The sleek aluminum machines have hardly changed since they were redesigned in 2009.

Apple is getting ready to revamp its iMac line of desktop computers, according to a report Friday from Bloomberg. The iconic all-in-one computers will reportedly get slimmer black boarders around their 21.5-inch and 27-inch screens, a reduction of the aluminum "chin" that extends below the screen area, and an overall boxier design, similar to Apple's Pro Display XDR monitor that was released last year. 

The new report, which cites anonymous sources, surfaces as Apple is moving to replace processors manufactured by Intel with its own Apple Silicon-branded chips across the entire Mac computer line, which includes the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air lines of laptop computers.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
