After today's incredibly tiny update to the Mac Pro, you might be wondering if Apple plans to kill off the venerable desktop. Apparently, that's not the case. New York Times technology columnist David Pogue spoke to an anonymous Apple executive who said that the company's desktops are getting a makeover, perhaps by 2013. While the internet is already abuzz with reports that the iMac and Mac Pro in particular will be refreshed, Pogue's story doesn't actually specify either of those — merely "new models and new designs" — so we've reached out to him for clarification. Either way, it sounds like we haven't heard the last of Apple's desktop announcements. Perhaps it's time for a redesigned Cube?
Update: Macworld and Forbes both have official confirmation that the
iMac and Mac Pro are getting redesigned for 2013. Apple CEO Tim Cook himself chimed in: "Although we didn't have a chance to talk about a new Mac Pro at today’s event, don't worry as we're working on something really great for later next year," he wrote in an email.
Update 2: Forbes has issued a correction: Apple didn't mention the iMac, it seems, only the Mac Pro.
