The brand-new M1 iMac comes with several new accessories like Magic Trackpad, Magic Mouse, Magic Keyboard, and Touch ID.
During today’s Spring Loaded event, Apple unveiled a brand-new M1 iMac featuring a more compact and remarkably thin design, retrofitted with the powerful M1 chip. Available in a variety of stunning colors to match a user’s personal style and brighten any space. The new iMac features a 24-inch 4.5K Retina display with 11.3 million pixels, 500 nits of brightness, and over a billion colors that deliver a brilliant and vivid viewing experience.
The new M1 iMac features new accessories including Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard with Touch ID
The highlight product is the updated Magic Keyboard that comes with support for Touch ID, offering quick access to macOS and even allowing users to switch profiles with the touch of their finger. The keyboard comes in seven different colors, the same options as the M1 iMac. The Touch ID functions wirelessly, which means that users do not have to connect their keyboards to their iMac via Lightning cable.
The Magic Keyboard uses a dedicated security component on the keyboard that communicates directly with Secure Enclave in M1, creating an encrypted channel to protect users’ fingerprint data from end-to-end. Users will be able to experience a secure, fast, and easy method of unlocking their Mac or making a purchase with Apple Pay using the new Magic Keyboard. Customers can also opt to choose a Magic Keyboard without Touch ID and a Numeric Keypad.
There were no major changes made to the Magic Mouse except for the new color options. Apple also unveiled Magic Trackpads with new color options and a refined shape so it matches with the new keyboards.
The new iMacs are already up on Apple’s website, though the accessories and the new computer will be made available in the second half of May, pre-orders will start from April 30th. The starting price of the new iMac is $1299.
