Apple iMac 2021: What’s new?
The new Apple iMac will feature a completely new design with a very thin frame. This makes the iMac light and nearly invisible from the sides. There is also a single sheet of glass across the front surface. The new iMac will be available in seven bright and vibrant colours. Thanks to the new M1 system-on-a-chip architecture, the M1 uses a smaller logic board and hence reduces its overall volume by over 50%.

The iMac is also powered with macOS Big Sur. Apple claims the new Apple iMac is up to 85 per cent faster than before. For GPU performance, the new iMac is claimed to be up to two times than before, helping with faster photo and video edits. The iMac will also support iPhone and iPad apps like Headspace and games like Sky. Calls and texts will also come straight to the new iMac. There is also cross-clipboard support that allows you to copy elements on the iPhone and paste them on the new iMac.
There are also 4 USB C ports for I/O, along with a new power connector that attaches magnetically. The ethernet connection will also now connect to the power cable now to keep the desktop space cleaner.
