  • Latest OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta Hints at 4k Display Coming to 21.5-inch iMac

    Seemingly confirming our report yesterday that a faster, higher resolution iMac would be coming to shelves near you later this year, Consomac has revealed that the latest OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta, seeded to developers yesterday, includes some details about a possible retina 4k display in a future 21.5-inch iMac computer. Tweaks to the current 27-inch 5k retina display iMacs are also present in the new beta operating system seed.

    Assuming this code means Apple is serious about making this type of an upgrade, this would be the first time that the 21-5-inch iMac has ever received a major display upgrade, since to this date, only the 27-inch iMac has been given a super high resolution 5k retina display. With the 4k display, it would have a resolution of about 40962304, as MacRumors notes.

    It's also very likely that the computer would get an upgraded processor and GPU to compliment the additional pixels in the display, which further fuels evidence that Apple would upgrade the processors in the iMacs to the 'Broadwell' or even 'Skylake' Intel processors, giving them significant speed boosts in addition to efficiency.

    Still, everything has yet to be confirmed by an official announcement or release by Apple, and these machines are unlikely to see the light until after the OS X 10.11 El Capitan release this Fall.
