“On Tuesday, Apple updated its line of iMacs with some nice-to-have display and input technologies that you won’t find on other consumer desktops,” Geoffrey A. Fowler reports for The Wall Street Journal. “Apple is adding ultra-high resolution 4K Retina screens to its 21.5-inch iMacs, and making 5K resolution standard on larger 27-inch iMacs. Those displays also now show a 25% greater range of colors, making photos look more detailed and eye-poppingly vibrant.”
“Larger iMacs are also getting boosted graphics capabilities and a new faster kind of Intel processor called Skylake,” Fowler reports. “And for the first time since 2010, Apple redesigned its Magic line of keyboards, mice and trackpads to do a few more tricks, like recharging with the same cord used by the iPhone.”
“The iMac’s new input devices solve a headache with past Apple mice, keyboards and trackpads: having to constantly throw out their batteries. The new models contain sealed rechargeable batteries that you juice up using the same Lightning plug as an iPhone,” Fowler reports. “Apple reports all three can go for about month on a single charge, and the mouse can give you a nine-hour day’s worth of pointing and clicking with a two-minute charge.”
