Report: New iMac Coming In October
If anything can steal at least some attention away from Apple's 6th generation iPhone this October.... it will be another Apple product.
According to the latest supply chain chatter burning up the blogosphere, Apple is about to put into production the next-generation iMac. And this beauty could be ready to roll out as soon as October, just as Apple will be pushing out a new iPhone and possibly other refreshed products.
Well-placed and knowledgeable sources speaking with DigiTimes say that the new iMac, which is set to begin production in earnest before the end of July, will include Retina Display. Apple has given us no previous clues as to the next iMac possibly featuring Retina Display, but Apple clearly loves ramping up the high resolution display of its many products. So if this happens, it shouldn't come as a great shocker.
"The sources pointed out that Apple is pushing Retina Display for its products in hoping to surpass its competitors in terms of screen resolution since most other notebook and tablet PC vendors are still adopting Full HD display for their products," DigiTimes reports.
So, in one regard, the sources are confirming that which we already know. Apple simply wants to gut the competition by getting so far ahead of the nearest rivals that playing catch-up will almost be too tall of an order for most, let alone actually surpassing Apple.
