The new iMac joins the Apple’s family of Mac models powered by M1, including MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini, taking another step in Apple’s transition to Apple’s own silicon.

Also, Touch ID comes to iMac for the first time, making it easier to securely log in, make purchases with Apple Pay, or switch user profiles with the touch of a finger.

The combined power and performance of M1 and macOS Big Sur in the iMac renders demanding workloads like editing 4K video and working with huge images faster, making the iMac suited for those working or studying at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
