Rumour has it that Apple will announce a new iMac at WWDC 2020 next week, with the all-in-one computer said to be sporting an iPad Pro-esque design. Now, a schematic image found in a leaked build of iOS 14 suggests that Apple has overhauled the design of its next iMac.
Alex Alderson,

It has only been a few days since Sonny Dickson divulged Apple's plans to launch a new iMac at WWDC 2020. According to Dickinson, this next-generation iMac would have "Pro Display like bezels", a 32-inch display that starts at US$4,999 without a stand. Incidentally, the Pro Display XDR costs US$6,998 for the nano-texture glass model with a Pro Stand.

There is no indication that the next iMac will cost anywhere near as much as the Pro Display XDR, but a schematic image suggests that Apple has adopted new design language for its all-in-one computer. Reportedly found in a leaked build of iOS 14 by @iFinder_rus, the low-resolution icon shows that Apple has diverged from the design of existing iMacs.

According to previous rumours, the next iMac will be available in three sizes and with Apple's T2 security chip. Additionally, the devices may feature AMD Navi GPUs and Comet Lake-S processors. Apple equipping the 27-inch model with a Core i9-10900K processor has been spoken of too.
