WWDC 2017: Apple Updates iMacs, MacBook Pros, And Sneaks iMac Pro




Not only did Apple offer an update for macOS, but also has new Mac hardware. Apple is updating their iMac line with new displays that are 43% brighter than before with 1 billion colors. All iMacs are gaining the new Intel “Kaby Lake” processors with up to 32GB RAM on the 21.5″ and up to 64GB on the 27″. For graphics, there’s now stand alone graphics chips on all iMac models besides the baseline (which features the Iris Plus 640 integrated graphics). The 4K 21.5″ iMac includes Radeon Pro 555 & 560, and the 27″ has options of the Radeon Pro 570, 575 and 580 GPUs. The iMac starts at $1,099 for the 21.5″ baseline, $1,299 4K, and $1799 for the 27″.

The MacBook Pro line was also updated with Kaby Lake processors across the board as well as faster storage. The prices remain the same outside of the standard 13″ MacBook Pro without touch bar is dropping from $1499 to $1299. All of these items will start shipping today.

Apple also offered a sneak peek of the new iMac Pro. It’s the same design as the 27″, except it comes in Space Gray. On the inside, there’s an all new fan system to keep it quiet with the new powerful internals. Speaking of which, you will have configuration choices for an 8 core, 10 core, or 18 core Xeon processor. The iMac Pro includes up to 16GB of VRAM, with up to 22 teraflops “half precision”, up to 128GB ECC memory, and up to 4TB of 3GB/s SSD storage. The iMac Pro will start at $4999, and will be available in December.
