To go along with the release of its new iMac and accessories, Apple has given unprecedented access to its Input Design Lab to journalist Steven Levy, who was able to interview members of Apple's iMac and accessory team, along with SVP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller. The interviews touched on many details, including getting the sound right on the new Magic Mouse 2.
Senior Mac hardware director Tom Boger talked about the color technology in the displays of the new iMacs:
In building its new displays, Apple explored, but ultimately passed on quantum dot technology because it required a toxic element, cadmium. They instead found a custom LED solution.
Apple's VP for Ecosystem Products and Technologies, Kate Bergeron, also talked about redesigning the Magic Keyboard, the new model of which is smaller, but with bigger keys.

I'm curious as to if they experimented with OLED or AMOLED displays. I would be curious to see how Apple would readjust and optimize in order to get the blacker blacks or whatever magical term Apple would use.
