OS X Beta reveals new iMac, Bluetooth remote for Apple TV, and more
As developers currently test the second beta of OS X El Capitan, iOS 9 and watchOS 2, it’s hard not for these to not reveal more than just the future of Apple software. These builds need to bring support for every product they were designed for, and this could include products that haven’t been launched by Apple yet, given the fall timeline for these betas to go official. If you’re in the market for a new iMac or Apple TV, it might be a good idea to wait.
OS X El Capitan code reveals a possible new 21.5-inch iMac with a 4K display. At the moment if you want ultra-high resolution on an Apple desktop, your only option is the expensive 27-inch 5K iMac. The code shows support for the new AMD Radeon R9 processors (M380, M390, M395 and M395X), which could mean a boost in resolution coming soon.
Other parts of the software reveal a new Bluetooth remote control for the Apple TV. As you know, Apple TV remote controls are also compatible with certain Macs as well, and this particular remote doesn’t only connect through Bluetooth, but it also brings Force Touch technology as well.
There’s a lot on the table for what to expect from Apple products this holiday season, and this could mean good news for Cupertino.
