Earlier this year, Apple welcomed a redesigned, much more colorful iMac to the lineup. With its 24-inch display, an the M1 processor under the hood, it certainly stands out as a great new desktop option. However, availability is still not great, and some color options aren't available in Apple's physical retail stores at all.
Not too long ago, I asked how your desk has changed since the start of all this work-from-home fervor started. With so many day-to-day routines changing, it only made sense that some folks' workstations --whether temporary or permanent-- had changed over the last year or so.
It's been a few months since Apple launched the brand new, much more colorful 24-inch iMac. And for folks who have been waiting until refurbished models start popping up on the market to make a purchase, the wait is over. Mostly. Stock isn't quite as robust as one might like, but for folks in the United Kingdom there's at least one option ready to buy now.
It feels like forever ago now, but I once had a desktop. Something I'd use every single day by saddling up to a desk and typing away on a wired, less-than-great keyboard. A mouse and not a trackpad. Part of those years was as a kid, either with an early day Mac or early day PC, and most of that time was spent playing old computer games.
Over the last year and some change, what going to work looks like has changed quite a bit for a lot of people. What used to be a daily grind with traffic and public transport, or parking, or whatever else it might've been, now relies more on stable WiFi and kids not barging in on us during a Zoom call. But, what about our desks?
While there are still some major issues hindering businesses all over the world, Apple continues to march ahead. Not so surprisingly, the company had yet another strong quarter over the middle of 2021. And today the company's revealing how well things went over the course of the last three months.
A flagship Apple silicon iMac with the Apple M2 chip is now rumored to launch in 2022 to avoid cannibalizing Mac refreshes around the M1X chip expected before the end of 2021.
Last year, Apple updated its support document regarding cleaning the company's products. At the time it was a pretty big change, letting device owners know they could clean their iPhone(s) with disinfecting wipes. But, as noted in a newly updated document, there's another important bit to be aware of.
A new Apple silicon iMac to replace the 27-inch Intel-based models is coming later in 2021, powered by the next-generation Apple M2 chip, according to a reliable Bloomberg reporter.
Alongside the new iMac 24-inch announcement in April this year, Apple also unveiled a new 'Hello' screensaver in macOS Big Sur. The new screensaver showed off the new colors of the M1 iMac lineup. In the screensaver, the greeting 'hello' appears in bright animation and different languages. The iMac 24-inch features an all new design, and is available in seven colours.
The Hello screensaver wasn't available to all macOS Big Sur users, unless you purchased the new 24-inch iMac. If you have one of those, then you could enable the screensaver from the Display options in Settings. However, Apple did include the screensaver in macOS Big Sur, but did not enable it. In this post, you will learn how to install the Hello screensaver on your Mac.
Apple's ecosystem isn't just about one device. It's about finding the right way to work across all the different Apple-branded products on your desk. And with two new features coming soon to macOS 12 Monterey (and, technically, iPadOS 15), it's getting a bit easier.
Earlier today, Apple officially unveiled the next major software updates for its platforms at this year's WWDC. It shouldn't surprise anyone that a large range of Apple's devices support updating to the upcoming updates. So you can find a list below of the supported devices that will be updated later this year.
