A rumour is circulating that Apple will miss the announced shipping dates for the latest iMac models.
Seemingly originating with French site MacBidoulle (which cited "a commercial source"), the rumour is that Apple may miss the holiday shopping season.
The new models may not appear until the New Year.
MacBidoulle suggests the delay is being caused by problems with the high pressure aluminium welding system used in the manufacturing process.
When Apple announced the new iMac, officials said the 21.5in model would be available in November and the 27in in December.
That information is still being shown at the online Apple Store.
