Earlier this year, Apple discontinued their 21.5-inch iMac to make room for future iMac projects, now as we get closer to 2022, we are starting to see more leaks of Apple’s upcoming 27-inch desktop, with many sources claiming it will have a Mini-LED display, but a new article by DigiTimes Asia says otherwise.
Back in October, a leaker by the name of @dylandkt on Twitter had claimed that the new 27-inch iMac would be designed simillar to the 24-inch iMacs but would come in different colors, have ProMotion and a Mini-LED display. He also mentioned other details like an HDMI slot, SD Card slot, a starting price up to $2000 USD, and that Apple was testing FaceID.

There were several sources that backed up this leak, such as Ross Young, who did say that the new 27-inch iMac would come with ProMotion and a Mini-LED screen. DigiTimes Asia even supported this information with a paywalled article of their own, however, they just published an article saying that the new iMacs will not ship with a Mini-LED display but an LCD one instead.
We still believe it is Mini LED.

This left a lot of users confused on which display these new iMacs would have, but there is still speculation that Mini-LED could have been misinterpreted, and Apple could be using an LCD screen with Mini-LED backlighting instead. But do keep in mind that this is all speculation and rumors with nothing confirmed by Apple yet, so stay tuned for more updates from us.
