Apple launches the iMac Pro

Apple launches the iMac Pro

Apple also claims to have integrated solid-state storage (SSD) that's twice as fast, though only benchmarks will prove that promise. Cellular tablets are priced at $1,219 for 64GB, $1,349 for 256GB or $1,609 for 512GB.

Prices for the 2017 MacBook remain the same as a year ago, with the starting Intel Core m3 configuration coming in at $1,299 (£1,249, AU$1,899). However, the quality of the display is not the only thing that recommends this device.

The new iMacs mostly just feature refreshed and improved hardware specs, bringing Intel's 7th generation "Kaby Lake" processors and updated screen that offer 43% more brightness and up to one billion colours.

Coming along with the new processors is an update to Intel's Iris Pro Graphics 640, which offers better overall performance. But graphics performance is upgraded as well, and is reportedly 40 percent better than its predecessor.

Nor is that power only evident on the inside: the new iPad Pro supports speedy USB-3.0 transfers and fast-charging for its 10-hour battery.

Yes, only just over a year after Apple launched the 9.7in iPad Pro, they've killed it off in favour of a slightly bigger 10.5in model. It carries features like Optical Image Stabilization, quad-LED true tone flash, and 4K video shooting support. It has a 12-megapixel camera and a 7-megapixel FaceTime HD camera.

Apple is releasing a new iPad Pro with brighter retina displays.

Apple devices will support multi-room audio, so you can rock out to music on speakers spread out around your house.

The all new iOS 11 comes preloaded on the new iPad Pros.

But what will most probably immediately draw the user's attention is the new, customizable dock, which is a big improvement over the current implementation, offering quick access to frequently used apps and files from any app.

The updated MacBooks start at $1,299 and are available in silver, gold, space gray, and rose gold. The iPad Pro's "breakthrough performance" is courtesy of the latest 64-bit A10X Fusion chip. Other available variants will include a 256 GB and a 512 GB-equipped units. A MacBook Air refresh isn't a fail-safe bet, but previous reports indicate that Apple's most affordable notebook is getting a new processor as well. Countries like India, Turkey and UAE will be receiving the new iPad Pros later this month followed by Brazil, Mexico and South Korea in July. That goes a long way considering that the iPad Pro 10.5in is almost all screen, after all.

Apple has also taken heed of users' repeated requests for increased graphical processing power with the inclusion of a range of options from Intel Iris Pro Graphics 640 with 64MB of eDRAM to a range of options from Radeon's dedicated GPUs between 555 to the 580 with 4-8GB of RAM depending on your chosen configuration.
