After making sensational revelations about the upcoming iPhone 14’s displays and notch design, Ross Young has commented about the refreshed iMac Pro for 2022. According to the display analyst, the new iMac Pro will sport a mini LED display and will be powered by Apple’s own silicon.
Young expected the refreshed iMac Pro to launch during March-April in the US. But now, Young states that the mini LED display panels for the iMac Pro will start shipping in June. So, the actual launch of the product with Apple’s chipset may happen only in August or September.
According to Young, the workstation-grade computer by Apple will still make do with fewer mini LED zones than in other Apple products like the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro. This could be a deal-breaker for some.

Popular tipster, Mark Gurman, in his Power On newsletter, mentioned that he expects the new refreshed models to carry a similar design to the M1 powered iMac, albeit with a bigger 27-inch screen real estate.
The newsletter by Gurman reads-
My expectation is that we’ll get a new model this year that is bigger than the current 24-inch design and branded as an iMac Pro. That would mean it has similar chips to the M1 Pro and M1 Max processors inside of the MacBook Pro. I’d also expect the new iMac Pro to have a similar design to the current M1 iMac.
For those not in the know, Apple discontinued the Intel-powered iMac Pro last year. It seems that Apple is gearing up to launch the new iMac Pro powered by its own developed silicon like it is doing with its other devices in its portfolio.
On the one hand, Young’s report suggests that the new iMac Pro will go on sale in August-September. On the other hand, Gurman says that it could make an appearance during Apple’s Spring 2022 event, supposed to be held in March. Hence, we suggest you take these rumours with a grain of salt.
