At its Spring Loaded virtual event earlier today, Apple unveiled its M1-powered, completely redesigned 24-inch iMac with a 4.5K Retina display. The new iMac is just 11.5 millimeters thin with a striking side profile that practically disappears, and is available in an array of vibrant colours.
The new 2021 iMac also includes a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, studio-quality mics, and a six-speaker sound system. Also, Touch ID 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 powerful 8-core CPU in M1 features the fastest CPU core in low-power silicon, while the 8-core GPU features the fastest integrated graphics in a personal computer.
The new 24-inch iMac is available to order in Canada beginning Friday, April 30, on apple.com and in the Apple Store app. It will begin arriving to customers and be available in select Apple Store locations and through Apple Authorized Resellers beginning in the second half of May.
