You might have been fooled into thinking there had been a new Mac Pro released after WWDC, which is even more confusing considering you can see Mac Pro under the “New to the Store” section on the Apple Store. This update had just been a minor refresh for the Mac Pro, which doesn’t even include the new Xeon E5 chip launched 3 months ago, and the iMac hasn’t seen a refresh in 2012 so far.
The need for a new iMac in 2012 with Retina is clear and after the MacBook Pro received the Retina display it seems like a natural upgrade for the iMac this year. One-way to find out more is to contact Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, directly and ask when the new Mac Pro and iMac will arrive? While most of us would never expect a reply to an email, it seems one reader of MacRumors did just this and got a response explaining Apple are “working on something” and it will be coming in 2013.
The email in question only explains Apple is working on “something really great” for the Mac Pro, and there is no mention of the iMac, so this could mean a new iMac in 2012 or even a delay until 2013.
Would you like to see a new iMac in 2012 with a Retina display? The good news is those that were thinking Apple’s Mac Pro would be discontinued can relax now, although this depends on the authenticity of one MacRumors reader.
