Reports: ARM-Based iMac To Launch In 2H21, iPhone 12 Gets Dark Blue Color And LiDAR Tech

A trio of reports on Apple products has been published today. The first from China Times alleging that the first ARM-based iMac to launch in the second half of next year. Two reports by DigiTimes claiming that the iPhone 12 will be available in a new Dark Blue color and Apple will include the LiDAR technology into some of its new iPhone models.

The Apple Silicon iMac is expected to feature Apple's self-developed graphics processing unit (GPU), which will be produced using TSMC's 5nm process and will be used in the iMac to be launched in the second half of next year. The new GPU will deliver better performance per watt and higher computing performance, with tile-based deferred rendering technology, empowering app developers to write more powerful professional apps and games.

As for the new iPhone 12 color, leaker and XDA developer Max Weinbach predicted in January this year that the iPhone 12 will be available in Navy Blue. Weinbach believes that the new option will replace the Midnight Green that emerged on the iPhone 11 Pro last year.

When it comes to LiDAR technology, DigiTimes offered no details of what iPhone 12 models will feature this tech, but the wording suggests the feature will not come to all new ‌iPhone‌ models, so it's probably an exclusive addition available on the high-end iPhone 12 Pro models.

Apple confirmed last month that due to the pandemic and travel restrictions, the launch of the iPhone 12 will be delayed, with the supply to be "available a few weeks later." There will be four iPhones that Apple is said to launch: a 5.4-inch iPhone Pro, a 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max, and two low-end 6.1-inch iPhones.
