Well, enough speculating! Apple is keeping their promise of delivering the 21-inch iMac in November. According to a press release put out by the company the newly redesigned 21.5″ iMac will be available for purchase starting on November 30, 2012.
While Apple only specified a date for the 21-inch model, they did reaffirm the December shipping timeframe for the 27-inch model — which is a good sign. I would imagine, they will try and have it out before Christmas.
Back in September at the iPhone 5 launch, Apple announced that iTunes 11 would ship in late October and then at its press event in October they announced that the stunning new 21.5″ iMac would be available in November, while the beautiful 27″ iMac would be available in December. Well, October past and there was no iTunes 11, so we were then told that iTunes 11 was pushed back to a November release date. Ok, so here we are on November 26, 2012 with no iTunes 11 and no new 21.5″ iMac available for purchase.
This isn’t the first time Apple hasn’t delivered with iTunes. Last year, Apple promised that iTunes Match would be available to everyone at the end of October, however, come November 1, 2011 iTunes Match hadn’t launched yet. However, even though iTunes Match was delayed to the public, developers still had early access to it at the time. Right now, developers don’t even have access to iTunes 11. Which makes you wonder: are we in for an extended wait?
It’s about that time, folks. The Thanksgiving holiday arrives next Thursday. The day after that, Black Friday, is one of the biggest shopping days of the year. The mobs will show up at countless retailers looking for deals and discounts, and will look to get a jump on holiday gift buying for friends and family. We at BestTechie know that you’re bound to have a few gadget fans on your shopping list; that’s why we’ve taken the time to put together this comprehensive holiday gift guide.
This guide differs a bit from other guides you might find online. We’ve broken things up into a couple of different categories; Laptops, Tablets, Smartphones, Desktops, Audio, Gaming, and Miscellaneous. Rather than select one single product, we’ve opted instead to select several that we think are the cream of the crop; the best that particular category has to offer. You know your intended gift recipient the best, so we think you can decide from there.
