Since the unveiling of the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2, numerous reports have talked about upcoming devices from the Cupertino-based tech giant.

The most vehemently searched products that are widely anticipated are the Apple MacBook Pro 2016 and Apple iMac 2016 apart from Apple MacBook Air 2016.

Speculations are rife as to the iMac 2016 and many believe that the device could be unveiled in October. Apple has not released any official information on its upcoming roster of products and some have even speculated the death of the Air line.

However, certain rumours appear to be true and the iMac 2016 is expected to be yet another revolutionary product, writes Mobile & Apps.

The iMac received its last update on October 2015 and Apple could be looking for some out-of-the-box updates before year-end.

As is always the case with Apple, while some believe the iMac 2016 will bring never-seen-before changes to the line, some are arguing that a major overhaul is unlikely for the time being.

The iPhone maker is expected to go with Intel processors for the Apple iMac 2016 thought the hyped Kaby Lake chipset may not find a place in the device if it’s released in October.

WCCF Tech reported about five months ago that the AMD Radeon 400 Series Polaris GPUs landed major Apple design wins. Hence, AMD’s contract with Apple as regards to graphics chips may bring a highly-advanced Polaris GPU to the Apple iMac 2016.

Another popular speculation is VR capability getting enabled in the iMac for the first time. The device is also expected to sport a new display. Enabling VR capabilities will provide an instant edge to the iMac 2016 as Polaris 10 and 11 GPUs improve VR performance significantly.

The fusion drives may also become the default storage in iMac 2016 and it is undoubtedly one of the best features that Apple can bring to the device. Rumours also suggest that the upcoming iMac may have flash storage as storage standard.
