Just yesterday, a rumor ran across the web that Apple was going to launch a cheapest iMac it is a 8GB iPhone 5s at WWDC 2014, whose opening keynote will take place next Monday (2/6).
We, the MacMagazine, we decided to ignore the “news” because it was one of those released by “analysts” – in this case, one that even has a good track record: Ming-Chi Kuo, from KGI Securities.
It didn’t take long for the predictions to go down: Jim Dalrymple, from The Loop, which is known to have very hot sources within Apple, responded to the rumor with its traditional “Nope.” – practically an official answer that we will have neither a cheaper iMac nor an 8GB iPhone 5s on this WWDC (this, then, I would find totally meaningless).
It is worth noting, however, that Dalrymple did not deny the expected arrival of new iMacs – he just said that we will not have a cheaper model. Whether what we will have will be a modest upgrade (similar to what happened recently with MacBooks Air) or a totally new version, who knows even with Retina screens, we will know in a few days.
