Apple has been working on a concept for several years nowall-in-one desktop computer which would combine screen, mouse and keyboard. We already knew that the format would look like a revolutionary device, but the manufacturer still chose to improve its diagrams via an update last week. In particular, we learn that the chassis would be composed of a single piece of glass, suggesting a particularly premium finish that can be seen on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
With this, the engineers from the company specify on the apple that an appearance of a touchpad would be included directly as an extension of the rest of the hull. This could be a technology similar to that Magic trackpad, a control accessory sold separately by Apple that costs the modest sum of 155 euros in France. When you buy a 24-inch iMac, however, just add 50 euros to your bill and the device is yours.
A detachable keyboard
Another important advantage: the future glass iMac from Apple would therefore also have a keyboard, but which could be separated according to the user’s wishes. Considering the form the computer would take, the initiative seems essential to be able to make the system more mobile. This would also be another of its main advantages: the possibility of taking it anywhere, simply by removing the magic keyboard. ONE portable iMacdoes it tell you?
When is the release?
But of course let’s keep in mind that this is just a simple patent. Its creators therefore have full freedom not to never make it happen if the market’s expectations do not correspond to it. And with the hypothetical abandonment of the 27-inch iMac with the same design as the one with an M1 chip, such a fate remains entirely possible.
If this project is abandoned, it will be far from the only one. We remember, for example, the brief success of the AirPower charger, which Apple went so far as to present to the public before finally choosing to put it away. The fault, it is said, with overheating problems.
