Apple 10.5 Inch iPad Pro Finally Here, What's New

The Radeon Pro 570 is the base GPU for the new 5K iMac (starting at $1,799), but you can upgrade it to a 575 or 580, and boost the base 8GB of memory and 3.4GHz Core i5 processor to a 4.2GHz Core i7 processor and up to 64GB of memory.

The 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, he enthused.

Fusion Drive hybrid storage is standard on all 27-inch models, and the top 21.5-inch model. With an all-flash architecture and all-new thermal design, iMac Pro delivers up to 80% more cooling capacity in the same thin and seamless iMac design.

The new iPad Pro tablets won't ship till next week, but that hasn't stopped retailers from clamoring for your dollars.

Even the much-neglected MacBook Air range gets a modest speed boost with a faster Intel processor - though the company barely gave it a mention. The new iMac Pro has the same basic chassis as the current iMac range.

Even though the MacBook Pro line got an update late past year, now they've gotten another one - and both standard MacBooks and the much-neglected MacBook Airs are getting a little love, too. So aside from the difference in hues, you'll be carrying a larger, heavier laptop in the MacBook Pro, but neither would be a burden in hand or a commute bag.


Apple 's iPads are about to become multitasking powerhouses much more capable of challenging laptops. Here is everything you need to know about the iPad Pro 10.5. While the new 10.5 version offers a larger screen, it's the same dimensions as the 9.7, thanks to a smaller bezel in the 2017 model. Apple seems to finally be caving in to power users' concerns, with professional types previously shoehorned into getting either the regular 27in 5K iMac or the now four-year-old Mac Pro.

That's the low-end 27-inch iMac, and it costs $2999 including GST.

What the Mac Pro offers - in its current configuration - is customization and after-sale upgrading by the user, something virtually impossible to do with an iMac. He might just be right too, with several high profile changes, such as the introduction of an onscreen dock to the iPad, just like the Mac, making it easier to switch between apps on the fly.

WWDC 2017 may not have been the most exciting keynote we've ever seen, but for any consumers who has been patiently waiting for a solid improvement to the Mac, Monday's keynote was nothing short of encouraging.

It is capable of recording up to 4K video at 30fps and you'll also get all the photo features found on the iPhone 7, including exposure control, auto HDR, body and face detection and Live Photos with stabilisation.
