Apple updates iMac with vibrant colours and M1 chip


The new Apple iMac features a 24-inch 4.5K Retina display and a striking design refresh enabled due to Apple’s M1 processor.

Vibrant design

Apple’s new iMac comes in a thinner and more compact design thanks to the power efficiency of its processor. This design of the iMac reduces its volume by 50 per-cent allowing it to fit easily in even more places.

Visually, the biggest change also comes in terms of colour choice. The new iMac comes in seven different colours with a focus on personalising and elevating any space. To complete the simplified design, iMac also comes with a new power connector that attaches magnetically and a woven 2-meter long colour-matched cable.

Gorgeous display with M1 performance

The new iMac features a 24.5-inch 4.5K Retina display with narrower borders and 11.3 million pixels. It also features a P3 wide colour gamut, True Tone technology, 500 nits of brightness and over a billion colours. Pairing with this display is Apple’s M1 chip and macOS Big Sur.

In combination, Apple’s iMac feels more fluid. According to Apple, you can browse even faster and run hundred tabs at once. Especially with the 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU on Apple’s M1 processor, you get up to 85 per-cent faster CPU performance and 2x faster GPU performance over the standard 21.5-inch iMac.

Ample connectivity

With the new iMac, you find a 1080p HD camera with image signal processing thanks to the processor on-board. To further compliment this, the iMac features a studio-quality three-microphone array and a six-speaker sound system. Via the colour matched accessories available for the new iMac, you can also access Touch ID.
