New iMac With M2 Chip Seemingly Missing From Apple's Plans – MacRumors

An updated version of the 24-inch iMac with the M2 chip is seemingly missing from Apple’s plans, according to forecasts from Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman.

Apple introduced the 24-inch ‌iMac‌ in April last year, featuring the M1 chip and a striking ultra-thin design in a range of color options. Amid the launch of the first Macs with the M2 chip this summer, the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the redesigned MacBook Air, questions around whether the 24-inch ‌iMac‌ could get a similar upgrade with the ‌M2‌ chip have begun to emerge, especially now that it is over a year old.
An ‌iMac‌ with the ‌M2‌ chip was missing from Gurman’s forecast of upcoming ‌M2‌ Macs on Apple’s product road map, which includes new Mac mini models with ‌M2‌ and ‌M2‌ Pro chips, new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with ‌M2‌ Pro and ‌M2‌ Max chips, and a new Mac Pro tower with ‌M2‌ Ultra and “M2 Extreme” chips.
Following the launch of the ‌M2‌ series of Macs, Gurman said a new ‌iMac‌ will be among the first M3 series of Macs, which will include an updated 13-inch ‌MacBook Air‌, an all-new 15-inch ‌MacBook Air‌, and potentially a new 12-inch notebook that is “still in early development.” The device is expected to be a direct successor to the current ‌M1‌ ‌iMac‌ and may not launch until late 2023 at the earliest, according to Gurman, suggesting that there is no M2-based ‌iMac‌ on the way.
The M3 chip is expected to be built on TSMC’s 3nm technology, unlike the ‌M1‌ and ‌M2‌, which are built using a 5nm process. The more advanced manufacturing process is expected to bring significant performance and efficiency improvements. Apple is also believed to be working on a high-end iMac model that uses chips from the ‌M3‌ series.
It is not clear why Apple would exclude the ‌iMac‌ from the ‌M2‌ chip and not update it until the ‌M3‌ chip is available, especially since this means that the current ‌M1‌ model would be around for a considerable amount of time.
