Apple iMac 27-inch 2020 overview

Design and Display

Before you get excited, it’s not the ARM-based iMac that you may have been waiting for. It’s not even a major change to the last generation’s iMac. From the outside, there is nothing differentiating the two. It features a 27-inch screen with bezels surrounding the screen. On the bottom, there is thick metal chin with Apple’s logo.

Talking about the display, the 5K Retina display supports True Tone technology. It will adjust the color temperature of the screen automatically based on the ambient lighting. Similarly, the display features 1 billion colors, 500 nits of brightness, and support for P3 wide color. Users can now pay extra for a nano-texture glass coating. Apple says it is similar to Pro Display XDR, which was launched last year.
