What’s new for the Apple computer in 2021?

MAC. It’s hard to talk about Apple’s success without going through the famous Macs. The Apple brand computer remains one of the most widely used references in the world to this day. New models are already planned for the month of May, offering the opportunity to come back to the various existing and upcoming versions in detail.

Summary

Apple Macintosh computers don’t date back to yesterday. The first models were marketed in the early 1980s and have evolved since then. Mac computers differ from their counterparts in terms of their components and operating system. Macs are still available in various versions today and continue to receive hardware updates as Apple technologies evolve. There are currently two main types of Macs reserved for individuals (iMac and Mac mini) and a third iteration that is reserved for professionals (Mac Pro). Apple presented the latest version of these Macs on April 20, 2021 during its keynote. These new iMacs are available in 7 colors and feature the new M1 chip for more performance, improved audio devices, as well as the camera and Touch ID functionality.

The new iMacs, which were barely announced at the keynote conference on April 20, 2021, are already causing a stir and can soon be pre-ordered on April 30. These computers made in Apple are already well known, be it in terms of their release date, their price or their features.

The new iMac 2021 is available for pre-order starting this Friday, April 30th. Its release date is estimated to be mid-May 2021 on Apple’s official website and through several authorized resellers. These availabilities apply to all versions of the new 24-inch iMac 2021.

This new computer will be available in three different versions, the features and prices of which will vary depending on your choice:

The 24-inch iMac from 1449 euros has 256 GB of storage and two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports. It is not compatible with Touch ID technology. The 24-inch iMac from 1669 euros offers the same options, with the added bonus of two USB 3 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and compatibility with Touch ID. The 24-inch iMac from 1899 euros offers the same options as the version mentioned above, but with 512 GB of storage.

Note that these deals all include the new 24-inch iMac, power cables, a Magic Mouse, a USB-C / Lightning cable, and a Magic keyboard.

This new generation of iMac differs from the previous ones in one small but significant element: the integrated M1 chip. This chip that Apple is very proud of is already featured on the latest MacBook Air and Mac Mini. If the brand regularly praises it, it’s not in vain: tests show that this new chip significantly increases the performance of the machines it equips. It’s a little powerhouse but remains a very good student in terms of consumption and now has support for Wi-Fi 6 and USB 4 ports.

These new iMacs complete the range of iMacs already on the market, in addition to the desktop computer offerings of the Mac mini and Mac Pro.

The iMac is the base product from Cupertino when it comes to desktop computers. The latter comes in different versions depending on its size and configuration, but not all are available for purchase. Here are the models that are still on the market:

21.5 inches with Intel Core i5 processor (from 1249 euros) 27 inches with Retina 5K display and Interl Core i9 processor (from 1999 euros)

Note that these configurations are scalable and that their prices can change based on stocks and news.

All of these configurations have a screen, mouse, keyboard, and all of the power cables required for proper function.

The Mac mini was released in its first version in early 2005. It’s a very small desktop computer. When shipped without a screen, keyboard, or mouse, the price is generally lower than iMacs, which come with all of the peripherals needed to use them. Although the price may vary depending on stock levels and various possible offers, the latter is usually around 799 euros.

The Mac Pro is a real Apple-branded war machine and a fairly massive computer tower that combines all of the manufacturer’s technological power. This product, very imposing with dimensions of 52 cm high and a weight of 18 kg, stands in sharp contrast to other Macs, which are much thinner and lighter available. However, the Mac Pro is a real powerhouse that has the Inter Xeon W processor (28 cores), 1.5 TB of storage and 8 TB of storage.
