Apple could release its rumored 4K 21.5-inch iMac as soon as next week. According to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, the new desktop computer will hit stores on Tuesday, October 13 in limited quantities.
The company apparently plans to ramp up production on the refreshed iMac starting in November, so it may be hard to track one down until then. Apple may not actually change the design, though it’s allegedly bumping the resolution to 4096 x 2304 pixels and including a beefed up graphics card. The 4K model will also run OS X El Capitan out of the box and cost a bit more than the current version.
9to5Mac notes that Apple is also developing a new version of its Magic Mouse with Force Touch technology, along with an upgraded Bluetooth Keyboard with a better battery. However, it’s unclear if these accessories will be ready to launch alongside the new iMac.
It doesn’t sound like Apple is planning a formal event to announce the new 21.5-inch iMac, but we’ll keep an eye out for any more news or an official press release from the company.
