Ben Lovejoy. The Late iMac — both This means that it will still be possible to have your machine repaired through an Apple Store provided that parts are still available. The pilot repair program was introduced in November of last year, and was initially applied to the iPhone 5 and mid MacBook Air. It was also extended to the mid iMac in the US and Turkey.
For example, in EU countries, warranty repairs must be offered for a minimum of two years after purchase, and for up to seven years, depending on the product. An expensive appliance would be expected to last seven years, while a cheap phone would only be expected to last two. Check out 9to5Mac on YouTube for more Apple news:.

Thank you. What are all the differences between the "Late " Aluminum iMac models and the "Late " models that they replaced? Please note that the "Late " and "Late " iMac models have been discontinued. With even a detailed external inspection of the Aluminum iMac models, it is practically impossible to visually differentiate between the "Late " and "Late " lines.
However, this does not mean that there are not important differences between the "Late " models -- the iMac "Core i5" 2. In fact, there are important technical differences, it is just that they are internal. Because the external appearance is so similar, identification differences are particularly critical, too.
Consequently, a detailed comparison between the lines can be quite useful. Photo Credit: Apple, Inc. For all practical purposes, the "Late " and "Late " iMac lines use the same case. Both use the same all aluminum design that sharply tapers to a 5 mm edge at the sides of the display. Both lines use the exact same "anti-reflective" 8-bit LED-backlit TFT Active Matrix LCDs with IPS In-Plane Switching technology and degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles. Both also have the same glass cover that is fully laminated to the LCD itself.
This lamination means that reflections are reduced, but it also means that the display and the glass only can be replaced as a single piece, which is more complicated and costly to replace than systems that have a separate display and external glass cover. Both lines additionally have an integrated p "FaceTime HD" webcam embedded in the upper display bezel, speakers integrated at the bottom edge of the display, and dual integrated microphones.
If one of these iMac models was configured for wall mounting, it did not ship with the traditional stand, and it cannot subsequently be reconfigured for desk use. By default, both lines shipped with a notebook size aluminum wireless keyboard without a numeric keypad and the choice of either the wireless "Magic Mouse" which has the entire top as "a seamless multi-touch surface" that allows one to "navigate using intuitive finger gestures" or the "Magic Trackpad" which provides multi-touch input like on a recent Apple notebookbut for the "Late " line Apple also offered the option of a traditional wired Apple mouse.
There is one important connectivity difference between the "Late " and "Late " iMac lines. All of these systems have an SDXC-capable SD card slot, four USB 3. However, the "Late " iMac systems also support The "Late " and "Late " iMac lines share Model Numbers. Specifically, the The model numbers are not precise enough to uniquely identify specific models. Consequently, other identifiers are better for more precision. Just as the site has for other models for many years, EveryMac.
Externally, the EMC Number is best as it is less likely to be shared by future models using the same case type. The For the "Late " line, the Iris-equipped iMac "Core i5" 2. All Inch "Late " iMac models share EMC number In software, the Finally, EveryMac. Internally, the "Late " and "Late " iMac lines have significant processor, graphics processor, architecture, and upgrade-related differences.
In fact, just about the only internal attribute that the two lines share is that they both use pin MHz PC DDR3 SDRAM SO-DIMMs. In both lines, the Officially, Apple does not intend for one to upgrade the RAM in the The Inch models, by contrast, have a "pop off" door on the back that makes upgrading the RAM quick and easy. Both lines have Quad Core processors, but the "Late " models use "3rd Gen" Intel processors and the "Ivy Bridge" architecture whereas the "Late " models use faster "4th Gen" Intel processors and the "Haswell" architecture.
Among other performance-related improvements, the "Haswell" architecture uses a directly attached "On Package Interface" OPI instead of the earlier and slower "Direct Media Interface" DMI to connect between the processor and chipset. Graphics processors are different between the lines, also, with the "Late " line generally providing faster graphics performance.
In terms of internal upgrades other than the RAM, as first discovered courtesy of teardowns from iFixit and othersthere are some disappointments with both lines. For storage upgrades, if the However, the Inch "Late " and all "Late " iMac models do have this connector on the motherboard even without a pre-installed SSD, so it is possible to add a PCIe-based "blade" SSD after the purchase of the system. For processor upgrades, the situation is partially reversed and the processors in the "Late " models -- regardless of display size -- as well as the Inch "Late " models are mounted on processor socketswhich makes processor upgrades feasible.
The major differences between the Please refer to the specs page for the model of interest for complete details. Ultimately, the "Late " iMac models are a modest update compared to the "Late " iMac models replaced, but the improved performancefaster Wi-Fi, the option of faster storage and the improved storage upgrade possibilities are likely to be welcomed by most users. However, for those interested in saving a bit of money, the "Late " iMac models remain well worth consideration, particularly given discount prices on the used market.
There are no shortage of places to purchase a used "Late " or "Late " iMac. However, purchasing from a quality vendor with extensive experience in the Mac market -- and after sales support -- is the best option and will save you money and time, too.
