iMac 27 Inch Display
This generation 27-inch features True Tone for the first time, allows the ambient light sensor on the iMac’s front to detect the subtle lighting changes within the room, and enhances the end-user display. True Tone has been a part of Apple’s Macs for years now, but this is the first time it’s been included with an iMac display.
The feature adjusts both the color and the display’s intensity to harmonize the room’s lighting, allowing for a more paper-like viewing event that cuts down on eyestrain.
For an additional $500, the 27-inch iMac models can be customized with a nano-texture glass option, which was first offered for the Pro Display XDR. Nano-texture glass is intended to offer more exceptional viewing under lighting conditions like a bright room or direct sunlight, chopping down on glare.
It offers a matte finish, but unlike traditional matte finishes that use a coating outside to diffuse light, the nano-texture glass emphasizes etching on the nanometer level, hence the name.
Apple states that nano-texture glass is intended to produce extremely low reflectivity and glare while still allowing astronomical image quality and contrast.
