Apple updates iMacs with Retina displays and unveils new wireless accessories


Apple has updated its iMac computer line-up with Retina displays and introduced a range of new wireless accessories – the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and the Magic Trackpad 2.

Now most of Apple’s iMac desktop computers feature a Retina Display – a 4K screen on the 21.5-inch model and a 5K screen on every 27-inch iMac.

The screens have a resolution of 4096 x 2304 (21.5-inch) and 5120 x 2880 (27-inch) and feature a wider colour gamut for sharp images and true-to-life colours.

The 21.5-inch iMacs are powered by dual-core Intel Core i5 processors ranging in speeds from 1.6Ghz to 3.1Ghz and Turbo Boost from 2.7Ghz to 3.6Ghz.


There is also 1TB storage and 8GB RAM standard.

The 27-inch iMacs have quad-core Intel Core i5 processors running at 3.2Ghz and 3.3Ghz and with Turbo Boosts of 3.6Ghz to 3.9Ghz and are also configurable with 4Ghz Intel Core i7 processors.

They come with 1TB or 2TB Fusion Drives and 8GB RAM configurable up to 16GB or 32GB.

On the connectivity side there are two Thunderbolt 2 ports, four USB 3.0 ports and a SDXC card slot.


These new iMacs come pre-loaded with OS X El Capitan software and include the new Magic Keyboard and the Magic Mouse 2 or Magic Trackpad 2.

The new Magic Keyboard ($165) has a full size keyboard and new design that actually takes up 13 per cent less space on your desk than the previous wireless keyboard.

Magic Mouse 2 ($129) is lighter and sturdier and has a new foot design for a smoother glide on the desktop.


Magic Trackpad 2 ($199) has a 29 per cent larger surface and also introduces Force Touch to the desktop for the first time.
The 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display is available now in three models priced at $2,799, $3,099 and $3,599.

The 21.5-inch iMac Retina 4K display is also available from today and starts at $2,299 with non Retina 21.5-inch iMacs still available at $1,699 and $1,999.
