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 10 Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 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.

As a wedding photographer, I have a loooot of photos to look through and edit - being able to see them more clearly on a larger screen was game changing for me. I don't know how I waited so long to move from macbook to desktop but I'm glad i did!

B&H hands down had the best price on the iMac. I debated for weeks whether I wanted to bite the bullet, because I already have a MacBook that I am very happy with. I just felt like I needed a better set up at my office now that I am doing so much video work. I don't know why I deliberated so much. Got this at B&H for a great price brand spanking new in box. It was packaged great and the shipping was very fast. I have no regrets. Thanks, as always, B&H for such a great product!! I know I can always trust this company.

I love this computer.

Our third iMac to be use as a business working station. Nothing bit a Mac since we don't have any issues with viruses or OS crash. Clean all in one station with just one cable to connect.
