After raising the prices of digital content like apps and games in many markets late last year, Apple followed yesterday’s event by hiking the prices of its hardware, too. In numerous countries, Macs, iOS devices, iPods, and more are now a little pricier than they were yesterday.
The arrival of Apple’s 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display wasn’t a big surprise when it’s all said and done, but a welcomed product nonetheless. Unfortunately, it’ll be missing one thing right out of the box.
A growing number of users have been hoping for a high-resolution desktop-class display from Apple over the years. While I was personally wanted to see a high-resolution Thunderbolt Display released, the announcement of the all-new iMac with Retina 5K display was equally, if not more, impressive than what I expected from Apple this afternoon.
Retina iMac currently in late-stage testing, could launch alongside OS X Yosemite according to new report
Rumors of an iMac with a Retina display measuring in at 27-inches have been swirling for some time now, with the most recent surfacing earlier in September. Now, a new report suggests that Apple could be gearing up to launch the new desktop sooner, rather than later.
Following a reference to a mid-2014 model Mac mini that was recently uncovered on an Apple support page for Boot Camp, and later removed, it has now been reported that a mid-2014 model 27-inch iMac was also briefly listed on the same page. Apple has yet to release a new Mac mini or 27-inch iMac this year, hinting that updates could be on the horizon.
