iMac - The vision is brighter than ever.
A desktop experience that draws you in and keeps you there. This is the idea behind today's iMac. And now that idea is more powerful than ever. The new iMac is packed with all-new processors, the latest graphics technologies, innovative storage and higher-bandwidth connectivity. And it all comes to life on the brightest and most colourful Retina display iMac has ever seen. So you get an even more immersive experience - and a scintillating new way to take it all in.
Performance - Think fast. We did.
Faster and more powerful than ever, iMac is now equipped with seventh-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, and the latest high-performance graphics. Storage kicks into high gear as well, with the speedy and spacious Fusion Drive now available in standard configurations of both the 27-inch and 21.5-inch Retina models. So you can do everything you love to do on iMac. All at maximum velocity.
Graphics that render you speechless.
iMac features powerful new Radeon Pro 500 series graphics that make a spectacle of everything you see. The 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display is loaded with up to 8GB of dedicated VRAM. And the 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display ignites with up to 4GB. Both deliver visual effects and 3D graphics that exhibit raw power in its most polished form. On top of that, you get advanced video editing capabilities. Now you can edit multicam projects in Final Cut Pro X with up to five streams of full-resolution 4K video.
Accelerate your every move.
An all-new seventh-generation Intel Core processor in every iMac. It's more speed than iMac has ever reached before - taking the 27-inch model up to 4.2GHz, and the 21.5-inch model up to 3.6GHz. And Turbo Boost gives you even more power when you're using processor-intensive applications like Logic Pro or Final Cut Pro. It all takes place behind the scenes, but you'll see the difference in so many ways.
Storage that's lightning-fast. And quick on the uptake.
Storage is about space. But it's also about speed. A Fusion Drive gives you the best of both worlds. The apps and files you use the most are automatically stored on fast flash storage, while everything else moves to a high-capacity hard drive. From booting up to launching apps to importing photos, it's faster and more efficient to do it all with Fusion Drive. And it's now standard on all 27-inch models, and on the top configuration of the 21.5-inch model.
A virtual first for iMac.
VR makes its debut on iMac, with the ability to edit 360-degree video in apps like Final Cut Pro and create cutting-edge 3D VR content.
Retina Display - Retina at its most brilliant.
The Retina display shines even more vividly on the new iMac. With a billion colours and 500 nits of brightness, graphics leap off the screen in a whole new light. And the pixel density is so high that you won't detect a single one. Text is so clear and sharp, your email and documents will look smarter than ever. It's simply the best Mac Retina display yet.
The colour you shoot is the colour you see.
The world is full of spectacular colours, and iMac brings more of them to your screen. The Retina display uses P3 colour that shifts away from standard white LEDs to advanced red/green phosphor LEDs. So all three colours - red, green and blue - are more equally represented and show off real-world colour with more balance and precision.
Connectivity - Thunderbolt 3. Make some powerful new connections.
Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports come standard on all iMac models, each delivering up to 40-Gbps data transfer for external drives and cameras, and twice the bandwidth for video and display connectivity. Four USB 3 ports give you plenty of options for connecting peripherals, including your printer, iPhone, thumb drive and more. And with ultrafast three-stream Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology, you're instantly connected to all your favourite content.
Turn your workspace into a showcase.
Thunderbolt 3 lets you add one 5K display to the amazing one already on your iMac. Or, as another option, you can connect two 4K displays and bring over 32 million pixels into play.
Design - A lot can happen in 5 millimetres.
iMac has always been the ultimate in form and function: an all-in-one computer that puts everything - display, processor, graphics, storage, memory and more - inside one simple, stylish enclosure. The new iMac includes the most advanced, most brilliant desktop display we've ever built, and it's filled with all-new technologies that take power and performance to a whole new level. Yet it's still just 5 millimetres thin at its edge.
Apple Accessories - Rechargeable.Remarkable.
The new Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad makes typing, editing spreadsheets and navigating pro apps a breeze. Paired with Magic Mouse 2 or Magic Trackpad 2, it works like magic with iMac.
macOS - It's why there's nothing else like a Mac.
macOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. macOS Sierra introduces Siri to Mac - along with more ways to enjoy your photos, shop securely online and work seamlessly between devices.
Easy to Use - When it's simple to do everything, you can do anything.
On a Mac, everything is designed to work just the way you expect it to - from operating it with simple, intuitive gestures to asking Siri to find a file to having your apps automatically update themselves. Whatever you set out to do on a Mac, there's much less to learn and that much more to accomplish.
Continuity - All your devices. One seamless experience.
Your Mac works with your other Apple devices in ways no other computer can. If you get a call on your iPhone, you can take it on your Mac. And you can copy images, video and text from your iPhone, then paste to your nearby Mac - or vice versa. You can even unlock your Mac just by walking up to it wearing your Apple Watch.
Copy images, video or text from an app on your iPhone. Then paste into another app on your nearby Mac. And, of course, it works the other way around too - so you can browse a recipe on your Mac and paste the ingredients straight into the shopping list on your iPhone.
Automatically log in to your Mac when you're wearing your Apple Watch. No password typing required.
Calls and Messages.
Make and receive phone calls on your iPhone - without picking up your iPhone. When a call comes in, just click Accept on your Mac. When you want to make a call on your Mac, just click the number. Your Mac is a whiz with messages too. All the texts and iMessages that appear on your iPhone also appear on your Mac.
When your Mac and iOS devices are near each other, they can automatically pass whatever you're doing from one device to another. So you can start writing an email on a Mac and take it with you to your meeting on your iPhone.
With just a few clicks on your Mac, you can use AirDrop to quickly transfer any file from any folder to a nearby Mac or iOS device, and vice versa. Even when there's no Wi-Fi network available.
Built-in Apps - Apps as powerful and elegant as your Mac. Because they're designed for it.
With every Mac, you get a collection of powerful apps. They're the same apps you use on your iPhone or iPad, so they'll feel instantly familiar. They all work with iCloud, so your schedule, contacts and notes are always up to date everywhere. And because they're native apps - not web apps in a browser - they take full advantage of the power of your Mac to deliver the fastest possible performance and more robust features.
Organise, edit and share a lifetime's worth of photos and videos, and rediscover your favourite memories. Transform home videos into unforgettable movies or quickly share clips with your favourite people. And easily create music like the pros with a virtual session drummer perfectly suited to your style.
Create beautiful documents with beautiful simplicity. Visualise your data precisely and persuasively in spreadsheets with images, text and shapes. And make stage-worthy presentations, using powerful graphics tools and dazzling cinematic effects to bring your ideas to life.
Easily manage all of your email accounts in one simple, powerful app that works with email services like iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL and Microsoft Exchange. Send unlimited messages to anyone on any Apple device, using the same Messages app on your Mac as you do on your iPhone. And make unlimited high-quality video and audio calls straight from your Mac with FaceTime.
Keep your iCloud, Google and Exchange calendars in one place; create separate calendars for home, work and school; and view them all or just the ones you want. Keep all your contact info up to date on all your devices, and automatically import numbers, addresses and photos from Facebook, LinkedIn, Google and even Microsoft Exchange. And keep track of little and big things with notes that can include URLs, photos, map locations and more.
Surf the web on a fast, energy-efficient browser with built-in privacy features that keep you in control of your information. Map out new destinations from your desktop, with gorgeous 3D city views in Flyover, point-to-point directions and comprehensive public transport directions. And with Spotlight, instantly search your entire Mac or get results from the Internet in just a few keystrokes.
Enjoy the music and movies you already have on your beautiful Retina display, or discover soon-to-be favourites. Find the latest apps and extensions for your Mac, right there on your Mac. And take advantage of the world-class bookstore built into your Mac, where you can peruse the latest titles from your desktop.
iCloud - All your stuff. On your Mac, and everywhere else you want it. Automatically.
Every Apple app uses iCloud - it's the magic behind the seamless experience you have with all your Apple devices. So you always have your photos, videos, documents, email, notes, contacts, calendars and more on whatever device you're using. And any file you create is not only available to you anywhere, it's also safely backed up in the cloud. And with iCloud Drive, you can access files from your Mac desktop and Documents folder on any iOS device. It's all done automatically. Just like that.
Privacy and Security - We believe your data belongs to you. Full stop.
Everything you do with your Mac is protected by strong privacy and security features. That's because we build data security into everything we make, from the start.
Compatibility - Need to work with Windows? Mac does that too.
With macOS, it's easy to transfer your files, photos and other data from a Windows PC to your Mac. Work with popular file types such as JPEG, MP3 and PDF, as well as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. And, of course, you can run Microsoft Office natively on a Mac. If you want, you can even run Windows on your Mac.
Accessibility - We make sure that everyone is able to use a Mac.
macOS comes standard with a wide range of assistive technologies that help people with disabilities experience what Mac has to offer, providing many features you won't find in other operating systems. These include VoiceOver, FaceTime, Switch Control and Text to Speech - all designed to help anyone get more out of Mac.
