Apple’s Silicon-based iMac to launch in first half of 2021

A version of the A14 processor in the new iPhone 12 handsets and iPad Air 4 could power the upcoming Apple Silicon iMac, a report published Tuesday claims.

The device listing carries a placeholder name of B2002 and is listed under the "personal computer" category.

The report goes on to mention that Apple is also working on its own GPU, now codenamed "Lifuka", that will also be found inside the same iMac that Apple is planning on releasing in the first half of 2021.

The product is filed under the "personal computer" category, which Apple has used for previous Mac and iPad listings in the database, so it is hard to pinpoint the listing to a specific product at this time. The device could also potentially be an Apple Silicon Mac given that other information, such as the listed Qualified Design IDs, have referred to both Mac and iPad devices in the past.

The report notes that, if a product uses the same Bluetooth specifications, a company can update a previous listing. The update, therefore likely indicates that Apple is working on a new MacBook Pro 16 (2020) model after launching another 16-inch notebook with AMD Radeon Pro 5600M GPU in June 2020.

The listing is Apple's first in the Bluetooth product database since 2019.
