On Tuesday at Apple’s spring event, Apple launched a whole new army of iMacs. With a perky-perky, fresh array of color options and with its first homegrown desktop and laptop CPU, the M1 chip. After making its debut on the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and on Mac mini earlier, finally, it comes to the iMac 2021 this year. M1 Chip is the main reason, iMac has been transformed from inside and out. Intel versions iMac remain on the market, at least for now. So, we are going to find if it’s worth upgrading freshly launched iMac this year.
New iMac 2021: Design and Colors
New iMac 2021 featuring a compact and remarkably thin design with just 11.5 millimeters. It is the super-thin iMac we have ever seen. Just compare it with your smartphone, it’s barely bigger than that for a computer of this caliber.
With this new iMac, Apple is focused on aesthetics, that’s why they have launched it with the color-matched keyboard, the color-matched mouse, and even the power cable that magnetically connects to it is also color-matched.
The new iMac comes in a spectrum of seven vibrant colors — green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver. Looks like they’ve pulled these six colors from the original Old school Apple logo.
To be more precise, just take a look at this image for comparison with the 2020 iMac.
Gorgeous 24-Inch 4.5K Retina Display
iMac has always been known for its best-in-class display. This tradition is now much more improved with the new iMac 2021. It features a 24-inch 4.5K Retina display with silky white narrower borders and 11.3 million pixels, plus 500 nits of brightness.
The new Retina Display also features True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts the color temperature as the environment changes to provide a more immersive viewing experience.
Performance with Apple’s M1
This is one giant internal-component update with the new iMac 2021. The main reason is to choose an M1 for the new iMac is its eyebrow-raising performance we have already seen with the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro.
M1 is perfectly crafted with the new macOS Big Sur. The new iMac instantly wakes from sleep, everyday tasks feel more faster and fluid, and apps launch with amazing speed. With M1, macOS delivers iCloud and Continuity features that enable the users to work seamlessly without breaking their workflow across other Apple devices.
USB-C and Touch ID
With this new iMac, the first time Apple has provided Touch ID on desktop. Now users can choose from three models of the magic keyboard. Now you can securely open your iMac with the Touch ID wirelessly. All credits go to the M1 Chip. And don’t forget, the Magic keyboard is now color-matched with your Magic mouse and iMac.
Also, it features two Thunderbolt ports for superfast data transfers, including support for up to a 6K display, like Apple Pro Display XDR.
Camera, Mics, and Speakers
iMac features a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, which delivers high-quality video even in low light. To enhance the quality of the image, the M1 chip provides an image signal processor and the Neural Engine, enhancing camera image quality with better noise reduction, greater dynamic range, and improved auto exposure and white balance. And to complement the camera, iMac also features a studio-quality microphone for clearer calls and voice recordings.
For the best-ever sound system, the New iMac comes with a six-speaker system to provide a great sound, articulate bass, and crystal-clear mids and highs.
