Everything Apple announced, April 2021: new iMac, iPad, AirTags

Tuesday morning, Apple hosted its first hardware announcement event of the year. We were waiting to see new iPads, and Apple showed them off. But the company also unveiled a lot more: newly redesigned iMacs, a new Apple TV 4K with an updated remote control, and a location-broadcasting iPhone accessory called AirTags.

The carefully produced virtual event was filled with information and even more new products. Here’s everything Apple has announced.

New iMacs

Last fall, Apple updated the 27 inch IMac with faster processors and better graphics capabilities, but Apple has been around for years really revised the iMac. Thanks in large part to the company’s relatively new and customized M1 chip, Apple was able to ditch the bulky thermal system of previous iMacs and finally give the desktop PC a proper makeover. The company today unveiled a completely redesigned hardware, an ultra-thin all-in-one machine that’s about 50% of the volume of previous models.

The new iMac has a 24-inch, 4.5K screen, and comes in seven vibrant colors: green, yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, and silver. It has an updated 1080p front camera with a new sensor, new microphones (Apple says the best mics ever in an iMac), and six speakers that support spatial audio and Dolby Atmos. He also has a new foot; supports TouchID, Apple’s fingerprint-based authentication system; and has a smaller load block that includes an Ethernet port. But the big sale with the new iMac will undoubtedly be its power and speed. It’s supposed to be fast; Apple claims it wakes up instantly and should be 85% faster overall than the previous iMac (which, of course, ran on Intel silicon).

However, you’ll pay for that power and speed: the new iMac 2021 starts at $ 1,299 and will cost $ 1,499 if you want to boost specs even more. They are available to order now.

New iPad Pro

The iPad Pro 2021 comes in a refreshed 11-inch model and a more feature-rich 12.9-inch model.
