Rumor: Apple may launch an iMac with a 4K screen in October.

Today, Apple releases the OS X10. 10 Yosemite operative system in beta to the public, a new edition that brings important visual improvements. However, the official release of this operative system will not be until October, at which time there’s rumors that the company may launch also an iMac with a 4K resolution screen and a 12-inch MacBook Air with retina display.

It is logical that a company releases new equipment just as you renew the version of your operative system and when such is the case, it incorporates important visual improvements. However, what it doesn’t seem to be logical is that Apple will release new devices with the same hardware than the previous generation. What would make sense is to wait until the end of the year, when Intel finally releases its anticipated Broadwell generation. It is possible that Intel may be better than expected when making this generation of processors, but it seems unlikely. They are expected at the end of this year or beginning of next year.


The popular website 9to5Mac said that Apple will launch an iMac with a 4K resolution (or at least UHD) something that makes a lot of sense, considering the high resolutions which Apple has been working for quite some time. Their resolutions are supported since OS X 10.9.3

On the other hand, as we mentioned, there is a rumor of a hypothetical launch of a 12-inch MacBook Air with retina display, something that if produced after Intel already launches Broadwell, will allow that this devices to not have active cooling, that is, fanless (completely silent since there’s no fans) .
