From its release in 1998, the Apple iMac caused shockwaves in the tech world, and it continues to do so today with its new 2020 release.
The iMac has gone through seven different distinct designs. You may remember its first form, which was the colourful dome-shaped computer, which would have fitted in with our 90’s décor perfectly and was revolutionary at a time when most other computers were that horrible beige colour. Now you will know the iMac for its distinct, sleek shape. As a result, many tout the iMac as being one of the most formidable contenders in the all-in-one computer market.
You may not know that some credit it as the killing of the floppy disk as it was the first Macintosh computer to feature a USB port. The alluring frame of the iMac we know today packs much punch in specs. Firstly, you don’t need a bulky tower and monitor set-up that seems archaic when you compare it to the iMac. The whole design concept of the iMac is to keep things simple, clean, rational and consistent, therefore maximising any users experience regardless of what they are using it for.
Unfortunately, nothing in electronics works perfectly forever, no matter how good it is, and iMacs are considered to be beyond good. They are rare, but they do happen, and when they do, you need a trusted, certified Apple specialist. At NiwTech Cardiff, we have over 20 years of experience repairing and upgrading all Apple products, and we are certainly not shy to the complexities of an iMac. Keep reading for some common iMac issues and more detailed descriptions.

The failure of the Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) is quite a common issue for the 2009-2011 iMac models. A GPU can become faulty through years of use and dust accumulation, or the fan speed to cool the GPU is too low. You obviously can’t struggle with a streaky or completely black screen for long, and luckily for you, the specialist technicians at NiwTech can replace your GPU in an instant. In addition to this, the replacement of the GPU can give you 2-4 years of iMac life, so don’t think that you need to invest in a brand-new model just yet.
