Apple unveils 'HomePod' speaker, first new product in years

At its WWDC conference this year, Apple announced a slew of new and exciting products, along with updates to its popular iMac and MacBook lineup. The new Retina display is also much brighter at 600 nits, utilizes the p3 color gamut, and supports a faster refresh rate at 120Hz.

The Apple iMac Pro 2017 features a handsome 27-inch large 5K display. Apple's press release consists of just one line that states that the fact that the company updated the 13-inch MacBook Air with a 1.8GHz processor. This 21.5-inch iMac also has the option of Radeon Pro 555 with 2GB of video RAM for graphics or a Radeon Pro 560 with 4GB of video RAM.

As for connectivity and storage, the iMac Pro comes with up to 4TB of SSD storage and four Thunderbolt 3 ports.


The 21.5-inch iMac will start at $1,100 and the 4K 21.5-inch model will be available at $1,300. Apple has announced that the new iMac will be available to order starting Monday via apple.com, and will be available to buy in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday.

The iMac Pro is scheduled to ship in December starting at $4,999 in the US. This display will be powered by AMD Vega graphics cards that will be able to provide up to 22 Teraflops of computing performance. This is the most powerful machine ever built by Apple. Since the new models launched a year ago, buyers have been clamouring for more RAM, and a report from Bloomberg in mid-May suggested that's exactly what we would be getting.

Due to go on sale in December, Apple says the iMac Pro has "the most advanced graphics ever in a Mac".


Featuring next-generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, iMac Pro is created to handle the most demanding pro workflows. The company takes pride in iMac Pro as it is entirely made of high-end and ground-breaking components-from the display down to the processor.

On the outside the iMac Pro resembles its less gutsy brethren but features Apple Space Grey colour scheme rather than the silvery white associated with iMacs.

The music community will be also happy to know that the new iMac Pro also comes with a good selection of connection options, unlike the recent MacBook Pro upgrade, which dropped all of the legacy connectors.


With incredibly thin and seamless enclosures, stunning displays and fast processors and storage, iMac sets the gold standard for desktops.
