Fresh rumours from the Apple front: the Asian media suggest that the new line of iMacs will be unveiled in June. According to Economic Daily News, quoted by DigiTimes, sources from Apple's supply chain point to an earlier release date than analysts were expecting.
The new line of iMac products will reportedly be powered by Intel's new chips, Core i5 and Core i7, both based on the new Ivy Bridge architecture.
Reports say that we are going to know more about Ivy Bridge by the end of this month when Intel plans the official release.
In addition to the new processors, the revamped iMacs are supposed to be thinner and to feature an anti-reflective glass. Currently, Apple only offered anti-reflective glass as an option for MacBooks.
The June unveil of iMacs would be consistent with a yearly update. The last time Apple released a new line of iMacs was last May. At the time, the company added an enhanced Face Time camera and high speed Thunderbolt ports.
DigiTimes also suggests that Apple is going to release the new line of MacBook Pro notebooks, also featuring Ivy Bridge processors at the end of the second quarter.
