This will also likely mean the most expensive iPhones yet. How about you, would you spring for a 512GB model?
It’s been over a year since Apple refreshed its iMac lineup with updated hardware and added Thunderbolt 3. After long-term daily use of the computer in that period, now is probably a good time to reflect on the iMac, and how we feel about the machine a year after release.
