That’s because every iMac display is individually colour-calibrated using state-of-the-art spectroradiometers to match colour standards recognised around the world.

Was this always the case with iMacs, or is this a new feature, as a photographer if this is a new edition over the 2011, its alot more useful to me than most the upgrades and will bring the screen closer to a dedicated calibrated screen.

Still not sure about 2011 maxed out or 2012, disgusted an SSD is not standard in top end 27", fusion drive should of been 128gb minimum spec for the 27" with 256, 512 uprades, not stuck with a 1tb HDD....

Great for the first 4 weeks but as every pro photographer will tell you, it will need calibrating every few weeks. Plus are the lighting conditions the same as where you will be using it? I doubt it. You will still need to buy a calibration device like ColorMunki or Spyder.

yes, fully aware of that but if they are calibrating it, does it mean they will include calibrating software/make a tool for it?

It will be calibrated with an external tool linked to software. In Europe NEC test the PA IPS panels in a similar way. The top 5% (for conformatu) get made into Spectraviews. It will be done in a similar way.
Just read your quote again! No it won't come with a calibrator. Buy an Eizo CG275 for that!
