Apple seems to be preparing a new line of iMac computers for this year, with the much awaited changes to its design that have been talked about for several months. However, these new units with thinner bezels and an Apple Silicon processor should not offer the possibility of unlocking using Face ID.
According to a new rumor advanced by Mark Gurman, this form of biometric authentication will not be included in the iMac models planned for 2021, but that does not mean that they are not part of future reviews.

Gurman says that the 2021 models will even feature thinner bezels and look more similar to the iPad Pro.
As expected, Apple should also choose to include in the machine one of its Apple Silicon processors, be it the already known M1 or another version specifically designed for this type of product.
Apparently Apple also studied the possibility of including Face ID in these new models of iMac, but decided not to include it. For many users it is a disappointment, as they expected to be able to unlock their computer more quickly and more conveniently.
Face ID was something that a lot of Apple fans asked for all the new computers in Cupertino, but it looks like we’re going to have to wait some more time for this feature.

Even without Face ID, Apple will aim to deliver a performance far above that offered by previous versions, which used Intel processors.
Some voices have been made public to warn of the possibility of Apple placing a desktop-level A14T processor inside the new iMac, using TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing process.
There is also a group that believes in the inclusion of an M2 chip, something that would even make more sense considering Apple’s positioning and strategy in this market segment.
Even without Face ID, changes to the design should be enough to make a lot of people excited, since they lend the computer a much more modern look. If we add more processing capacity to this, perhaps Apple is facing a serious case of success.
For now, all this information should be interpreted as rumors, but Cupertino should officially speak about the new iMacs during the first half of this year.
