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.
