Apple is reportedly planning to release a new iMac model called the “iMac Pro” in 2022 that will feature its latest and greatest chips, the M1 Pro and M1 Max. The rumor comes from leaker dylandkt, who shared a list of purported features that include a 27-inch mini-LED display with ProMotion technology, dark bezels, and a base configuration with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. The “Pro” name was supposedly chosen as a means of differentiating it from the 24-inch iMac, which debuted this year.

From MacRumors’ coverage:
We haven’t heard much about Apple’s larger iMac, but Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has confirmed that such a machine is in the works. Apple reportedly paused work on the bigger iMac to work on the 24-inch model, but now that the 24-inch iMac is out, development can resume.
Display analyst Ross Young has also said that Apple is working on a new 27-inch iMac with a mini-LED display and ProMotion display technology.
The new 24-inch iMac that Apple announced in April features an M1 chip, 4.5K Retina display, and a new compact design that’s available in a rainbow assortment of colors. It starts at $1,299.
