Apple released an update to the graphics in its latest iMacs yesterday , due to a problem with large JPEG files, which cause some iMacs to crash after opening or viewing them. We’ll tell you more.
Update fixes problems with JPEG files
This issue appears to be affecting the newest iMacs, the late 2014 27-inch iMac Retina 5k, the 21-inch iMac, and the late 2013 27-inch iMac. It appears that when you attempt to open a large JPEG file, some iMacs lock up , as detailed by Apple in the upgrade description.
“If you’re using OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 with one of the listed iMacs, viewing certain very large JPEG images in Finder or previewing them may cause your iMac to lock up or not respond, even displaying a black screen. Giving a message that the computer must be restarted due to a problem.
If you are one of the users affected by this issue, it is best to perform this update, which corrects this error, as reported by Apple itself.
Apple may launch an 8K-resolution iMac this year
We already know that Apple lets virtually no rumor escape from its new products, before they go on sale or are announced by them. But a few days ago we learned from LG, that Apple would be thinking of launching an iMac with 8K resolution or what is the same 7680×4320 pixels.
We were totally surprised by this announcement, mostly because it didn’t come from Apple itself. Although it seems that LG could have been wrong in some terms and what Cupertino is really preparing is a TV with that 8K resolution and not a new iMac, the rumors about an Apple TV come from far away now.
Last October, Apple introduced its new iMac with a Retina or 5K display, which is quite a surprising resolution and more so because it’s 4K monitors that are starting to stand out today. So an 8K-resolution iMac wouldn’t seem like such a crazy idea either.
But undoubtedly what stands out the most about the iMac line is its design , avant-garde and a simplicity that stands out from other desktops. Without going too far we can highlight the design of the iMac 5K, which has a minimalist design of extreme thinness, but without losing the power of its hardware.
If you’re an iMac owner listed at the beginning of this article and you’re having trouble with large JPEG files, don’t hesitate to update your iMac graphics with the new MacRumors update.
