Apple iMac M3 2023 Overview

Build and Design

Before the launch of the iMac with M1 in 2021, Apple had been using the same design for its iMacs for years. After bringing a major redesign with its previous iMac, it’s no surprise Apple will stick with this design for a while.

That is to say, the design of the iMac 24-inch M3 retains the same design as its previous model. You can choose from seven different vibrant colors, including blue, green, pink, silver, yellow, orange, and purple. However, the base model is only available in the first four colors. They all come with color-matched braided cables and accessories.

For ports, there are only two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 (up to 40Gbps) ports on the rear and a 3.5mm audio jack on the left side. The upgraded models have two additional USB-C ports (10Gbps) and an Ethernet port integrated into the power adapters.

The standard iMac comes with a Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse combo. You can also configure it with Touch ID, Numeric Keypad, or Magic Trackpad.
