San Francisco: Apple on Wednesday introduced an all-new iMac featuring a much more compact and remarkably thin design, enabled by the M1 chip. The new iMac features a 24-inch 4.5K Retina display with 11.3 million pixels, 500 nits of brightness and over a billion colours, delivering a brilliant and vivid viewing experience. It also includes a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, studio-quality mics, and a six-speaker sound system -- the best camera and audio ever in a Mac. Apple Event 2021: iPad Pro With M1 Chip, AirTags, iPhone 12 Purple, Apple TV 4K, New iMac & Apple Card Family Launched.
