Apple is currently transitioning from Intel processors to in-house chipsets based on the ARM architecture. The company has already moved three products over to Apple Silicon, and now Xcode has essentially confirmed that the iMac could soon follow suit. Rumour has it that the ARM-based iMac will feature a redesign too.

It is only a matter of time before we see an Apple Silicon-based iMac as part of Apple's transition away from Intel processors. The company claimed that it would do so within two years, and we are nearly a year into that timeline.

Now, the developer behind DaftCloud has discovered a clue about the next iMac in an Xcode crash report. As the screenshot below shows, it seems that someone has been running DaftCloud on an iMac with ARM-64 hardware. We would recommend remaining sceptical about such early leaks, but it should follow that Apple is already testing an iMac running an in-house SoC.

Rumour has it that Apple will redesign the next iMac to resemble the Pro Display XDR, which would finally do away with the iMac's huge bezels. However, Apple is not expected to announce any new iMacs until October 2021 at the earliest.
