iMac 24-inch – Apple M1 chip 8‑core CPU 8‑core GPU – 256GB – 8GB
|Apple announced its first iMac with Apple silicon on April 20, 2021, which was released on May 21. The M1 iMac features a 4480-by-2520 (4.5K) built-in display, 1080p FaceTime camera with an improved image signal processor and three-microphone array, and a six-driver stereo speaker system with a pair of force-cancelling woofers and a tweeter per side, that supports Dolby Atmos and spatial audio. It also adds support for Wi-Fi 6, USB4/Thunderbolt 3, and 6K output to run the Pro Display XDR. External display support is reduced to one display over USB-C/Thunderbolt; the previous 21.5-inch Intel-based model could drive two 4K displays over USB-C/Thunderbolt. The models also include a magnetic power plug and external power supply that can be configured with a Gigabit Ethernet port. The M1 iMac ships with a Magic Mouse 2 or Magic Trackpad 2 with a color-matching aluminum underside. It can be configured with one of three updated Magic Keyboards with rounded corners: a standard version, a version with a Touch ID sensor, and an extended layout version with a numeric keypad and Touch ID. The Magic Keyboards with Touch ID are compatible with other Mac computers with Apple silicon but only ship with the iMac. The M1 iMac features the line's first major redesign since 2012, with slimmer bezels, a flat back and seven color options, the same colors used in Apple's first official logo. It is the first iMac available in multiple colors since the iMac G3. Former Apple Chief Design Officer (CDO) Jony Ive contributed to its design.
