The iMac 2021 is without a doubt the Mac of this year. Its 24 inches replace the entry-level and smaller model, so that almost immediately attention shifted to its logical evolution: another iMac awesome. now him twitter Dylandkt has announced that this big iMac will not see the light of day until 2022, delaying a release that some rumors have placed at the end of this 2021.
Redesigned, oversized iMac on its way to 2022
Many users have praised the new redesigned iMac 2021. However, there will always be those looking for the model with the larger screen. Until now, it is the 27 inch of the previous generation
Therefore, many are expecting a bigger one with an M1 processor or its successor. Well, users looking for this rumored model received hope from the twitter dylandkt:
Just to explain those wondering, the top-of-the-line iMac isn’t expected to release in Q4 alongside the other M1X Macs. Apple just doesn’t want their devices to compete for attention and delays in product releases have led to this timeline.

According to him, the high-end iMac will arrive in 2022. By way of explanation, he assures that this iMac will not come with other Mac M1X
Apple wouldn’t want these new Macs to take center stage when they launch. Reason why the company would have delayed the launch of this oversized iMac. The Twitter user simply lists 2022 as the launch date, without providing further details.
A bigger iMac that conquers Apple’s silicon frontiers
The new iMac 2021 was a complete stop in the 23 years of iMac evolution. After a decade with virtually no change, Apple put all the meat on the spit and completely redesigned the equipment. Much of the blame lies with the M1 chip, the first Apple Silicon processor to reach Macs.
It makes sense to think that a larger and superior model will follow the same design pattern. No big changes to expect, with the exception of a larger screen size and, perhaps, the integration of Face ID into the Mac. Where there is room for improvement is precisely in its processor.
At the M1X already mentioned by the end of this year, we would expect an evolution of it. A chip that was a simple evolution with higher clock power or a new generation. That is, an M2 with more CPU and GPU cores, as well as a few other surprises.
Apple has promised a transition to the new architecture in just two years. With half of the teams already at Apple Silicon, high-end models are missing join the new family. And, among them, this new big iMac. All should be ready by mid-2022 at the latest.
