Despite a report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo overnight claiming that Apple will debut a new iMac and an 8GB iPhone 5s around WWDC, the answer from reliable Apple journalist Jim Dalrymple is a simple, “nope”.
Dalrymple has an excellent track record when it comes to Apple product launches, often posting either a “yep” or a “nope” and sadly this time it is the latter.
The KGI Securities analyst suggested that Apple would launch the two new products, with the 8GB iPhone destined for growing markets and the iMac arriving at a lower price-point.
“As iPhone 5s is a highly popular model, we predict Apple may launch an 8GB version to boost market share in emerging markets,” Kuo reported.
Kuo did not expect the products to be announced on stage at WWDC, but around the same time.
