According to the french website MacGeneration, Apple will likely release updated iMacs sometime next week. This is also likely to be just a speed bump similar to the new MacBook Airs released at the end of April this year.
This update will increase processor speeds only slightly. The current base 21.5-inch iMac currently runs at 2.7 GHz. This should increase to 2.8 or 2.9 GHz. It's doubtful that there will be any major changes for this update. Screen sizes and resolutions won't change, or port configurations. It should also have the same super-thin edge design as the current models.
Major changes could happen when the new Intel Broadwell chips are incorporated into the iMac, which may happen before the end of this year. With faster processor speeds and upgraded graphics power, the next iMac could very well be the long rumored Retina iMac. Retina is Apple's name for high-resolution display panels. The 27-inch iMac could theoretically have a 4K resolution.
If Apple does release speed bumped iMacs it will likely be done quietly usually on a Tuesday. There is also a rumor that there will also be a slight price drop. Base model is $1299. It's possible it will drop $100 to $200 off current pricing.
