Apple on Tuesday held its first big hardware event of 2021, the highlights of which included the complete redesign of the high-end iMac, making it lighter and featuring seven different colors, and integrating the tech giant's own M1 chip into its iPad Pro.

The new iMac unveiled at the Spring Loaded event is one of the most complete and expensive laptops in the company's product lines and now has an elegant aluminum finish that is available in red, blue, orange, yellow, green, violet and silver and is only 11.5 millimeters (0.45 inch) thick.

The 24-inch screen with 4.5 K resolution - a reduction in total volume of 50 percent compared with earlier models - has been redesigned to provide improved camera resolution of 1080 pixels, including the ability to operate well in reduced luminosity environments.
