All-New iMac Introduced: M1 Chip, 1080p FaceTime Camera, And New Colors

Alongside AirTag and sixth-generation Apple TV, Apple also unveiled a brand new, redesigned 24-inch iMac, the new device is equipped with an M1 chip and an improved 1080p FaceTime front camera, and there are a variety of colors to choose from.

“M1 is a gigantic leap forward for the Mac, and today we’re excited to introduce the all-new iMac, the first Mac designed around the breakthrough M1 chip,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With its striking design in seven stunning colors, its immersive 4.5K Retina display, the best camera, mics, and speakers ever in a Mac, and Touch ID, combined with the amazing performance of M1 and the power of macOS Big Sur, the new iMac takes everything people love about iMac to an entirely new level.”
