At today’s presentation, Apple introduced the new iMacs, which are significantly different from their predecessors both externally and internally.
What has changed?
First of all, this is the first iMac that received a proprietary M1 processor. Due to its compactness, the dimensions of the monoblock itself have also decreased — its thickness is only 11.5 millimeters.
But, of course, the most important thing is the juicy colors. For everyone to choose the device to their liking, there are 7 colors to choose from: green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver. Eyes run away! At the same time, the frame around the screen is white everywhere.
The iMac also comes with a new power connector that connects with a magnet, and a beautiful 2-meter-long braided cable in matching color.
And now let’s move on to the display. This is a 24-inch Retina display with a 4.5 K resolution, a wide P3 color gamut, more than 1 billion colors, and a brightness of 500 nits. The screen has an anti-glare coating and supports True Tone technology for auto-adjusting the color depending on the ambient light.
Also available is a FaceTime HD 1080p camera, three studio-quality microphones, a six-speaker sound system with Dolby Atmos support, and accessories in the same color. By the way, the Magic Keyboard keyboard for the first time got Touch ID for unlocking by fingerprint.
