There was an event in November last year. I think that anything could happen.
Sure, but since the new models are listed in the version of macOS coming out soon, I wouldn’t think we are waiting until November.
They don’t usually do new hardware at WWDC correct? So must be before then?
It’s usually not the case, but there have many counterexamples, so it’s honestly hard to make it a hard and fast rule.
Usually, hardware would rather be previewed during WWDC. I do believe we’ll see those Macs way before then, if only because iOS 14.5 seems close to release and Apple has a vested interest in making FaceID less troublesome to use in our masked times. Fingers crossed, yeah – April seems like a good bet.
I was using that date as an example.
Do you think the new Apple Silicon iMacs could possibly support Face ID?
I would really expect them to; Face ID probably needs to work in a unibody Mac (MBP or iMac) because of the secure connection required (compared to just having an external monitor with « some » cable attached to the computer); the M1 chip now has all the neural circuitry required for it. At the very least, it would surely seem like a major oversight to not do it.
That would be great, but have there been any actual rumors suggesting so?
On the contrary…
Indeed, you’re right no rumors point positively to that, unfortunately…
(Damnnn I really want cellular connectivity on a MBP…)
We can only dream…
I think so too. I don’t see why Apple wouldn’t unveil it at the event next week. I am very excited to see it be publicly unveiled!
Yup, I am calling it. New iMacs next week for sure.
All of these videos keep hyping me up. If we don’t see any new iMacs next week, I will be very disappointed and shocked. Other rumored products have also been keeping me hyped, but my primary focus is still on the new iMacs. I cannot stop talking about them!
