iMac 2015 Features, Specs & Release Date Rumors: Large 5K Apple Desktop To Sport Pro 6200 Chipset, Bluetooth Remote Control?


iMac, Apple Inc.'s flagship computer is reportedly getting a make-over for the year 2015. With the company dominating the gadget industry, it's just right that their all-in-one desktop computer gets the upgrade it deserves.

According to MacWorld, the MacBook lineup got its update last March, while some of the iMac models were launched in May.

However, before May of this year, It has been almost two years since Apple last updated the iMac. According to iSchoolGuide, rumors are circulating that Apple will launch a brand new iMac that is fitted with a 4K Retina Display Screen.

Hidden within the beta for El Capitan, the French website Consomac has discovered a code that points to a new 4K iMac with a 21.5-inch screen is on its way. El Capitan is Apple's new major upgrade for its iMac computer lineup.

Images of a new 5K iMac also surfaced which further fuelled speculations that Apple will update its current 27-inch iMac. Last October of 2014, Apple Inc. released 27-inch Retina iMac models. The computer boasts a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, a 1 terabyte fusion drive and an AMD Radeon R9 M290x graphics set. The rest of the iMac lineup however, was left untouched.

In addition to the new 4K panel reference, the new line of iMacs are reportedly also receiving new graphic processors from Intel, called the Iris Pro 6200, 9to5Mac has learned.

According to AppleInsider, the new iMac will allow videographers to edit 4K videos at full-screen resolution.

Another reason for Apple fanatics to get excited is the development of a Bluetooth-operated remote control that supports infrared and multi-touch features. Tech professionals are speculating that this new addition to Apple products is connected to the update of the Apple TV.

The new line of iMacs are reportedly to hit the shelves of Apple stores this coming September, along with the same Apple iPhone launch event.
