This extraordinary design is only possible thanks to M1, the first system on a chip for Mac. It makes iMac so thin and compact that it fits in more places than ever.
M1 integrates the processor, graphics, memory, and more onto a single chip. That let us put an entire computer into a space so small it practically disappears
See the big picture. And all the details.
See it all in sharp, glorious detail on the immersive 24-inch 4.5K Retina display. The P3 wide color gamut brings what you’re watching to life in over a billion colors. Images shine with a brilliant 500 nits of brightness. Industry-leading anti-reflective coating delivers greater comfort and readability. And True Tone technology automatically adjusts the color temperature of your display to the ambient light of your environment, for a more natural viewing experience. So whether you’re editing photos, working on presentations, or watching your favorite shows and movies, everything looks incredible on iMac.
M1 and Big Sur.
With great power comes great capability.
M1 is the most powerful chip we’ve ever made. macOS Big Sur is the most advanced desktop operating system in the world. Combined, they take iMac to entirely new levels of performance, efficiency, and security. iMac wakes from sleep almost instantly, apps launch in a flash, and the whole system feels fluid, smooth, and snappy. With up to 85 percent faster CPU performance and up to two times faster graphics performance than standard 21.5-inch iMac models, you can use apps like Xcode and Affinity Photo to compile code in a fraction of the time or edit photos in real time.5 And it runs cool and quiet even while tackling these intense workloads. That’s the power of hardware, software, and silicon — all designed together.
