Jun 09, 2017, 02:58
In a product-packed WWDC keynote Monday afternoon, Apple announced significant hardware updates to its all-in-one iMac desktop line. "This will be our fastest and most powerful Mac ever, which brings workstation-class computing to iMac for the first time", John Ternus, Apple's vice president of Hardware Engineering said. Pricing starts at $1,100 for the 21.5-inch model and $1,800 for the 27-inch 5K iMacs (same as before). The processing power is enough to help Apple power VR, too, which will be supported in macOS High Sierra, the latest macOS operating system. Apple says that it'll start shipping the new iMac Pro in December. So aside from the difference in color of the upcoming 27-inch iMac and the iMac Pro which was described as being seriously badass space grey finish, what are the things to look forward to on iMac Pro?
