An analyst claims that Apple will update the iMac in June or July.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims the new all-in-one Mac will feature the new Intel Haswell processor, reports Apple Insider.

Kuo's note to clients makes no suggestion that the new iMac will get a mention at during the WWDC keynote, which is expected to focus on OS X and iOS 7, with the launch of new MacBooks tagged on.

Cult of Mac isn't too impressed with news that Haswell will feature in the new iMacs. That site suggests: "Haswell processors aren’t going to be a huge improvement for iMacs. Where Haswell will rule is in mobile computers, like the MacBook line: Haswell isn’t much faster than current chips, but the battery performance and on-chip graphics have been greatly improved. Important in a laptop, but not as big a deal in a desktop."
