Apple has some significant changes lined up for the 2021 iMac and the small Mac Pro models. Jon Prosser, a well-known YouTuber and somewhat reliable tipster, has released a new video talking about what to expect from these new products. The latest leaks also corroborate many of the previous claims about Apple's plans for the Mac lineup.
Starting with iMacs, Prosser claims that the 2021 iMac model will arrive in a total of five color options. These options will be the same as the iPad Pro i.e. Silver, Space Gray, Green, Sky Blue, and Rose Gold. It should be noted that these color variants are still in the prototype stage which means there is no guarantee if Apple would actually launch any or all of them in the market. If they do end up becoming official, they will surely trigger some nostalgia as you might remember the original iMac from decades ago was released in a bunch of colors.
Prosser was also quick to make it clear that the 2021 iMac renders shown by him in the video are purely based on speculations. He is yet to see the actual rear panel design. However, we have already heard rumors that Apple is working on a major 2021 iMac redesign. It is said to be inspired by the Pro Display XDR as well as the new iPad Air.
Next up, Apple also has a smaller version of Mac Pro underworks whose commercial name is unknown. Prosser says he has been told that the device will look like older Apple G4 cubes. Another way to describe the design is by imagining three to four Mac Mini units stacked on top of each other.
