10.5 inch IPad Pro Gets Official, Replaces 9.7 Inch Model

Unusually for Apple, the new iMac Pro won't be available until December.

Fitted with up to 18-core Xeon processors, up to 128GB of memory, and up to 22 Teraflops of graphics computation, this new machine is being pitched as Apple's most powerful Mac ever. The sleek all-in-one gray chassis holds a stunning 27-inch Retina 5K display, and for graphics there's a Radeon Pro Vega 56 (with 8GB memory) on the inside. With the new SSD integration, the new models will be 50% faster than the previous models.

The most exciting thing to come out of WWDC 2017 was the announcement of the new iMac Pro, which is not only the most powerful iMac workstation ever, but the most powerful Mac ever created. While there's no major overhaul happening, all of these make for solid speed upgrades unless you bought a new MacBook Pro a year ago.

Now that the 2017 MacBook Pro is here and the MacBook with Touch Bar is in our daily lives we take an updated look at why you should buy this new model and why you should skip it. Apple notes that the updated API, dubbed Metal 2, is set to run 10 times faster than its predecessor and will additionally support external graphics units. The highlight of the show is that Apple is now using Intel's Kaby Lake processors.

Apple has also been working on the design of the iPad Pro, and there's a reason that the 9.7-inch model is now obsolete.

Although there's plenty going on inside this machine not much has changed on the outside. It's under the sneak peek label, just like the Apple HomePod smart speaker we couldn't touch either.

The device will be powered by an A10X Fusion processor with six-core CPU and 12-Core GPU.

Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro 256GB and 512GB WiFi variants are priced at Rs 73,900 and Rs 89,900 respectively.

Both systems have bright and clear IPS screens, but the 13-inch MacBook Pro has an advantage in screen size, resolution (2,560 by 1,600 versus 2,304 by 1,440), brightness (500 nits versus 300 nits), and DCI-P3 color gamut (the 12-inch MacBook has standard sRGB color).

There are a number of updates in this new version of macOS. The updated MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are all available now.

However, the iMac comes with what's an expensive option for PCs: the great 5K Retina monitor built-in.

Read our thoughts on the Apple iMac 21.5-inch and Apple iMac 27-inch models. Not only did Apple relay that a completely redesigned Mac Pro was on the way, but Phil Schiller made a point of noting that the company was working on iMac configurations developed "specifically with the pro customer in mind".

In both cases, as long as you do processor-intensive work or have noticed slowdown in normal use, these new iMacs are worth diving into.
