The first iMac, meanwhile the presentation is 20 years ago, was one of the reasons waru It managed Apple from its former crisis. The colorful and transparent calculator was designed by Jonathan Ive, who still manages Apple's design team. We owe it to him that computers were finally allowed to look happy and not have to be gray and drab. Not without reason, Ive set a signal for the entire computer market. Colorful and transparent was suddenly chic.
Currently the trend has developed in the other direction again. Apple offers as a color variant for various MacBooks maximum matte gold or rose gold variants, the iMac is only available in silver or space gray. Really colorful is no device from Apple anymore. As Bloomberg and Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI now report, that could change soon.
Apple plans colorful special edition
Apple would like to celebrate the twenty-year anniversary of the iMac this year with a special edition. So it should give the current iMac generation with its aluminum housing for a short time in the classic colors of the first iMac plastic housing. So in blue, red, green, purple and orange. However, the colors should be a bit more subtle than the original and are more oriented to the golden variants of the MacBook.
When exactly the colored models will be available is still unknown. Apple may present it at the WWDC Developer Conference in June.
