Apple unveiled updated laptops during its Worldwide Developer Conference keynote on Monday, but news regarding an update to the company’s desktop lineup was noticeably absent from Monday’s event. Rumors had suggested that Apple’s Mac Pro would receive a significant update and while the desktops did receive a modest spec bump, it was so minute that Apple didn’t even mention the changes on stage. As for the iMac, which was also rumored to be getting a Retina-fueled refresh, Apple’s all-in-one remained untouched. According to a recent report from The New York Times, however, this won’t be the case for much longer. “Many Apple observers also wonder if Apple thinks that desktop computers are dead, since not a word was said about the iMac and Mac Pro,” The Times’s David Pogue wrote in a piece that ran soon after Apple’s WWDC 2012 keynote on Monday. “An executive did assure me, however, that new models and new designs are under way, probably for release in 2013.”
