Apple is known for being on the cutting edge of design and technology, which is why it might be surprising to some the Cupertino company hasn’t updated the design of the iMac for nine years. However, the 21.5-inch iMac has mostly stood the test of time even when the MacBook Air finally got a redesign in 2018.

So let’s discuss the new, the old, and the nostalgic when it comes to Apple’s latest 24” iMac.

Now in color

Previously, if you wanted to get a current Mac in color, your only option was a Macbook Air or Pro in gray, silver, or gold. If you loved the consumer-friendly candy-colored CRT monitors when Apple released them back in 1999, the new iMac will provide you with some sentimentality.

Whether Apple was trying to improve our moods amidst the pandemic or give a nod to the 1999 iMac G3 series, we’re not sure, but it’s good to see Apple going back to their colorful roots. But an array of colors aren’t the only improvements that Apple has included in its much-anticipated iMac update.

Even bigger changes

If shiny colors weren’t enough to convince you to upgrade your iMac, we don’t blame you — but there’s a lot more than color to be excited about.

Apple has slimmed the bezels in favor of a larger, 24-inch screen. Although the screen is larger, the new iMac fits into roughly the same space. The new 24-inch screen displays at 4.5K resolution and comes with an anti-reflective coating much like the Apple XDR display, which replaces the old Retina version of the 21.5-inch iMac.

If you’ve owned an iMac in the past, you’ll probably also be excited about the much-anticipated update to the iMac’s camera and microphones. With so many of us using video calls now more than ever, Apple has decided to upgrade the resolution of its in-display front-facing camera to 1080p. Not to mention its M1-optimized camera software can control lighting, color temperature, and exposure for absolutely stunning video quality.

Perfect for small spaces, the 24-inch iMac is only 11.5mm thick and is supported by a small square base, as opposed to the trapezoid that supports previous iMac iterations. With a smaller base and a thinner screen, Apple was able to lighten the 24-inch iMac — thanks in part to the M1 Chip.

M1 across the board

How will the M1 Chip affect the iMac? Since Apple has already added the M1 chipset to its Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, and Mac Mini we pretty much already know what the outcome is going to be. According to a test by CNet, the M1 Chipset outperformed the latest Intel versions of the same products. 

With the new 24-inch iMac joining the MacBook Air, Macbook Pro, Mac Mini, and iPad Pro in the M1-club, the line between laptop, tablet, and desktop are becoming increasingly blurred.

While the MacBook Air used the M1 platform to go completely fanless, the new iMac uses it to replace its entire thermal system with two small fans — due to a huge upgrade in power efficiency. While the M1 Chipset provided a battery life boost in Apple’s laptops, it amounts to quieter fans and lower power consumption in the new iMac.

Summary and Options

There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to Apple’s new iMac. Whether you’re looking forward to the sleek-looking larger screen with tiny bezels or the bright colors that remind you of booting up that old CRT near the turn of the century — Apple has designed another masterpiece.
Or perhaps you’re more excited about the combination of a new M1 chip and higher resolution screen — of course paired with Apple’s patented, M1-optimized, camera software.

Whether you’re into performance or aesthetics, this new iMac is sure to impress — and it even has a headphone jack.

Here are the configuration options for Apple’s new 24-inch iMac:
