Apple’s New iMac Isn’t Delayed, But It Is Supply-Constrained

Rumors that Apple’s newly redesigned iMacs have been delayed until 2013 are just that. Sources close to Apple tell AllThingsD that the machines will begin shipping later this year as planned. The 21.5-inch iMac will debut before the end of this month, with its 27-inch sibling arriving in December.

“The plan is still the plan,” one source told AllThingsD. Good news for those hoping to put a new iMac under the tree this year.

Sadly, said plan also still includes the expected shortages that Apple CEO Tim Cook mentioned during the company’s last earnings call. “In terms of general shortages on the iMac, we’ll be constrained for the full quarter in a significant way,” Cook said. “Part of that is that we’re beginning shipping the 21.5-inch iMac in November and the 27-inch in December. And so there will be a short amount of time during the quarter to manufacturer and ramp those, and I expect the demand to be robust. So we will have a significant shortage there.”

9to5Mac was first to debunk reports of iMac shipping delays.
