Apple's new iMacs get a big horsepower boost

Apple's John Ternus speaks during an announcement of new products at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose Calif. Monday

Supports Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.

A cynical view would be that this was to justify a high price tag but, after listening to the speaker in action, the comparison seems justified.

Graphics is an area that Apple has really stepped things up, though. Place the HomePod on a centre table and the speaker will emit the best 360 sound for the space. The comparison to the Echo was even more stark, with Amazon's speaker sounding about as good as audio leaking from a nearby commuter's headphones. But what should we expect at the WWDC event that will take place on June 5? The new thermal design will also allow for up to 80 percent more cooling capacity while up to 4 terabytes of SSD storage keeps the machine running smoothly and quietly.

Will run iOS 11, which has new features like a file browser for file searching, an improved bottom doc, other improved windowing and multi-tasking features.

Thinner, faster and new touchbar replaces function keys.

But he has not yet missed a putt from inside 10 feet, a feat he credits to recent work with a putting training device. Rickie Fowler was among them, salvaging a two-under 70 after a poor start with a triple-bogey seven at the second.

New iMacs will start shipping Monday.

The list of products for which the prices have been announced includes the newly launched 10.5inch iPad Pro models, apart from the MacBook range and the iMac. "Radeon Pro 500 Series graphics are enabling new generations of makers with compute-accelerated creative tools and new APIs, bringing their imaginations to life in ways like never before."*Available on the Radeon™ Pro 580.

The 13-inch MacBook Air also got a faster processor in a rare update.

The screen's the same bright and vivid 12-inch Retina display with 2,304 x 1,440 resolution. The refreshed iMacs will be available for purchase in Apple Store. The iMac Pro will boast a built-in 10GB Ethernet port and four Thunderbolt 3 ports.

After unveiling the refreshed iMac desktops and MacBook Pro, AMD's Senior Vice President and Chief Architect disclosed the benchmark to the public. Apple said both are appearing at WWDC as "sneak peaks", and they weren't lying.

Just if you go through problems physically and you keep going to work and push your limits every time, I think is fantastic. Kerber was defeated in the first round by unseeded Kiki Bertens 12 months ago and has yet to get past the quarterfinal.

Banks of iMacs and MacBook Pros were connected to HTC Vive VR headsets, a first for Apple computers.

The MacBook Pro 2017 model is nearly certainly going to be shown, but fans who are looking forward to an external overhaul shouldn't get their hopes up as Apple is likely just going to upgrade the machine's internal modules. One possible explanation would be the fact that it's not that easy to make the transition from one generation to another when it comes to the CPU, and the process wouldn't be smooth or stable.

The processor have had a bit of a boost too.

Augmented Reality (AR) in the form of ARKit will be supported.
