Apple’s hugely popular iMac range is getting an upgrade which will bring more power and better performance to these stylish desktop PCs.
The update, which has been announced today, comes to both the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs with a faster processor and better graphics now available on these premium machines.
First up it’s the new 21.5-inch iMac which arrives featuring an 8th-generation quad-core processor, and for the first time, there’s the option to add 6-core processors.
Apple says this will deliver up to 60 per cent faster performance plus there’s the inclusion of Radeon Pro Vega graphics, which can deliver up to 80 per cent faster graphics performance.
If you want the larger iMac then the 27-inch model is also being upgraded.
This means for the first time it features up to 9th-generation 6-core and 8-core processors, delivering up to 2.4 times faster performance.
Again there’s also the Radeon Pro Vega tucked inside which now delivers up to 50 per cent faster graphics performance.
These iMacs keep their iconic all-in-one aluminium design, Retina 4K or 5K displays and wireless keyboard and mouse.
The new 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display starts at $1,299 and the new 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display starts at $1,799 – UK pricing coming soon.
Both are available to order starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 19 on Apple.com and the Apple Store app, and in Apple Stores next week.
It’s been a busy week for Apple with the firm not only updating its iMac range but also refreshing their iPads.
The US technology firm announced yesterday that it is launching a new iPad Air and iPad mini.
Both of these tablets get a major power boost under the hood with the A12 Bionic chip now offering plenty of extra power.
In fact, Apple says that its new mini and Air will deliver three times the performance and nine times faster graphics.
Along with that quicker performance, there’s also Apple Pencil support which allows users to scribble on the True Tone Retina display with this digital stylus.
Both of these new tablets can be purchased with Apple’s eSIM inside which allows them to connect to local networks anywhere in the world and there’s front and rear cameras for taking photographs, shooting movies and making video calls.
If you opt for the larger 10.5-inch Air you can also add a keyboard case which will transform the tablet into a mini PC.
Like the new iMac, these iPads are available now to order and in stores next week.
The new iPad mini and iPad Air come in silver, space grey and gold finishes in 64GB and 256GB configurations.
The new iPad mini starts at £399 for the Wi-Fi model and £519 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model and the 10.5-inch iPad Air starts at £479 for the Wi-Fi model and £599 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model from apple.com, in the Apple Store app and Apple Stores, and is also available through Apple Authorised Resellers and select carriers.
