Apple continues is transition to its in-house silicon with an all-new iMac M1. What is arguably the biggest redesign to Apple’s all-in-one desktop in years, the iMac M1 is incredibly thin at 11.5mm and that’s because Apple’s M1 chip uses a smaller logic board, allowing the Cupertino-based brand to shrink the iMac’s depth further.
