With all this talk of an iPhone 5 it’s easy to forget about Apple’s other top tech.

We’re talking thinner Apple iMacs fitted with Intel’s Core i5 and Core i7 Ivy Bridge processors set to arrive around the June or July timeframe.

The supposed update follows hot on the news that Apple will also refresh its MacBook line with similar processors. First in line is said to be the 15-inch MacBook Pro, followed shortly by a refresh of the 14-inch model this June.

The latest Ivy Bridge processors will be capable of delivering high performance with less of the power consumption. And what that means for future laptops, and in this case Apple’s MacBook line is better battery life.

Apple has yet to confirm, but with reports coming from a “reliable tipster” here’s hoping we get to see these new Ivy Bridge iMacs and MacBook Pros soon. Apple is also rumoured to be launching MacBooks featuring Apple’s Retina Display – the same type used on the new iPad. With the latest Ivy Bridge processors, what a dream combo that would be.
