 could use a refresh – short after the most recent model hit the market, packed with 7th-generation Kaby Lake processors, Intel released its 8th-generation Kaby Lake R and Coffee Lake processors.So, the i Mac is currently one generation behind the competition when it comes to hardware – but we think the i Mac 2018 will remedy this situation.For any gadget, 20 years in the business is a big deal, so we’d love to see Apple do something special to mark the anniversary for this year’s i Mac.Apple have released special versions of its hardware to mark milestones before, such as the Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh, which was released in 1997 to mark Apple’s 20th birthday.
