[summary]A2116 / 2019 / 3.6 GHz quad-core i3, 3.0 GHz 6-core i5, or 3.2 GHz 6-core i7 processor. Released March 19, 2019.[/summary]
The 21.5" iMac with Retina 4K display was released on March 19, 2019, refreshing the iMac line after nearly two years. It can be identified by its model number A2116, which is located beneath the single foot.
+In a highly unusual move, Apple published the complete service manual for this model on its support site (also linked above), making it freely available to the public. This automatically nets one full additional point for this model on iFixit’s repairability scale.

While it remains visually identical to the previous generation, the 2019 iMac offers upgraded 8th generation processors, up to 32 GB DDR4 memory, and up to 1TB SSD storage.
