9to5Mac, a site that specialises in reporting the latest news and rumours regarding Apple products, may have found evidence that a new 21.5-Inch iMac is on its way – the first update to the series in nearly two years – featuring a 4K display. After digging into the latest release of OS X El Capitan beta, Apple’s successor to Yosemite, 9to5Mac found support for an as-yet non-existent 4096×2304 resolution Apple Retina display.

“Likely destined for a refreshed version of the 21.5-inch iMac, which currently does not have a Retina display, the new El Capitan beta references Mac support for a new 4096 x 2304 resolution Apple-made display panel,” says Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac.

The listings refer to other supported hardware, including Iris Pro 6200, which is Intel’s new Broadwell-integrated graphic chipset – launched earlier this month but not in use in any current iMac iterations – which would certainly be suitable for powering a 4K display. Below that, further reference is made to four of AMD’s new Radeon R9 processors – the M380, M390, M395, and M395X models – which may also feature in the new machine.

BGR has taken this revelation and ran with it, suggesting that a new 4K 21.5-Inch iMac could be hitting stores this Autumn, a common time of year for new Apple desktop releases.
