Rumors of a larger iMac destined for a 2022 launch keep coming and going and now Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has said something many of us have been thinking — that larger iMac will carry the ‘Pro’ name, bringing iMac Pro back to life.

Apple’s current 24-inch iMac comes with Apple’s M1 Apple silicon as well as some rather funky colors. While we might not get quite the same array of colorways, Gurman says that a design similar to that of the current iMac should probably be expected when writing in his weekly Power On newsletter.

“My expectation is that we’ll get a new model this year that is bigger than the current 24-inch design and branded as an iMac Pro. That would mean it has similar chips to the M1 Pro and M1 Max processors inside of the MacBook Pro. I’d also expect the new iMac Pro to have a similar design to the current M1 iMac.”

Gurman also believes that chips similar to the M1 Pro and M1 Max will be used, although it’s possible they will be upgraded M2 chips that are expected to get their debut in a new MacBook Air within the next few months.

Reports of a new 27-inch mini-LED screen, likely to be used in an iMac Pro, have surfaced of late but we heard last month that mini-LED is unlikely to be part of a 2022 iMac Pro.

Mini-LED or not, we can be sure that the new iMac Pro will be the best Mac for people who need as much grunt as possible while sitting at a desk.
