RUMOR: Apple to Undertake Major Device Revamp
Posted on November 3, 2011 by vincent oliver
Apple is rumored to be planning a major design revamp on several of its devices next year, according to Digitimes.
Apple plans to completely overhaul its product lineups, including iPad, iMac, iPhone and MacBook Air, in 2012 and is expected to finalize order volumes for key parts and components for the next-generation iPad in December, according to sources in the upstream supply chain.
Digitimes usually has pretty good sources, but all these revamps are kinda expected too. I think it’s obvious the iPhone and iPad will get updated in 2012, and it’s been a while since the iMac has had any design changes. The only one I’d be a little surprised about is the MacBook Air, I’d expect a redesigned MacBook Pro before a new MacBook Air. I’m actually hoping to see the MacBook Pro line get slimmer and look more like the Air.
