The 24-inch M3 iMac features Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3. Also included is a built-in 1080p camera and studio-quality microphones, which Apple calls “an unmatched video conferencing experience.” The new iMac has a six-speaker sound system that supports Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos. Other features include Continuity and Universal Clipboard, which makes working with an iMac and iPhone from the same account much easier.
Apple looks to impress with the exterior design of the new iMac. The all-in-one unit is just 11.5 millimeters thick and comes in various bright colors. The 8-core base model is available in green, pink, blue, and silver, while the 10-core model is offered in those colors as well as yellow, orange, or purple.
The iMac with M3 is also built with Apple’s sustainability goals in mind. It contains 100% recycled aluminum and rare earth magnets, plus recycled tin soldering in several of its printed circuit boards. It also includes 100% recycled gold in the plating of some circuit boards, which is a first for Apple, and the iMac is free of several harmful substances, like beryllium, brominated flame retardants, and mercury. All the wood fiber in its packaging is recycled or sourced from “responsibly managed” forests. These align with Apple’s stated intentions to become completely carbon-neutral by 2030.
