If reports are to be believed, the Apple iMac 2016 could be revealed in October and the device is expected to boast of some revolutionary specs such as Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processor, Thunderbolt 3 and VR support.

Tech enthusiasts too believe that there are high chances of the Cupertino-based company releasing the iMac 2016 this October as the earlier iMac was released in October 2015. However, Apple hasn’t confirmed any of this yet.

Apple will supposedly hold an event on Oct. 27 and a brand new iMac 2016 will be unveiled there. If this is not true, the device may surely be unveiled at the WWDC 2017 in June, writes Macworld. At this point no one is certain when the iMac 2016 will be released.

Reports suggest the delay in the release of the iMac 2016 is because of the Intel Kaby Lake processor that has not been released yet. The 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor is expected to power up the device like never before magnifying its performance exponentially.

The Intel Kaby Lake processor will help in enhanced graphics performance and better battery performance. The processor will also provide the iMac 2016 with USB 3.1 support, Thunderbolt 3 and DisplayPort 1.2 support.

However, iMac fans may have to wait if Apple is planning to incorporate the Kaby Lake processor into the device. If that’s not the case, the iMac 2016 may also feature an AMD Zen processor and Polaris 10 graphics card.

Earlier in October, the Best Buy website listed a new iMac 2016 with Retina 5K display, Kaby Lake processor, 2TB Fusion drive and 32GB Memory, writes Techno Buffalo. It could have been a mistake by one of Best Buy’s employees or the listing was just a placeholder.

Even if the AMD processor is used along with a Polaris card, it will still result in incredible processing power and intense GPU performance. The iMac 2016 will also provide PC users with external flash drives and VR support.
