It’s the update many Mac fans have been waiting for as Apple finally reboots its desktop PC. Yes, the iMac has received a total overhaul with a new look, Apple M1 processor and even Touch ID in the wireless keyboard.

The new look also extends to the screen with the updated 4.5K Retina 24-inch display that shrinks the bezels and now pushes closer to the edge of the case, meaning you get more room for your content. This new screen also features Apple’s smart True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts the color temperature as the environment changes for a more natural viewing experience, and there is an anti-glare coating to improve viewing in all lighting conditions. For an evening movie, there are 1.3 million pixels and over a billion colors, plus your eyes will get 500 nits of brightness, which means you should be able to view the content even in a sunlit room.

Apple makes a lot of noise about the new slim look of its iMac, but don’t think for a minute that this thin design means less power. That’s because the aluminum case houses the latest M1 processor, which Apple says will deliver improved performance. In fact, the company boasts that users will see up to 85 percent faster CPU performance and up to 2x faster GPU performance for select apps like Affinity Photo and Photoshop.

To further enhance the experience of using the iMac, there are six Dolby Atmos powered speakers, studio microphones and a much better 1080p Face ID camera to help boost those all-important Zoom calls. That boosted webcam has been something many have wanted for a while, so it’s great to see Apple finally bring this upgrade to its latest Mac.

On the back of the case are two Thunderbolt ports for super-fast data transfers, giving customers powerful options to connect to more devices, including support for up to a 6K display.

Finally, there is an update to the keyboard with some options that now comes with Touch ID technology, which allows you to easily unlock the iMac and make online purchases with Apple Pay. Both the keyboard and mouse are also color-matched to the Mac itself.

“M1 is a giant leap forward for the Mac, and today we’re proud to introduce the all-new iMac, the first Mac designed around the groundbreaking M1 chip,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

With its striking design in seven stunning colors, immersive 4.5K Retina display, the best camera, microphones and speakers ever in a Mac, and Touch ID, combined with the stunning performance of M1 and the power of macOS Big Sur, the new iMac takes everything people love about iMac to a whole new level. ”
