Another product introduced at the Apple Spring Loaded event was the iMac desktop computer, updated with the Apple M1 processor, as expected . Expanding its Apple Silicon -based product range, Apple also makes significant changes in terms of design with color options, thinner chassis and shrinking bezels for the 2021 model iMac.
2021 iMac Specifications
The new iMac, which comes with a 24-inch and 4.5K Retina panel, has thin bezels and a highly tapered side profile. Apple says the transition to the M1 chipset, which has many system components, can significantly reduce the size of the circuit board, and therefore the case is 50 percent smaller than the previous model. The new iMac has evolved significantly from Apple’s conventional approach to choosing fairly neutral colors for its computers.
Apple has also improved the camera and microphone in the iMac. Coming with the 1080p FaceTime camera, the product has improved image processing to make the image even better. In addition, your voice will be transmitted to the other party in the best way with two new beamforming microphones that promise a better sound experience. Also, the speakers have had their share of improvements.
With the Apple M1 chipset, Apple promises better performance. It offers an 85 percent faster processor, 50 percent faster graphics and 3x faster machine learning processing speeds. The iMac comes with a redesigned magnetic power connector with a matching fabric-covered cable. The power adapter also includes an Ethernet port when converting power so you have a single cable that connects directly to the iMac. Other features include 4 USB-C ports, two of which support Thunderbolt.
Apple is also redesigning accessories compatible with the iMac. The new Magic Keyboard now includes Touch ID technology for easier desktop login. Both Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are compatible with the new iMac models.
