Apple Just Unveiled Its Newest 27-inch iMac with a 10-Core Intel I9, Nano-Texture Glass Display, and a 1080p FaceTime Camera By Jesse Hollington While it may not be the major redesign that many have been hoping for, Apple quietly announced the anticipated refresh of its 27-inch iMac today, and it's actually a pretty serious up date in terms of internal specs , improving Apple's most popular desk top Mac in a few key areas. This newest 27-inch iMac is likely the last Intel- based iMac we'll ever see, since Apple is expected to significantly ramp up the transition to its own silicon next year; following the release of the new ARM - based chips on its 13 -inch MacBook lineup, which is reportedly coming later this year, Apple will likely release a major iMac redesign next year as the first Apple Silicon- based desk top computer. For now, however, there's a lot to like about Apple's newest 27-inch iMac, and in fact, as exciting as Apple's new chips will surely be, there are some good reasons to stick with Intel for now, which means that this could be the iMac that some folks have been waiting or. In addition to the obvious spec bump to a 10th-gen Intel processor, which we pretty much all knew was coming, Apple has also improved the quality of the 27-inch 5K Retina Display, thanks in part to a new nano-texture glass option, as well as bumping the specs of the camera, speakers, and mics.
