Retina. Now in colossal and ginormous.
- The idea behind iMac has never wavered: to craft the ultimate desktop experience. The best display, paired with high-performance processors, graphics, and storage — all within an incredibly thin, seamless enclosure. And that commitment continues with the all-new 21.5‑inch iMac with Retina 4K display. Like the revolutionary 27‑inch 5K model, it delivers such spectacular image quality that everything else around you seems to disappear. Adding up to the most immersive iMac experience yet — and another big, beautiful step forward.
More than just a display, it’s a vision.
- Accuracy. Brightness. Clarity. Regardless of how you measure the quality of a display, Retina is in a class by itself. The pixel density is so high that you won’t detect a single one while using iMac. Text is so sharp, you’ll feel like you’re reading email and documents on a printed page. And with a new, wider color gamut, the Retina display is able to deliver even more available colors — 25 percent more. So every photo and video you see appears even more true to life.
Innovation from edge to cutting edge.
- An incredible amount of engineering was required to bring the Retina display to the iMac family. Witness a design that’s just 5 mm at its edge — yet entirely capable of making everything around you fade into the distance. This ensures that nothing gets between you and your favorite content. Seamless and beautiful, iMac with Retina display is an elegant addition to your workspace, representing a depth of technology at the height of design.
Storage that’s lightning fast. And whip smart.
- Storage is about space. But it’s also about speed and performance. A Fusion Drive gives you the best of both worlds. This innovative storage technology intelligently combines speedy flash storage with a high-capacity hard drive. Your frequently used apps, documents, and photos stay on the faster flash storage, while infrequently used items move to the hard drive. And as the system learns how you work, you’ll experience faster application launching and quicker file access. Fusion Drive can be configured with up to 3TB of storage. But for those who want the ultimate performance, there’s an all-flash option that’s now up to 2.5 times faster than the previous version.
- Up to 3TB Fusion Drive
Built for speed. And everything else.
- Faster and more powerful than ever, the 27‑inch iMac is equipped with a sixth-generation Intel Core processor and the latest AMD high-performance graphics. And the 21.5‑inch iMac features a fifth-generation Intel Core processor and enhanced Intel Iris Pro Graphics. Both deliver stirring visual effects with maximum impact — at maximum speed.
- Up to 3.7 teraflops of graphics compute power
- Up to 4.0GHz quad-core i7 processor
Redesigned. Rechargeable. Remarkable.
- The all-new Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 have been redesigned to make every interaction feel amazing. From a built‑in rechargeable battery to a new lower profile, they’ve been enhanced to deliver more comfort and functionality than ever before. Paired with iMac, they work magic together.

- Magic Trackpad 2

Fast connections for high performance.
- iMac is astonishingly thin. But it’s jam-packed with advanced technology. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports come standard on all iMac models and deliver blazing-fast data transfer for external drives and cameras. Four USB 3 ports give you plenty of options for connecting peripherals, including your printer, video devices, and more. And with ultrafast three-stream Wi‑Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, you’re instantly connected to all your favorite content.

|Keyboard & Trackpad
The redesigned Magic Keyboard comes standard with your iMac. It’s wireless and rechargeable (so you won’t be replacing batteries), with an ultracompact, edge-to-edge design that wastes no surface space. It has an improved scissor mechanism, optimized key travel, and a lower profile that increase control and comfort. And it pairs immediately with your iMac right out of the box.
Magic Mouse 2
The new design of Magic Mouse 2 lets it glide more smoothly across your desk. And since it supports Multi-Touch, you can use simple gestures on its surface to do things such as swipe between web pages and scroll through documents. So if you prefer to use a wireless mouse but want some of the benefits of Multi-Touch, Magic Mouse 2 is a great choice.
Magic Trackpad 2
If you prefer using a trackpad, Magic Trackpad 2 gives you the full range of Multi-Touch gestures and introduces Force Touch to the desktop. Sensors underneath the trackpad surface detect subtle differences in the amount of pressure you apply, bringing more functionality to your fingertips and enabling a deeper connection to your content. This new design, along with a lower profile, makes it even more comfortable to use.
