Digitimes is reporting, based on their sources in Apple’s supply chain, that suppliers have started shipping an all new iMac along with a 13.3 inch MacBook Pro with a Retina Display.
Rumors surrounding both products have been circulating with greater frequency over the past few weeks and the report claims that they will both launch in either September or October to “target back-to-school demand and the year-end holidays.”
As for the iMac, Apple originally planned to release three new models with upgraded panels and CPUs, but due to poor yields of the panels, the mass production of the high-end model, has been postponed, without any launch schedule. The other two models – targeting the mid-range and entry-level segments – saw shipment volumes from the supply chain increase in September.
Just a few days ago we also reported on how new iMac models recently began appearing in Geekbench bench marks. The rumored iMac, with the model noted as iMac13,2, reportedly sports quad core Intel i7 clocked at 3.5GHz.
Apple last refreshed its iMac line back in May 2011.
