During its “Spring Loaded” event, Apple introduced a new iMac computer, which was built from scratch and is completely centered around Apple’s M1 chipset.
The new iMac has a 24′ 4.5K display (4480 × 2520p), with narrower bezels. There is still a large frame at the bottom, but that is why the back of the display is flat instead of curved as in the previous model. The screen is equipped with Apple True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts the color temperature.
Facetime camera now has a 1080p resolution and a larger sensor. The camera and microphones together enable better video calling.

The new iMac is only 11.5 millimeters thin, and the company promises that this model will be quieter and cooler than the previous one, thanks to the M1 chip. The new model has 2 small fans, which replace the awkward cooling system from the previous generation.
A new magnetic cable is also present, while Ethernet can be connected to the adapter. There are 4 USB-C ports (not in basic one) on the back of the computer, two of which support Thunderbolt.
The base iMac model has 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD (which is not enough). Along with the computer, Apple also introduced a new keyboard, mouse, and trackpad with matching colors that match the color palette of the new iMac line. The Magic keyboard has a Touch ID login key, which is a nice addition in 2021.
