7 upgrades I want to see on the rumored iMac 2023

    Don’t get me wrong: I adore my 24-inch iMac. It’s fantastic. It’s gotten me through my hardest workdays, and I don’t regret spending money on it – even though there are less expensive solutions available.

    But would I devote my life to protect it? Not even close. Not to belittle Apple… Actually, I’m making fun of Apple… The iMac 24-inch (2021) was an appealing piece of equipment, and it is currently one of the greatest Macs and without a doubt the best all-in-one PC. However, at such a high price, Apple’s engineers might have done a better job developing it.

    Within my first week with mine, I had already identified several of its blatant shortcomings, issues that I seriously doubt any Apple employee had seen and said anything or issued a memo about. The lack of any kind of height adjustments, for example, was an odd decision; after all, it is a basic function that most screens have. Don’t even get me started on the basic setup. Even my mid-range model has trouble multitasking or bulk exporting altered high-resolution photographs from Lightroom.

    However, rumor has it that a new iMac 2023 is on the way, with the next WWDC 2023 conference acting as its launch pad. If those reports are accurate, I hope Apple has used the two years since the debut of the last-standing iMac to get its act together.

    Here are 7 things I expect & I wish to see on the rumored iMac 2023.

    More ports, accessible ports

    While I understand that AIO PCs are all about minimalism, there’s no justification for Apple taking it to the next level with its ports. The iMac 24-inch (2021) basic model only featured two Thunderbolt 3 connectors. Two. And, while Apple did add two USB-C ports to the mid-range and high-end versions, it is still insufficient, particularly for users who want to use it for business or content production.

    It makes sense in principle, especially because both the Magic Keyboard and the Magic Mouse connect wirelessly to it. Despite its best efforts, Apple was unable to make Thunderbolt 3 a reality in the real world. In any case, not yet. It’s why it reintroduced the SD card reader and HDMI port to its Pro laptops, and it’s why it has to add more ports (and an SD card reader) to the desktop computer it’s been promoting to both pros and casual everyday customers.

    I’d also want to see at least two of them at the front or on the sides. I also see why Apple hid the ports in the rear, out of sight – it’s all about presentation, after all. However, they are extremely difficult to access. Apple should make two of them immediately accessible so that users don’t have to lean over and feel their way around if they want to rapidly attach another device or a peripheral.

    Better ergonomics

    I can ignore the lack of ports, especially when the finest USB hubs are available to solve the problem. The iMac 24-inch (2021)’s most vexing flaw is its lack of adjustments and articulations.

    The display has a slight up and down tilt, but that’s about it. The only way to modify the height is to buy a display mount – or stack some textbooks under it if you’re poor – and swiveling means spinning the entire dang computer. The latter part is intentional, but it’s still a little creepy, especially if you’re borderline obsessive-compulsive like me.

    I can’t emphasize this enough: if Apple wants people to keep buying its devices, it needs to help reduce occupational injuries by improving the ergonomics of its products. If the iMac 2023 is actually coming, I’d want to see adequate height adjustments included in.

    Speedier performance even at base configurations

    Woof! The iMac 24-inch (2021), which Apple touts as a tool for studio work, content production, and other intensive jobs, isn’t all that powerful unless you spend for the high-end model or expand the RAM to 16GB.

    I have the mid-range model with the 8-Core CPU, 8-Core GPU, and 8GB memory, and it sweated enough through my typical photo editing needs in Lightroom, which is typically editing 10-15 high-resolution RAW images and exporting them as high-resolution JPEGs, that I complained to Apple’s customer service within a month of purchase. It’s much worse when I’m doing the same editing task while viewing a show.

    If you want to utilize this for more intense jobs, it appears that you will have to spend a bit extra and upgrade to 16GB RAM or just purchase the maximum configuration available, which is about $2,000/£2,000 – not exactly consumer-friendly.

    I’d want to see Apple deliver on its promises for the upcoming iMac 2023 without pushing customers to upgrade. Provide us with faster performance at cheaper settings; we’re already paying a premium for it.

    A more affordable price

    Or, at the very least, make it more accessible. The 2021 model starts at $1,299 / £1,249 / AU$1,899, which is for the wealthy, and in current economy, spending that much for a less-than-powerful gear isn’t ideal. My mid-range model cost $1,499, and I didn’t feel like I was receiving the performance I expected for that amount.

    People currently prioritize obtaining the best value for their money over acquiring the latest and most appealing technology. If Apple isn’t going to provide us faster lower setups, at least give us a lot of bang for our dollars. Instead of a starting price of over $1,000/£1,000, why not follow Lenovo and Dell’s lead and keep it under?

    Face ID

    Both the mid-range and high-end editions of the iMac 24-inch (2021) include the Touch ID version of the Magic Keyboard, which is another thorny issue for me because it only functioned half the time. It will not function if your finger is even slightly moist. It’s the most untrustworthy fingerprint reader I’ve ever used, but that’s another story for another time.

    Face ID is what I truly want to see on the new iMac 2023. When it comes to facial recognition login, it appears that many low-cost Windows laptops are beating Apple to the punch, which is not good. Even Apple’s Pro-level MacBooks lack it, which feels like a travesty.

    If Apple wants to keep up with its competitors, it must stop waffling and get its act together by adding Face ID to its Mac family, including the upcoming iMac.

    A mouse you can charge and use at the same time

    I’m not sure what Apple was thinking when it released the Magic Mouse. To be clear, it’s a terrific mouse, but it has a comically big defect that, for some inexplicable reason, no one at Apple ever vetoed.

    If you’ve never used a Magic Mouse before, I’m referring to the charging port on the underside of the mouse, which effectively renders the mouse unusable while charging. I find it difficult to believe that no one ever mentioned, “Hey, there’s a better location for this charging port.” during the whole process of making this mouse, from design to quality control. Let’s get things fixed.”

    I’d love for Apple to redesign both the Magic Keyboard and the Magic Mouse, especially since both are long overdue. But, more specifically, I want it to correct the port location and improve the reliability of the keyboard’s Touch ID reader.

    A bigger display

    This is essentially just a bonus. I’m pleased with the 24-inch monitor on my iMac, and this is coming from someone who goes from 24-inch to 40-inch displays on their Windows setup. However, I wouldn’t mind having a little more screen real estate, especially if Apple keeps to the current size of the AIO – though there are rumors that the manufacturer is intending to bring back its bigger 27-inch variant.

    I’m sure many iMac owners would prefer a bigger display, and it would benefit Apple to accommodate them. Especially because it appears to be eating its competitors’ dust in terms of new technology in general.
