Retina iMac reference found in OS X YosemiteWe’ve seen a few rumors about the possibility of an updated iMac with Retina display. Some signs of the machine were even found in the OS X Yosemite, but nothing is confirmed when it comes to Apple products until it comes from the company itself. Keeping that in mind, according to a new report from MacGeneration, Apple will release updated iMacs by the end of next week. The publication has predicted correctly in the past, so we have a reason to believe they may be correct this time as well.

Before we get too excited, it’s not going to be a big refresh, and it’s unlikely the Retina display will be a part of the iMac update, if the report is correct. Instead, it will include minor hardware bumps—increasing CPU speeds with latest Haswell processor, possibly the latest Haswell offering. It could be similar to the Macbook Air refresh we saw back in April, with minor bumps in hardware.

And, if Apple were to release a newly updated iMac, they would have done so at the big WWDC 2014 event, rather than releasing it silently. Since there’s no event, we can assume it’s not something big, if it’s coming at all. We’ll update you if any such thing happens next week.
