Apple just updated its thinnest, lightest MacBook - here's what's new

Lori Graves | 09 June, 2017, 09:38

New iMac Pro for professionalsFeaturing next-generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, iMac Pro is created to handle the most demanding pro workflows.

There's also a retina 4K display and discrete graphics added to the £1,249 21.5-inch iMac.

Milanesi, who dubbed the iMac Pro "a beast" and graded the Mac line-up as the strongest ever for this time of the year, agreed that the new systems would turn around the negative narrative that had built up since last fall. One of the major introductions was the refreshed MacBook Pro. If you want an Apple laptop that's powerful enough to do heavier work, you'll have to look to the MacBook Pro.

There's also updates to the "standard" iMac range.

All the MacBook Pros and the MacBook are getting new 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.

Apple didn't specify any other changes beyond that. Apple said the Radeon Pro Vega GPU will offer high frame rates in VR, real-time 3D rendering, and video effects production.

Here's our first look at Apple's new HomePod smart speaker
It wouldn't be the first time that Apple hopped on the bandwagon of a technology product popularized by a competitor. Multiple HomePods can be networked together, but that will cost a pretty sum given each speaker costs $349 (£270).

India's prime minister says it would be a "crime" to spoil the environment for future generations as the world awaits a decision on US climate policy.

The latest version of macOS is High Sierra, and it while it doesn't reinvent the wheel, it has a lot of features we're looking forward to. On the other hand, as seen in our testing of previous iterations of the MacBook, the MacBook Pro's Core i5 processor should help it perform faster on our benchmark tests, and in real-life situations. The price for the top-end iMac comes in at a not insignificant £2,799.

Although Apple updated the MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks with seventh-generation Intel processors - the architecture dubbed "Kaby Lake" by the California-based silicon designer and manufacturer - talk during the keynote was limited to the iMac, Apple's all-in-one desktop.

Like the smaller model, the iPad Pro 10.5 comes with an LED-backlit Retina display, though the resolution has increased slightly to 2224 x 1668 pixels in order to offer the same 264ppi pixel density as its predecessor.

This makes it faster than the quickest older 27-inch iMac with Intel Core i7 inside, by a decent margin. 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".

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.

The new 1TB Fusion drive in the 27-inch iMac is snappy, hitting just below 1400 megabyte per second reads and 900MBps writes which is very good.
