Apple’s new iMac comes with an updated design for the first time since 2012. Here’s all you need to know about the refreshed all-in-one PC.
Apple introduces its all-new iMac 2021 variant at the fully-loaded Apple Spring event 2021. This device unlike the other Apple iMacs features an entire new vamped up design since the early 2012 iMac lineup. The device will be one of the devices featuring the all-powerful M1 processor like the iPad Pro 2021 and MacBook Pro and Air 2020. This revamped design on the iMac 2021 variant features a lot of vibrant colours and it perhaps makes room for a lot of controversies.
The new iMac 2021 model
It is without a doubt that the most talked about feature of this iMac 2021 is its new vamped looked, how much is the look appreciated, well that’s a matter of perspective. The new Apple iMac will feature a completely new design with a very thin frame. This makes the iMac light and nearly invisible from the sides. There is also a single sheet of glass across the front surface. The new iMac will be available in seven bright and vibrant colours.
The new Apple iMac will be available in multiple variants, It will feature a 4.5K display and other features, including a new camera, new microphones and powerful new speakers. The new iMac also supports Apple’s spatial audio and the brand claims it is the best ever speaker setup on a Mac.
iMac has always been about its best-in-class display. The new iMac features an expansive 24-inch 4.5K Retina display with narrower borders and 11.3 million pixels. With a P3 wide color gamut and over a billion colors, plus 500 nits of brightness, images are vivid and more brilliant.
Camera and Touch ID
The new iMac also includes a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, studio-quality mics, and a six-speaker sound system — the best camera and audio ever in a Mac. Also, Touch ID comes to iMac for the first time, making it easier than ever to securely log in, make purchases with Apple Pay, or switch user profiles with the touch of a finger.
The M1 Chipset, possibly the most popular chipset of 2021 is in itself a giant leap in the MacBook section. This chipset has outperformed the Intel i7 and i9 processors in various areas, and now like a science fiction movie, there will be one chipset on multiple Apple devices.
Thanks to the new M1 system-on-a-chip architecture, the M1 uses a smaller logic board and hence reduces its overall volume by over 50%. At just 11.5mm thin the new iMac can fit into a lot of spaces, at home or at the office. For GPU performance, the new iMac is claimed to be up to two times than before, helping with faster photo and video edits.
Software macOS Big Sur
The iMac is also powered with macOS Big Sur. Apple claims the new Apple iMac is up to 85 per cent faster than before. There is also cross-clipboard support that allows you to copy elements on the iPhone and paste them on the new iMac.
There are also 4 USB C ports for I/O, along with a new power connector that attaches magnetically. The ethernet connection will also now connect to the power cable now to keep the desktop space cleaner. The iMac will also come with Touch ID and will support Apple’s Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard.
Apple claims that the new iMac with M1 chipset is minimising its impact on environmental damage. In Apple’s words
The new iMac is minimizing its impact on the environment, built using a low-carbon aluminum enclosure and 100 percent recycled tin in the solder of its main logic board. One hundred percent wood fiber in the packaging is recycled or comes from responsibly managed forests. The magnets in the speakers, fan motor, and power connector are made with 100 percent recycled rare earth elements. iMac remains free of harmful substances and meets Apple’s high standards for energy efficiency.Apple
