Apple just updated the iMac - here's what's new

By far the more interesting Mac-related announcement from today's keynote is the new iMac Pro. The Mac Pro line has always been neglected by Apple, despite calls from enthusiasts for a significant refresh.

Apple stated that thermal issues were one of the core reasons that it was not able to move forward, but with that problem out of the way, it looks like all of you are graced with the iMac Pro. "This will be our fastest and most powerful Mac ever, which brings workstation-class computing to iMac for the first time", said John Ternus. They have higher memory capacities, faster storage, and Thunderbolt 3 capacity. It comes amid heated competition from Microsoft, which recently released iMac and MacBook rivals in the form of the Surface Studio and Surface Laptop, respectively. With a whopping US$4,999 price tag, Apple aims to deliver a premium performance with the device. Especially given that the iMac Pro's also rocking a 27in 5K display.

Remember the time when critics thought that Apple had killed the Mac Pro?

Questions surface over how British police overlooked London attackers
People across Wales have gathered to observe a minute's silence to remember the victims of the London terror attack. Much of the area around London Bridge remained cordoned off as commuters struggled to work in the driving rain.

The full line is moving to Intel's 7th gen Core processor, Kaby Lake, and will also include a memory boost. Fusion Drive is now standard on all 27-inch models as well as the 21.5-inch iMac. The laptop will likely get new processors and may support up to 32GB of RAM, but the design will remain largely unchanged.

The Pro seems to be designed specifically with virtual reality (VR) and heavy graphics rendering workloads in mind, much of which will be powered by the new Radeon Pro Vega GPU. The MacBooks are likewise getting an upgrade to Kaby Lake, and will also get new SSDs that are 50 percent faster than the previous generation, the company said. The best part about it is that they have a bigger cache memory than the U series, which are dual-core.

These laptops weigh 2lbs and are 13.1mm thin. This will not only make the most of the GPUs Macs ship with, a $600 developer kit including an AMD Radeon RX580, external GPU chassis and USB-C port is to be made available to support using Metal and Thunderbolt to integrate external GPUs.
