Another leaker suggests that the new iMacs won’t come out until August, and seems to suggest that there won’t be much of a redesign.

Latest iMac Pros & Cons

Apple’s latest iMac has been updated (March 2019), but it looks awfully similar to the previous update. Although, Apple has certainly managed to fit some newer and better components into the tiny space behind the iMac’s slim-designed screen 27″ screen.

iMac 2019

Cons

While Apple has been on top of the product-design market for years, their sleek iMac design doesn’t come without logistical caveats.

There is no touch screen option, unlike many other Apple products

The port placement is in the back of the monitor, which can be cumbersome

The speakers are on the rear, facing away from the user.

There is no way to raise or lower the display, only tilt.

Core features like wireless networking and Bluetooth could still use some upgrades

Pros

This 27-inch, 5K display with integrated CPU offers the most color-rich monitor available in the market today. Because the computing power is in the display, there is no tower to worry about. The keyboard and mouse plug into the back of the monitor. The iMac offers a significant speed bump over previous models, making it a strong alternative to Windows-based, All-in-One models. The Thunderbolt 3 ports provide 40Gbps data transfer, which is double the speed of previous iMac generations. Below are the product specifications, pros and cons of this device, and targeted uses for it.
