Apple launched its next-generation iMac with the latest Apple Silicon M1 chip at the Spring Reloaded event. It features a newly redesigned chassis that features a 24-inch 4.5K Retina display, with 11.3 million pixels, 500 nits of brightness, and over a billion colors, delivering a brilliant and vivid viewing experience.
It also includes a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, studio-quality mics, and a six-speaker sound system that delivered the best camera and audio ever in a Mac. There is a Touch ID that comes to iMac for the first time, making it easier than ever to securely log in, make purchases with Apple Pay, or switch user profiles with the touch of a finger.
The iMac is now powered by the latest Apple M1 chipset with an 8-core CPU and up to an 8-core GPU. It comes with 8GB unified memory and the 16-core Apple Neural Engine that should all result in significant performance improvements over the previous generation iMac. All iMac models come with up to four USB-C ports, including two Thunderbolt ports.
The iMac webcam has been improved with a 1080p FaceTime HD camera where Apple claims is “the best ever in a Mac”. The camera can take advantage of the image signal processor inside the M1, enabling high-quality video and better noise reduction. Along with the camera, the iMac now comes with a three-microphone array for clearer calls and voice recordings.
Apple also launched a new Magic Keyboard for iMac that has a dedicated Touch ID sensor onboard. All accessories, and the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad are now available in color-matched with the iMac too.
The new 24-inch Apple iMac comes in a new range of colors – green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver. The price of the new iMac starting at Rs. 1,19,900 and will be available for pre-order on Apple.com and authorized resellers in India from April 30th, and will roll out from the second week of May.
