Though we already knew that WWDC would not be much about any hardware but even if we were asked to bet some money on an option then we would likely have gone for the Retina iMac but that didn’t happen. But that doesn’t mean that this will be forgotten altogether; this is huge and the rumors surrounding it are not going anywhere anytime soon.
If we do want any more clues on where the iMac would be going this year, then we can get something out of the firs beta of OS X 10.10 Yosemite.The latest beta release of Mavericks, or OS X 10.9.4 mentioned the new iMac for the first time when the unreleased iMac popped up. The new iMac has apparently gained pointers to a Retina display with obviously a high resolution.
The new iMac was first spotted by French outlet MacBidouille and they have outlined some of the features which include a display that maxes out at 6400 x 3600 pixels and because of the power of the OS X, this would almost equal to 3200 x 1800 Retina display.
Retina displays are known for the generation of huge displays and they can precisely downscale them to whatever the native resolution of the panel happens to be, without disturbing the pixels.
The result is a perfect image on the screen. If you are one of those who had been wanting to get their hands on the new iMac but were waiting for a retina display then this is good news for you because there could be no bigger indication than this.
