After nearly five months of launch, Apple began offering refurbished versions of the 24-inch M1 iMac on the Apple Store. You can save up to $320 by buying a refurbished M1 iMac from Apple. The renewed versions of Apple’s latest M1 desktops are available both across Europe and United States.
Apple has over 12 variants of the M1 iMacs available at the current time. The entry-level 24-inch iMac with 8-core GPU, 7-core GPU, and 256GB SSD is available for $1,099 — $200 less than its original price of $1,299. Similarly, you can save up $320 on the highest-end model that has an 8-core CPU, 8-core GPU, 1TB SSD, and 16GB RAM.
All of the products are available to purchase from the Apple Store.
One advantage of buying a refurbished iMac from Apple is that it comes with the same 1-year warranty as to the new ones. As opposed to the other refurbished Mac selling websites, it comes with all manuals and accessories, including the Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard. Apple says its refurbished devices are subjected to rigorous testing, repair, repackaging, and cleaning process to make them identical to new devices.
Apple’s refurbished stock depends on what people have sent in for repair and replacement. If you’re looking for a specific model (or color) to purchase, you need to keep an eye on the Apple Store as refurbished products tend to sell very quickly.
On the other hand, Amazon is also selling “renewed” iMacs on its website, though it comes at a discount of only $75. If you’re planning on buying refurbished M1 iMac from Amazon, keep in mind that Amazon’s renewed products are refurbished by Amazon and not Apple. They’re eligible for replacement or refund within 90 days from Amazon.
What are your thoughts on Apple’s refurbished products? Do you think they’re as good as the new ones? If you’ve used a refurbished product from Apple, how’s your experience been? Let us know in the comments section below!
macOS Monterey out today, depending on system and region
The anticipated macOS Monterey update is now rolling out to supported Apple devices. The update may take some time to appear on your machine, but rest assured, it’ll show up sooner or later – it may take a few hours until you see it appear in your updates.
How to check if you have macOS Monterey available for your device?
To see whether you already have the update available for download for your device, you can do the following:
- Go to the top left corner and click on the Apple logo
- Click on About this Mac
- Click on Software Update…
- See if you have a new update.
When will macOS Monterey start rolling out?
Apple unveiled the new macOS Monterey update at its WWDC event, and it recently announced that macOS Monterey would be available from October 25, 2021. Apple released the new macOS update to compatible Apple devices at 10 AM PDT, 1 PM EDT.
Availability and Support
macOS Monterey will support the majority of devices that were able to run macOS Big Sur last year. Unfortunately, this also meant that Apple dropped support for a few devices, such as the MacBook Air and iMac devices that were released back in 2013, 2014, and also the 2015 MacBook.
We have collected a list of devices that are compatible and support macOS Monterey:
- iMac: Late 2015 and later
- iMac Pro: 2017 and Later
- MacBook Air: Early 2015 and later
- MacBook Pro: Early 2015 and later
- Mac Pro: Late 2013 and later
- Mac mini: Late 2014 and later
- MacBook: Early 2016 and later
macOS Monterey Features
macOS Monterey comes with a lot of additional features, and there aren’t many redesigned or any visually noticeable changes. We have made a list of most of the features that are coming in the new OS update, and you can find out more about them on our dedicated macOS Monterey page.
As a summary, here are all of the features that will be available in the new software:
- Universal Control
- Focus and other modes coming to Mac from iOS 15
- FaceTime: New video and audio features
- Live Text
- iCloud+: Hide My Email, Mail Privacy Protection
- New Accessibility Features such as alternative image descriptions, Full Keyboard Access, and Cursor Customization.
Apple showed off the Universal Control feature at its WWDC 2021 event. The new feature allows users to seamlessly use Mac and iPad devices as one device, allowing users to use the Mac’s keyboard and mouse to interact, share and use the iPad without any other accessories. Unfortunately, Universal Control will not be available at this time, but Apple confirmed that it’ll be “coming later this fall,” and we may see it enabled on a future version of macOS Monterey.
