The new iMacs also include a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, studio-quality microphones, and a six-speaker sound system — the best camera and audio ever on a Mac. Plus, Touch ID is coming to the iMac for the first time, making it easier than ever to securely sign in, make purchases with Apple Pay, or switch user profiles with the touch of a finger. Combining the power and performance of the M1 and macOS Big Sur, apps launch at incredible speed, everyday tasks feel incredibly fast and fluid, and demanding workloads like editing 4K video and working with large images are faster than ever. The new iMac joins the incredible family of Mac models powered by the M1, including the MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini, marking another step forward in Apple’s transition to Apple silicon. The iMac is the most personal, powerful, capable, and fun ever, and customers can pre-order it starting Friday, April 30. iMac will be available in the second half of May.
“The M1 is a huge leap forward for Mac, and today we’re excited to introduce the all-new iMac, the first Mac designed with the groundbreaking M1 chip,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With its striking design in seven stunning colors, an immersive 4.5K Retina display, the best camera, microphone and speakers ever on a Mac, and Touch ID, combined with the M1’s incredible performance and the power of macOS Big Sur, the iMac new takes everything people love about the iMac to a whole new level.”
