Apple launches new iMacs with 4K and 5K displays

Today, Apple announced a refresh to its iMac family, the 21.5-inch model now comes with a new 4K display, which is a big step up from the previous generation model that came with a full HD 1080p screen. But that’s not all…

The company also upgraded every 27-inch iMac, they all now come with a beautiful 5K Retina display. The updated iMacs feature more powerful processors and graphics, two Thunderbold 2 ports and new storage options that make the high-performance Fusion Drive even more affordable.

In addition to the refreshed iMacs, Apple introduced a new lineup of wireless accessories including the all-new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2. Apple says these “Magic devices have been redesigned to feel more comfortable than ever, and feature rechargable batteries that completely eliminate the need for disposable batteries.”

21.5-inch iMac with 4K Retina display
The 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display has a screen resolution of 4,096 x 2,034, which results in 9.4 million pixels in total. That’s over four times more than the previous generation.

27-inch iMac with 5K Retina Display
The larger 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina Display has a screen resolution 2,560 x 1,440, which results in a stunning 14.7 million pixels. That’s seven times more than a HD display.

The new Retina displays feature a wider color gamut that provides a 25% larger color space. This means there’s more available colors to render than the standard sRGB screens, so colors will be more vivid, hold more detail, and will look more lifelike.

“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”
