Apple prepping new iMac and Mac Pro designs for 2013?

Apple could introduce revamped desktops by this time next year, according to the latest rumours

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that the iMac and Mac Pro were somewhat underserved by WWDC – the Mac Pro received an incremental processor update, but the event focused on the all-new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, refreshed Macbook Pros, MacBook Airs and iOS 6 and OS X Mountain Lion.

It looks like Cupertino will be showing some love to Mac Pro and iMac fans in the near future, though. The New York Times' David Pogue collared a loose-lipped Apple executive at the event, who revealed that new models and designs for the iMac and Mac Pro are set to be released in 2013. Go figure.

The Mac Pro could certainly do with a revamp, given that it's now the only Mac lacking a Thunderbolt port – a keenly-felt omission for video professionals, no doubt.

It's far too early to tell what Apple's plans for its desktops truly are at this stage, but we'll keep our radars trained on Cupertino for any news.
