Surprise M1 iMac design flaw spotted – is yours affected?

We were blown away by the design of the new 2021 iMac when Apple revealed it back in April. The colourful aesthetic is a delightful throwback to the company’s quirky desktops of yore, but with a sleek and contemporary profile. But a potential manufacturing error has some iMac owners less than impressed.

It seems some 2021 iMacs have been shipping with a slightly crooked mount, meaning the display is not perfectly aligned. ‘Not perfectly designed’ is, of course, very un-Apple – and a tilted screen isn’t what we expect from one of the best computers for graphic design.

In his video review of the M1 iMac (below), YouTuber iPhonedo reveals that his display arrived slightly tilted to one side, a disparity he was able to confirm using a ruler. And iPhonedo isn’t alone – users have also taken to both Reddit (below) and even Apple’s own support forums to complain of slightly wonky displays (cue endless ‘Tim Crooked’ jokes).
