Apple on Tuesday updated its iMac line-up with two new devices after a gap of nearly two years that come with up to 8-core Intel 9th-generation processors for the first time and powerful Vega graphics options.

The new 21.5-inch iMac with Retina 4K display starts at Rs 119,900 and the 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display will cost Rs 169,900.

Both the devices are available starting next week, through Apple Authorised Resellers, the company said in a statement.

“With its stunning Retina display, amazing design, twice the performance, and macOS Mojave that our customers love, iMac is by far the best desktop in the world,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s Senior Director of Mac Product Marketing.

It’s been nearly two years since Apple last updated the regular iMac models.

With updated processors this time, customers will experience dramatically faster performance for a wide range of everyday computing tasks, said the company.

The 21.5-inch iMac now features 8th-generation quad-core and for the first time 6-core processors — delivering up to 60 per cent faster performance.
