It's being reported today by 9to5Mac that the 21.5 inch iMac is likely to gain a 4K display in October. Mark Gurman and Pierre Dandumont first discovered the references to a new retina display resolution of 4,096 x 2,304 in a running beta of OS X El Capitan way back in June. Today's news is confirmation that Apple is likely to be introducing Retina quality to the entry iMac.
Although the boost in resolution sounds great, unless you're a photographer or gamer, the average user will only see a slight boost in display quality. What could be more interesting this year is seeing Apple bring Siri to iMacs based on Intel's new Skylake processors. It would be great to see Siri finally come to the Mac to match Microsoft's move to bring Cortana to Windows 10 systems. Will Apple have a surprise for their new iMacs this fall beyond a boost in display resolution? Only time will tell.
