Just yesterday we were telling you that the next iMac will have higher quality screens. And with the release of OS X El Capitan beta 6, references to the 21.5-inch iMac with 4K display continue to grow like foam in the bowels of the system. This would be the last to arrive at the Mac family, thus completing the entire showcase with Retina screens in the company’s computers .
This iMac would have 4096×2304 pixel resolution , as well as the option to scale the resolution as other Retina display Macs do. The icon that accompanies the file that provides the information is from an iMac that looks the same as the current ones, so we shouldn’t find any changes in this regard.
The panel definitions also provide references to new iMac 5Ks, so this would confirm yesterday’s rumors of higher-quality panels for the 27-inch model. Seeing things like this makes us think that in short Apple will launch the update of its desktop all-in-one . If the iMac (late 2015) were to be released much later they would wait to load these resources for the OS X 10.11.1 betas.
But it wouldn’t be crazy if the new iMac were launched this September, just on the day Apple launches OS X El Capitan , because it wouldn’t take a special event for either. It all depends on how long it takes Intel to provide Californians with its new range of Skylake processors, making the new iMac one of the first computers on the market to have this family of processors.
