Apple’s next 24-inch iMac upgrade will likely come with the launch of the iPhone maker’s new M3 Apple Silicon processor, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who reports that an upgrade to the existing M1 24-inch iMac is unlikely to happen “until late 2023 or 2024 at the earliest.”

Described as a “spec-bump,” the new M3 24-inch iMac likely won’t bring any significant design changes over the 2021 M1 model, which received a major redesign over the previous Intel-based iMac lineup, launching with a much more compact and thin design and a range of colors.

Last year, Gurman said he expected the new M3 24-inch iMac to come in 2023, with the reporter now saying the machine likely won’t debut “until late 2023 or 2024 at the earliest,” suggesting the machine could make a debut in October when Apple typically announces updates to the Mac lineup, or in spring 2024, which would mark three years since the original M1 model was introduced.

In the same report, Gurman claims that Apple’s forthcoming M2 Pro and M2 Max MacBook Pro models will offer “marginal leaps from today’s MacBook Pro processors,” also claiming that Apple will reuse the design of its 2019 Mac Pro for its new 2023 Apple Silicon model, with the machine scrapping user-upgradeable RAM due to the all-on-chip architecture of the M2 Ultra processor.
