Despite rumors suggesting otherwise, the new super thin iMac should meet its originally scheduled release by year's end.
Sources have dismissed the speculation and now say the forthcoming iMac models are set to release on its designated launch date. The 21-inch model is apparently on its way to distributors in the U.S. and other regions, with a launch expected to come into fruition before December arrives.
The 27-inch iMac model, meanwhile, is said to launch sometime during December, with online pre-orders set to commence soon.
Rumors pointed towards the launch of the upcoming all-in-one desktop being delayed until the opening months of 2013. Due to Apple's 5-millimeter thickness design, the desktop being so thin is said to have caused the firm production difficulties.
The report claimed that the "friction-stir welding" process was reportedly delaying production stages. The technique is used for air wing manufacturing and fuses aluminum together with heat, as well as thousands of pounds of pressure.
