I seriously doubt Apple's put off upgrading their line of pro displays for the last 5 years because they were in search of better color. To be honest, I'm not sure why they didn't upgrade the Thunderbolt Display to modern specs when the Pro came out in late 2013. But to hamstring a new Mac Pro because of "better color" tech coming two years down the road doesn't really sound like how Cupertino operates.
If it's the 5K, updated with a new Skylake chip and ports, it's probably easy for Apple to keep the wraps on it. Leaks only tend to show up when third party suppliers have new parts to contribute. This is all motherboard.
 I can't imagine they'd release the new iMacs without TB3/USB-C. Why would anyone buy brand new computers with old ports?
I like political discussions as much as anyone, but keep them in the PO forum.   The 4K Retina iMac must not be drowned out by politics, especially when some of us are waiting to buy this year's upgrade, and the media event (if there is one coming) hasn't been announced yet.
As last year with Yosemite, I will be grateful to any Bothans who can supply information on whether Adobe CS5 works with El Capitan.   I'm particularly interested in whether Adobe InDesign CS5 has any issues, since Photoshop can now be replaced if necessary (for me anyway) by Affinity Photo.
Apple introduced the 5K iMac and an upgraded Mac Mini on the same day of Yosemite's release last year. On a Thursday in mid-October.   So perhaps they've decided to release El Capitan earlier this year just because it was ready, or maybe they want to release a .1 update before releasing the new Skylake Macs in mid-to-late October.   The lack of rumours at this stage is troubling though. I'm waiting for the fall upgrades to purchase, so maybe I'm just getting antsy.
Apple's chosen to make El Capitan available via press release. No Skylake hardware announcements yet, but for now it is beginning to look like I was wrong about an October Mac event.
We still have five days to go till the 6S ships, and Apple's probably going to give it a week or so to allow the newest iPhone to hold the headlines.   Then they'll either then leak or announce the Mac event. There will be an event because I don't think Apple's ever released an operating system solely by press release, when Macs are being upgraded in the same timeframe. Also, with this upgrade cycle Apple is quarterbacking Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, which isn't the kind...
 Aside from its own software apps, Apple's now managing four distinct operating systems: OS X, iOS, watchOS and tvOS. I imagine it's tough enough keeping all the system software and applications straight and compatible with each other without adding the complexity of managing another mass software transition within OS X.
Add these to Skylake, and then someone please inform AI that this cannot be referred to as a "mid-cycle refresh".
