Just Yesterday, Apple launched the new iPad Air and iPad mini with support for Apple Pencil. Now, the Cupertino giant has refreshed two iMac models, including a 21.5-inch with Retina display, and a 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display. Apple has updated the devices with more powerful Intel processors and AMD graphics. However, the company hasn’t refreshed its entry-level iMac, which comes without a Retina display.
