The screen would also have dark bezels, though there is no word on the comma. According to the leak, Face ID was apparently tested, although he admits that it was “not confirmed” for the model.

Dylan claims to be an internal candidate for the “iMac Pro” model name, but warns that the marketing team “can change gears very quickly”. The explanation for the name would be that it is “better different” from a 24-inch iMac, because it is a “Pro device with a Pro chip”.
The reporter adds that the model will most likely have a 27-inch screen and replace the existing 27-inch iMac. Rumors ahead of the launch of the 24-inch iMac model claimed that a larger iMac model was planned, although this did not pay off during the presentation itself.
