There have been plenty of conflicting reports about the iMac Pro, a more powerful alternative to the 24-inch iMac. Purportedly, the iMac Pro may not arrive until the summer, potentially during WWDC 2022. It could feature more than 4,000 mini-LEDs though, along with 1,000 dimming zones.

Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, has weighed in on the release of the iMac Pro, Apple's next 27-inch all-in-one (AIO) desktop. Writing on Twitter, Young states that the machine 'could launch in June', not March as had been rumoured previously. If so, that would put the iMac Pro on a collision course with the Worldwide Developers Conference 2022 (WWDC 2022), the date of which Apple is yet to announce.

Additionally, Young claims that the iMac Pro will launch with a mini-LED display, matching the latest iPad Pro 12.9MacBook Pro 16 and the MacBook Pro 14. Young's statement contradicts one made by DigiTimes in December, for reference. However, Young has the more reliable record of the two as things stand.

Young adds that that the iMac Pro's display could contain over 4,000 mini-LEDs and 1,000 dimming zones. In comparison, the Pro Display XDR contains 576 dimming zones, significantly fewer than the iMac Pro. On the other hand, the MacBook Pro 16 relies on a display with approximately 2,500 dimming zones and over 10,000 mini-LEDs.

The iMac Pro is also expected to launch with 120 Hz ProMotion capabilities and an M1 Pro or M1 Max SoC. Potentially, Apple has already registered the AIO with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) in Russia, which is also the case for the upcoming iPhone SE 5G and iPad Air 5.
