Rumor: Apple Planning to Release New iMacs in June or July

According to How To Arena‘s “reliable tipster,” Apple is going to be launching a new refreshed line of iMacs in either June or July of this year. These new all-in-one desktops will apparently be powered by Intel’s soon-to-be-released Ivy Bridge i5 and i7 processors.

Apple’s latest revision of the iMac was released on May 3rd 2011, two months before OS X Lion was released. It brought Intel Sandy Bridge processors and an HD FaceTime camera for more crisp video chat — these features were added to the MacBook Pro two months before on February 24th, 2011.

It’s obvious that Apple will release new models of their iMac desktops sometime in the summer since they are also going to be launching Mountain Lion around the same time. If you remember from last year, OS X Lion — the current revision of Apple’s PC operating system — was released on July 20th along with a new revision of their MacBook Air that brought Intel Sandy Bridge processors, a backlit keyboard, Intel Thunderbolt, and Bluetooth 4.0.
