An upgraded 24-inch iMac is part of Apple's planned October Mac rollout

According to Mark Gurman, a new 24-inch iMac and new MacBook Pros might be introduced during a launch event this month.



The debut of an Apple product has been the subject of contradictory speculations this month; nevertheless, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman now claims that the October event is scheduled and may include a long-overdue iMac improvement. According to sources close to Apple, a 24-inch iMac is expected to go on sale this month, according to Gurman's story in the Power On newsletter. Gurman speculates that we could also see some new MacBook Pros based on available retail stock and estimated ship dates for specific models.


Gurman noted that "Apple retail stores are in short supply of the iMac, as well as the 13-inch MacBook Pro and high-end MacBook Pro — two other models that may be due for a refresh," adding that current delivery estimates for these devices imply delays until November. This, together with the fact that the company's earnings call was held in November rather than October this year, implies Apple has something planned. Gurman hypothesizes that the launch might occur on October 30 or 31.


Since the 24-inch M1 iMac was released in April 2021 and hasn't received any updates, it might benefit from a refresh. It's also time to update the 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro, which debuted in June 2022. Apple's previous month's iPhone-focused speech, featuring two Apple Watch announcements and final release information for the most recent iOS, macOS, and watchOS, was devoid of any mention of Mac news. Apple frequently chooses October deliberately for its distinct releases of Mac news.
