Apple iMac 2021

Apple iMac 2021

Apple today announced the all-new Apple iMac powered by Apple M1 chip. The redesigned Apple iMac comes in 7 different colors (green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver) and features a 4.5K True Tone 24-inch Display with 500-nits brightness for a great viewing experience. Apple has also included a much-improved webcam, microphone, and speakers for great video calling experience.


  • iMac features softer colors and thinner borders on the front to allow users to focus on their content, while the back pops in bold, saturated color.
  • To complete the simplified design, iMac comes with a new power connector that attaches magnetically and a beautifully woven 2-meter-long color-matched cable.
  • The new display also features True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts the color temperature as the environment changes for a more natural viewing experience.
  • The powerful 8-core CPU in M1 features the fastest CPU core in low-power silicon. And the 8-core GPU features the fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer.
  • iMac features a 1080p FaceTime HD camera — the best ever in a Mac — which delivers high-quality video and great performance in low light.
  • The new iMac also features the best sound system ever in a Mac. It has two pairs of force-cancelling woofers placed side by side for an impressive bass response, while reducing unintended vibrations. Each pair is balanced with a high-performance tweeter. The result is a six-speaker sound system that produces a massive sound stage with strong, articulate bass and crystal-clear mids and highs.
  • Customers can choose from three models of Magic Keyboard with gorgeous aluminum enclosures that are color-matched to iMac. And for the first time, Touch ID comes to iMac.
  • Every iMac features two Thunderbolt ports for superfast data transfers, giving customers high-performance options to connect to more devices, including support for up to a 6K display, like Apple Pro Display XDR, and Wi-Fi 6 delivers faster wireless performance. The 8-core iMac configuration offers two additional USB-C ports and also features a 1Gbps Ethernet port in the power adapter, allowing for a less cluttered desktop.

The new iMac starts at $1299 and it will be available from April 30th. The iMac with 8-core GPU starts at $1,499.
