Apple gives a sneak peek at its upcoming iMac Pro

Apple gives a sneak peek at its upcoming iMac Pro

As a developers conference, it's no surprise that Apple's WWDC keynote today - not to mention its scheduled programs for the rest of the week - will primarily focus on software.

To give its Mac OS powered desktop a premium appeal, Apple has slightly tinkered with the characteristic design of the iMac range. The iMacs will now be fitted with Intel's 7th-gen Kaby Lake processors and can be specced with more memory than ever before: up to 32GB on the 21.5-inch display models and up to 64GB of memory on the 27-inch models. They will support up to one billion colors.

Perhaps unexpectedly, the next most exciting unit on display was the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, running iOS 11.

From what it looks like, Apple is trying its best with the MacBook Pro, so they are insisting on this product for the moment. A MacBook Air refresh isn't a fail-safe bet, but previous reports indicate that Apple's most affordable notebook is getting a new processor as well. It can facilitate Kaby Lake processors up to 3.5 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.0 GHz for the 13-inch model. "Radeon Pro 500 Series graphics are enabling new generations of makers with compute-accelerated creative tools and new APIs, bringing their imaginations to life in ways like never before".

Available at the end of the year, Apple is also including four Thunderbolt 3 ports and a 10GB ethernet connection on the back of the iMac Pro, allowing professionals to connect both external storage drives, as well as external graphics cards as needed. While Apple introduced a thinner, lighter MacBook Pro past year, people still want a new MacBook Air. Under the hood is an all-new centrifugal cooling system with two fans to draw heat away from the system's Xeon processor, which you can configure with eight, 10, or 18 cores.

As someone who has a thing for workstations - whether from Apple, Dell, HP - I can say I am thoroughly impressed with the iMac Pro. All of the new models are available now.

Now, Apple thinks consumers who'll purchase the said desktop all-in-one computer will require enormous power.
