Report: iMac with upgraded screen, processor could arrive soon

If you're looking to buy a new iMac, you might want to hold off just a bit.

Apple is reportedly gearing up to launch upgraded iMacs with improved displays and processors, according to an industry note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The company is expected to sell 1 million iMacs in the third quarter with this upgrade.

This news comes from AppleInsider, which obtained the note to investors from the ever-accurate Kuo.

We haven't heard too much about the Apple desktop computer since the launch of the 27-inch 5K iMac, which hit the market last year. Meanwhile, Apple updated its full iMac lineup in September 2013 and launched a lower-spec budget iMac in June 2014.

However, a recent leak from Apple display supplier LG indicated an iMac with an 8K display could be a possibility. A 4K display could be coming for the 21.5-inch iMac, as indicated by a line of code in an OS X El Capitan beta, according to a report.

While an 8K display may seem unnecessary, a retina display for the smaller iMacs seems like an obvious move for Apple. Many of its core products now come with a retina display, with smaller iMacs a notable holdout.

As 9to5Mac states, back-to-school buying season is well underway, so it would make sense for Apple to bring out an upgraded iMac to appeal to students and institutions. Apple has also announced a back-to-school promotion for a free pair of Beats Solo 2 headphones with the purchase of a new Mac.

While we may soon find out more about Apple's iMac plans, display and processor upgrades would be a welcomed move.
