WWDC 2017: Apple Inc. (AAPL) Unveils HomePod and a Ton of "Pros"

New MacBook Pro 2017 Range Gets Official

New MacBook Pro 2017 Range Gets Official

Judging by the demos we saw at WWDC, part of the thinking behind these upgrades is to finally get Apple a seat at the table in the realm of virtual reality. That being said, the "magic" premium has never been more apparent than it is here. A 27-inch Retina 5K iMac specced up with 32GB of 2400MHz DDR4 and a 2TB Fusion drive memory costs $4709 for instance.

There's an Apple A8 chip inside the HomePod to handle all the audio processing and privacy protection that Siri is vaunted for. Given its existing relationship with AMD, then, it's not surprising that Apple picked the soon-to-debut Vega GPU.

Apple took considerable heat from its professional users when it released new MacBook Pros past year.

The new-age Pencil was launched at WWDC, and it features 20ms of latency, while Microsoft's new Surface Pen, which also supports a tilt mode, has 21ms of latency. Created to pair with an iPhone and play music via a user's Apple Music subscription, the device will also field queries and control other smart home devices thanks to Siri integration.

Given that this event is aimed squarely at developers, it's only natural that Apple focused on updates to its growing collection of operating systems. macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS will all be getting new capabilities and some of these could be potential game changers. Nevertheless, the French Apple news site Consomac, uncovered regulatory filings for several Mac devices in Russian Federation, which suggest that Apple's new MacBook Pro 2017 could be rolling out soon, QZ reported.

"With major updates to iMac, and a refresh of our MacBook and MacBook Pro lines, the Mac is stronger than ever", John Ternus, Apple's vice president of hardware engineering, said in a statement.

Apple has refreshed the entire lineup with new displays that are at 500 nits 43 percent brighter than the screens found on the current iMacs.

The freshly updated iMac's equipped with Kaby Lake processors will be available immediately, meanwhile, the iMac Pro will be available in December 2017. (NASDAQ:AAPL) announced that it also updated the 13-inch MacBook Air with a 1.8 GHz processor. "That's set to change in December when the iMac Pro launches with a 27" 5K display; 8-, 10-, or 18-core Intel Xeon processors; and Vega graphics. The new models all go on sale today. Starting at $4 999, it's the most expensive and powerful computer Apple has made.

Enclosed in space grey, the new iMac features a 27-inch Retina 5K display, up to 18-core of Intel Xeon processors, and 22 Teraflops of graphics computation.
