One of the most exciting things about Apple's upcoming hardware, announced at last week's Spring Loaded event, is how it pays tribute to the company's past. The colourful new iMac is a clear nod the the bold and bright iMacs of yore – and it seems Apple has another, more subtle nostalgic treat in store for Mac users.

A brand new screensaver has been spotted buried within the new macOS 11.3 update (available today) and it's a delightful throwback to the introduction of the very first Mac – which famously said 'Hello' onstage in 1984. (Check out our best Apple deals if you're in the market for some new kit.)
