Retina Display

Bright and Colorful

Available with a 4K resolution of 4096 x 2304, the Retina display shines beautifully on iMac. With one billion colors and 500 nits of brightness, graphics, text, television shows, and movies are sharp and lifelike, while games also display fine details.

True-to-Life Color

The world is full of color, and iMac brings more of them to your screen. The Retina display uses P3 color that shifts away from standard white LEDs to advanced red-green phosphor LEDs. That means all three colors - red, green, and blue - are more equally represented and show off real-world color with more balance and precision, bringing all your photos and content to life more vividly.

macOS

iMac + macOS

MacOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. It lets you do things you simply can't with other computers. That's because it's designed specifically for the hardware it runs on - and vice versa. macOS has features inspired by its most powerful users but designed for everyone.

iMac + iPhone

Your iMac works seamlessly with your iPhone. Whether you're texting, snapping a photo, or copying and pasting an image, you can move between devices without missing a beat.

iMac + Apps

Powerful creativity and productivity tools live inside every Mac. These apps will help you explore, connect, and work more efficiently. They include Safari, Photos, Mail, Siri, Calendar, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, News, Messages, FaceTime, and Notes.

App Store

Find even more apps in the Mac App Store, including Microsoft Office 365.

Design

Iconic Design & Advanced Engineering

iMac has always stood out in form and function. It is an elegant, quiet, all-in-one computer that puts everything - display, processor, graphics, storage, memory, and more - inside one simple, stylish enclosure. And thanks to its super-slim profile, which measures 5mm at its edge, it fits in almost anywhere, yet stands out everywhere.

Connectivity

Packed with Ports and Possibilities

Two Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports come standard on the iMac, each delivering data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s for external drives and cameras, as well as ample bandwidth for video and display connectivity. Four 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports give you plenty of options for connecting peripherals, including your printer, iPhone, thumb drive, and more. And with fast three-stream Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology, you're instantly connected to all your favorite content.

Turn Your Workspace into a Showcase

Thunderbolt 3 lets you add one 5K display alongside your iMac. Or, you can connect two 4K displays and put over 32 million pixels into play.

Apple Accessories

Keyboard & Mouse

Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Keyboard pair with iMac and come included in the box. If you're looking for extra functionality, Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad and Magic Trackpad 2 are sold separately and offer some additional options.

CAN THE SLOW 5400 RPM HARD DRIVE ON THIS MODEL BE UP GRADED TO A FUSION OR SSD DRIVE? I HAVE READ THAT IMAC 21.5 INCH MODELS HAVE TO HAVE A CONNECTOR TO SWAP IN A SSD DRIVE. PLEASE CLARIFY?
Asked by: Jeff
If equipped with an SSD or a "Fusion Drive" at the initial point of purchase, these models will have a connector present for a PCIe-based "blade" SSD. If they are not equipped with an SSD or a "Fusion Drive" when purchased new, the connector is not present, and secondary storage cannot be added later.

Does this have slot to modify the RAM memory?
Asked by: Srinivas
You CAN upgrade that RAM on this model, but it is not a process that the average person is going to be able to do. I'm a certified Mac tech, and I can do it (so it IS physically possible), but it's not fast or easy.

Asked by: Eleazar
You may be able to connect more than one display to your iMac. To do so, you need a video cable for each display. You might also need an adapter. After you connect the displays to your Mac, you can choose whether to use them as an extended desktop or for video mirroring.
