Apple announced an insane new iMac with a totally new design and the M1 chip at its April Apple event stating:

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.

The new iMac has new peripherals, an updated FaceTime HD camera, improved speakers, and more.

It will be available in 7 colors, and the price starts at $1,299 for the 7-core GPU and $1,499 for the 8-core GPU version, which is also available in more colors. It also has a bunch of ports for connectivity:

Every iMac features two Thunderbolt ports for superfast data transfers, giving customers high-performance options to connect to more devices, including support for up to a 6K display, like Apple Pro Display XDR, and Wi-Fi 6 delivers faster wireless performance. The 8-core iMac configuration offers two additional USB-C ports and also features a 1Gbps Ethernet port in the power adapter, allowing for a less cluttered desktop.

  • Ergotron provides further information stating that Apple is using a 100mm x 100mm mounting hole pattern (https://www.ergotron.com/en-us/tools/mount-finder?manufacturerid=949&mod...). This indicates Apple has selected the VESA FDMI MIS-D standard with four M4 x 10mm screws, but I can't find anything on Apple's own tech spec or support pages to confirm this. I do wish that Apple had made the minor aesthetic concession of designing their colour-matched iMac stand to connect to the main body via VESA MIS-D mounting holes, so that buyers could purchase the standard iMac with the included stand and then have the flexibility throughout the computer's lifetime of switching to a VESA display arm.
