Meet the new Apple iMac with the M1 chip

By Clare Duffy

Apple announced a redesigned iMac with M1, the company's new internal chip.

The new chip has allowed Apple to reduce the size of the internal hardware, incorporating a smaller motherboard and replacing the thermal system that keeps the computer cool with two small fans.

The width of the new iMac only measures 11.5 millimeters.

The M1 chip will also make iMac applications run faster, improve the speed of machine learning and allow iPhone applications such as Zillow and Headspace to be used from the iMac screen, Apple executives said Tuesday.

The iMac will now have a 24-inch 4.5K screen with 11.3 million pixels.

And it comes in seven colors, including peach, mint, and lavender.

For users who continue to work from home, Apple has also improved the iMac's camera.

1080p camera features include automatic white balance, noise reduction, and tone mapping to help you look your best.

The computer also has a new microphone designed to reduce feedback noise so that it sounds better, too.

The new iMac starts at $ 1,299 for four colors, and $ 1,499 for the other three colors with additional features.

It will be available in the second half of May.

What else could we see today?

Apple TV, privacy features, and more

By Samantha Kelly

Here are other updates Apple could release today:

Apple tv

Not only should Apple TV get a new processor and support for better refresh rates for games, but a redesigned controller could function as a physical locator for AirTags, according to tech blog 9to5Mac.

AirPods 3

The next generation of Apple's wireless headphones is believed to have a design more in keeping with its higher-end AirPods Pro, along with spatial audio support and touch controls.

AirPods have cultivated a cult group over the years, becoming a fashion and status symbol, but Apple may wait until later this year to show off a new model.

MacBooks

Apple's MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are also due for a refresh, but it's unclear if they will do so next week.

Apple recently discontinued its iMac Pro line, which was once the most powerful computer the company offered, and its original HomePod to focus more on the HomePod mini.

software

Apple could also guide users through a long-awaited iOS 14.5 software update focused on privacy.

Its upcoming App Tracking Transparency feature will require app developers to explicitly disclose how they collect user data, what it will be used for, and will require user consent before they download or update apps from the App Store.

New emojis are also likely to appear, including one of a less graphic syringe amid the rollout of the covid-19 vaccine.

Get ready for the new iPad

By Samantha Kelly

Apple's spring events are usually a great mix - we've seen launches around education, its streaming services, and the inexpensive iPhone SE.

But this year Apple is expected to show off an updated iPad Pro with a faster processor, 5G capability, a Thunderbolt port so it can connect to more external monitors, and a Mini LED display.

The screen is expected to increase brightness, offer a higher contrast ratio, improve energy efficiency for longer battery life but be slightly thicker than current versions.

Apple may also show off a redesigned iPad mini with smaller bezels and a larger screen.

But it's unclear if any of these updates will be enough to convince users to update.

Eleftheria Kouri, an analyst at technology market advisory firm ABI Research, said tablet shipments increased significantly in 2020, thanks in part to the education sector and telecommuting.

But that rebound won't last forever.

"Tablet vendors, including Apple, need to introduce a truly game-changing technology feature to drive sales and encourage consumers to replace their old devices - 5G connectivity is one of these key features," Kouri said.

The image included in the press invitations hints at new iPads and augmented reality.
