Code Points to an Upcoming Launch of Redesigned M1 iMacs

An unmanaged Apple iMac with an M-series processor may already be in the wild somewhere on a developer’s desk. Code crashing screenshots from Apple’s Xcode Integrated Development Environment recently obtained by 9to5Mac and point to the existence of an ARM-based iMac.

It is best to be taken lightly, but a new iMac has long been rumored for launch sometime in 2021. Some reports have also pointed to a redesigned model with flat back, new colors and thinner bezels. The fact that a developer is already in possession of the updated model may be evidence of an upcoming product launch.

XCode Crash Log

The screenshot of the code in question can be seen above, and 9to5Mac says that it has looked at the crash report file and confirmed that it actually happened on an ARM64 device. As you can see, it mentions the iMac under the device name and has an operating system version, as well as thread and binary information. No other information about the design or specs of the alleged iMac is available.

Xcode is commonly used by developers to code new applications for Apple’s Mac. This screenshot was originally shared on Twitter Developer Dennis Oberhoff, But 9to5Mac took a deep dive on the code and reported that the device is capable of taking device models before release, especially when Apple’s own engineering team tests third-party apps internally on the device. It may be that Apple was testing Dennis Oberhoff’s app on a new iMac somewhere in the world, but was careful not to mask its tracks.

Apple has already stopped selling versions of the 1080p 21.5-inch iMac with 512GB and 1TB SSDs on its website and has also discontinued the iMac Pro. It is not uncommon for Apple to stop selling older products before the refresh, and with this latest leak in Xcode, there is certainly a possibility that there is a new iMac.

An Apple Spring incident is also reportedly under way soon in time for the end of March or April. It would not be too surprising if Apple releases a new iMac at this event, although it usually holds separate events for iPad, iPhone and Mac launches. We will just have to wait and see, but there is a lot of hope on the horizon right now.
