Apple announces new Kaby Lake iMacs”

The biggest crowd was gathered around the HomePod table.

Supports Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil. Nothing to get too excited about, but Apple has been inconsistent with keeping up with the industry, so this is a good step. Place the HomePod on a centre table and the speaker will emit the best 360 sound for the space. Some of the variants not only received beefed up internals but even secured a price cut in an attempt to lure more users towards its integrated desktop computer devices. But what should we expect at the WWDC event that will take place on June 5?

With faster hardware comes the requirement for an improved cooling service.

Apple hasn't given up on its most serious Mac customers. That means it should feel a bit clickier and more responsive than before.

This particular model will most likely come together with a 7 gen Core Kaby Lake-U processor made by Intel.

Thinner, faster and new touchbar replaces function keys.

The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro starts at Rs. 52,900 for the 64GB Wi-Fi model, Rs. 60,900 for 256GB, and Rs. 76,900 for the 512GB model.

The updates are definitely welcome, especially on the MacBook Pro front, so if you've been waiting to snag a new Mac for months, now might be the time.

The desktop gets some serious processing power thanks to a variety of Intel Xeon processors, with options ranging from 8 cores up to 18-cores.

The most noticeable improvement is the 27-inch iMac's screen. The iMacs in the Retina type will now be available at price points of Rs.1,48,900, Rs.1,65,900 and Rs. 1,89,900 respectively.

The iMac Pro will be available in December. Apple said both are appearing at WWDC as "sneak peaks", and they weren't lying.

Apple is making a push into VR with updates to macOS and new graphics chips in its iMacs. The entry level 21.5-inch model will have an Intel Iris Plus 640 GPU, while the 4K 21.5-inch models will get Radeon Pro 555 and 560 graphics cards.

It's exciting to see Apple supporting external GPUs in their MacBook Pro line. The Radeon Pro 500 series makes use of the critically-acclaimed "Polaris" GPU architecture, delivering the flawless balance of performance and operating efficiency that makes them ideal for All-In-Ones."It is incredibly satisfying to see the capabilities of Radeon Pro 500 series in elegant form factors and enabling incredible content creation, gaming and VR experiences", said Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD.

Augmented Reality (AR) in the form of ARKit will be supported.
