Apple updates the 27-inch iMac with a better display, Retina 5K displays, and new Intel chips

Apple has today given its 27-inch iMac a much-needed update. The new update only applies to the bigger size of the iMac. For months, we have been waiting for a new iMac, and it seems like Apple has now delivered. Well, kind of.

Apple users have been asking for a redesigned iMac, and there have been rumours that Apple is indeed working on one, with much smaller bezels. However, this one is not it. This seems to be one of the Intel Macs that Apple said it had in the pipeline when they announced the move to Apple Silicon earlier this year. It seems like the redesigned iMac will come later, probably next year, with Apple Silicon.

For now, we are getting new 10th Generation Intel chips across the board, with options of up to 10-core i9 chips. Additionally, you also get new AMD graphics. A big feature upgrade this refresh includes is a 1080p webcam, that will apparently deliver a much better image quality thanks to the T2 chip. The iMac is also getting SSD-only storage for all models. The SSD upgrade is applicable to even the 21.5-inch model, and the iMac Pro is getting a CPU-only upgrade.

The 27-inch iMac starts at $1,799 and is up for order now on Thoughts? Hit us up in the comments, down below!
