Those who have followed the Mac series in the last few years may think that Apple has largely given up on desktop computers. It’s been over a year since the release of the latest iMac series. While it has not been updated since the Mac mini 2014, it has not been touched in Mac Pro since 2013, when the design changed.

This brings to mind the question, “Do not Apple think about those who need more than a laptop computer?” The company’s CEO, Tim Cook, replies, “Yes, we are thinking.” Cook noted that desktop computers are still important in sharing an in-house forum, and that the company has “gorgeous desktop computers” on the road map.
Tim Cook’s reasoning for the importance of desktop computers is not surprising to the ear. Since portability is not a concern, it is possible to focus more on performance on desktop computers. Thus, a larger screen, more inputs and more raw power can be placed in the device. According to Cook, sometimes this difference can be “vital” for the users.
Apple is stepping on Intel desktop roadmap
Apple has not yet given a concrete indication that it will give up desktop PC production. But the fact that the company does not seem to be willing to renew the desktop products has given rise to some questions. It should also be noted that Apple’s work in this area is linked to Intel’s roadmap. It is known that Intel’s 7th generation Core processors will not be ready for desktop format until next January. This prevents Apple from renewing iMac processors before January. For Mac mini and Mac Pro, it is not possible to talk about such a situation.
Despite Tim Cook’s explanation, some issues with Apple’s desktop products remain unclear. It is not known exactly which desktop products are part of Apple’s future plans. In addition, it is also wondered whether the criticisms will be taken into consideration in the revisions to be made in the products.
