Apple announced the iMac M3 on October 30 2023, and it is one of the first machines to gain a new M3 chip (alongside the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops). 

The iMac has been one of best desktop computers for photo editing for some while, not least because it comes with an excellent built-in screen.
