  • Apple has reduced the price of the Nano-texture glass option for the 27-inch iMac.
  • The feature is now $300 down from $500.
  • It comes as Apple unveiled a brand new 24-inch iMac at its April event.

Apple has quietly cut the price of the Nano-texture glass option on the 27-inch iMac in the wake of announcing the brand new 2021 iMac.

From MacRumors:

During all the announcements and store updates on Tuesday, Apple quietly reduced the price of optional nano-texture glass on its 27-inch iMac models by $200. The nano-texture glass was originally available on the 27-inch ‌iMac‌ as a $500 upgrade option, but Apple is now offering it at $300, as spotted by Twitter user Antares. The nano-texture option on Apple's Pro Display XDR remains a cool $1,000.

As the report notes the nano-texture option on the iMac reduces reflectivity and glare, giving the iMac's screen a matte look and finish.

This is of course a very minor price tweak for a Mac likely on borrowed time. Apple announced a new 24-inch iMac at its April event yesterday:

Apple today introduced an all-new iMac featuring a much more compact and remarkably thin design, enabled by the M1 chip. The new iMac offers powerful performance in a design that's just 11.5 millimeters thin, with a striking side profile that practically disappears. Available in an array of vibrant colors to match a user's personal style and brighten any space, iMac features a 24-inch 4.5K Retina display with 11.3 million pixels, 500 nits of brightness, and over a billion colors, delivering a brilliant and vivid viewing experience.

With the total design overhaul, it is only natural to assume Apple is planning a similar shakeup to its larger iMac, likely to include Apple silicon.
