Apple iMac revamp adds 4K, 5K, and Skylake

Apple has updated its entire line-up of iMac desktop computers, kitting models out with high-grade new displays.

The company’s 21.5-inch iMac now features a 4K display for the very first time.

What’s more, the every 27-inch iMac model will now ship with a super-high resolution 5K screen.

Apple has also updated the processing and graphical potential of its iMacs, which now also feature two Thunderbolt 2 ports and new storage options.

There are also a number of new wireless accessories, including the new Magic Trackpad 2, which offers up Apple’s pressure sensitive Force Touch technology, as featured on this year’s 12-inch MacBook.

From the first iMac to today, the spirit of iMac has never wavered – deliver the ultimate desktop experience with the latest technologies, gorgeous displays and cutting-edge designs,” says Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing.

He adds: “These are the most stunning iMacs we’ve ever made. With our gorgeous new Retina displays, more powerful processors and graphics and all-new Magic accessories, the new iMac continues to redefine the ultimate desktop experience.”


Apple’s new 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display has been upgraded with Intel’s sixth-generation Core processors, as well as high-performance AMD graphics.

The 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display, meanwhile, now features a fifth-generation Intel Core processor, as well as enhanced Intel Iris Pro Graphics.

Apple is also offering a number of new Fusion Drive storage options, include a new lower-priced configuration that sees a 1TB hard-disk drive paired with 24GB of SSD storage.

The Fusion Drive is also available in 2TB and 3TB variants, with a further 128GB of flash storage to boot.

Apple’s new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 have all been revamped, compared to their predecessors.

The new Magic Keyboard has a sleeker design that Apple says is 13% smaller than the previous model.

The Magic Mouse 2 is “lighter” and “sturdier”, and has an optimised foot design for a smoother glide.

Meanwhile, the Magic TrackPad 2 has a 29% larger surface area, and features Force Touch.

All of the new iMacs will ship with OS X El Capitan as standard, and are available to buy today.
