Mark Gurman, an Apple tracker, has reported that the new device is currently undergoing final testing and may be released as soon as the latter half of this year.

According to a report by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple is preparing to release a new iMac in the second half of this year. The upcoming model is expected to feature the same 24-inch display size as its predecessor, but it will be equipped with a more powerful M3 chip made using a 3nm process.

Gurman notes that the new iMac is currently in an advanced stage of development, and production tests are being conducted. However, it is not expected to enter mass production for at least three months. The new iMac will reportedly be available in the same color options as the previous model, including blue, silver, pink, and orange.

Gurman also reveals that some of the iMac's internal components will be relocated and redesigned, and the production process for mounting the iMac's stand to the display will be different. The iMac lineup has not been refreshed for two years, and the 2021 model was the first to feature Apple's in-house silicon, a larger display, and new color options.

In addition to the new iMac, Gurman reports that Apple is preparing to launch an upgraded 13-inch MacBook Air, a new 15-inch MacBook Air, and a Mac Pro equipped with an M2 Ultra chip. Gurman speculates that it may make sense for Apple to include an M3 chip in the 13-inch MacBook Air as well, while reserving the M2 chip for the larger 15-inch model.

Apple is expected to showcase its new M3 chip at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June, where it may also reveal its highly-anticipated mixed-reality headset. All in all, it looks like it will be a busy year for Apple.
