Apple unveils 'the most powerful Mac we have ever made'

WWDC 2017 is underway and, as expected, Apple has already made a number of exciting announcements. The iMac Pro, that features a 27-inch Retina 5K display, up to 18-core Xeon processors and up to 22 Teraflops of graphics computation ability, is Apple's most powerful Mac ever, according to the Cupertino major.

The new Apple iMac Pro will start at a price of $4,999 in the United States and will be available in December.

In a press release on its website, Apple said that, in addition to the iMac Pro, it's still working on "a completely redesigned, next-generation Mac Pro architected for pro customers who need the highest-end, high-throughput system in a modular design, as well as a new high-end pro display".

Featuring next-generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, iMac Pro is created to handle the most demanding pro workflows.

Yahoo, AOL Staff Reportedly Set To Get 2100 Pieces Of Bad News
Telecom giant Verizon will reportedly announce plans next week to cut as many as 2,100 jobs at their AOL and Yahoo subsidiaries. Verizon dropped its initial valuation of the company by $350 million after Yahoo suffered massive data breaches .

The Mac Pro is an all-in-one product just like the iMacs but includes more I/O options, including four Thunderbolt 3 ports, and comes in a stealth-like dark silver color. It features AMD's Radeon Pro Vega GPU, the most advanced to ever be used in a Mac. Ternus claimed that the new system is up to 3 times faster than the previous generation in terms of graphics, while the 27-inch will be 50 percent faster.

The starting price for the new iMacs ranges from $1,099 to $1,799 and they're available for order today at Apple's website. The newly updated MacBook Air laptop will serve you with more additional ports such as full-size USB and an SD card slot that is today's requirement.

Nearly lost in the landslide of product announcements at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote was the reveal the MacBook Pro received an important update: The new laptops have the same design as the previous version, but the laptops feature new processors that should provide a speed boost. Photos has as a ton of new editing tools, which, for most of us, mean it can be our only photo editing app - even though it will also be able to sync your edits with Photoshop and Pixelmator for power users. The ECC RAM goes up to 128 gigabytes and SSD can be upgraded to 4 TB.
