A tweet by tipster @L0vetodream strongly hints that an all-new iMac based on Apple’s new ARM-based platform could arrive as early as March, adding the all-in-one to an increasing list of ARM-powered Mac devices.

Tipster @L0vetodream tweeted a video showing the evolution of Apple’s iMac all-in-one, along with the number “3.” While the tweet is cryptic, to say the least, based on what we’ve seen so far in terms of 2020 Apple product rollouts, the most plausible explanation is that the tipster’s hinting at a March (3) release timeframe for new iMac models. 

Considering Apple’s begun the transition to its ARM-based M platform, it’s very likely that this upcoming iMac will also feature an M1 or derivative processor. Interestingly, this wouldn’t be the first “desktop” Mac to feature the M1. Amid stellar reviews for the M1-powered MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, the Mac Mini’s launch was relatively muted. However, the larger form factor gives us a better idea of how an M1-powered iMac will perform, given lower thermal constraints.

The Mac Mini generally outperforms the MacBook Air, thanks to higher sustained clocks, while largely performing on par with the MacBook Pro, which features fan cooling. We’d expect an M1-powered iMac to deliver this level of performance, at the very least. We should hear more about this in the months to come and will keep you posted!
