Apple announces new Kaby Lake iMacs

Apple announces new Kaby Lake iMacs

Apple began accepting orders for the new iPad Pros on Monday, June 5 soon after the tablets were announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

The Cupertino-based giant announced that the new iMac will sport the "best Mac display ever" which is 43 percent brighter at 500 nits and with support for one billion colours. Not only will Apple's revamped MacBook Pro come equipped with speedier Kaby Lake processors from Intel, but rumor has it that the refresh will support 32GB of RAM. The iMac is fine and dandy, but still, we were certainly getting bored of seeing the same thing as always within Apple's laptop and PC line.

To recap, Apple announced the new MacBook Pros back in October past year.

Labour wins Newcastle in United Kingdom vote
The UK now has a hung parliament, with Labour having gained seats while the Tory's have lost their overall majority. Houghton and Sunderland South - a different constituency that's nearby - came in second place, nine minutes later.


Apple said the iMac Pro is scheduled to begin shipping in December, with prices starting at US$4,999 ($6,675). Or if you want four, you'll need to get the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, or the larger 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) said that its MacBook and MacBook Pro lineup will get faster Kaby Lake processors.

Apple showed off the line: 21.5-inch iMacs start at $1,099 (roughly converting to £850 and AU$1,470). Available in the updated 21.5- and 27-inch iMac, Radeon Pro 500 series graphics enable extraordinary computing experiences, including stunning gaming, immersive VR on select models*, and fluid content creation with exceptional performance and support for GPU acceleration across a range of creative applications on the Mac platform, such as Adobe Premiere® Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop® and the Foundry Nuke, Mari and Modo. We had little to no hope left that Apple would ever pick up some slack and make the iMac great again, but they sure proved everyone wrong.

Saudi's ignore minute's silence for Australians killed in terrorist attacks
Anthony Albanese, a front bench spokesman for the opposition Labor Party, said the incident was "bloody disgraceful". Two Australians, Kirsty Boden and Sara Zelenak , were among the eight victims of the terror attack.


The new 21.5-inch iMac Retina 4K will come with AMD Radeon Pro 555 and Radeon Pro 560 graphics.

The Pro seems to be designed specifically with virtual reality (VR) and heavy graphics rendering workloads in mind, much of which will be powered by the new Radeon Pro Vega GPU. Those dabbling in Machine Learning can take advantage of the Vega GPU's 22 Teraflops of half-precision computation power. From iOS 11 to new updates involving macOS, watchOS, and tvOS, Apple's event today will have a decidedly software bent. Add 802.11ac Wi-Fi to the mix alongside a decent fibre internet connection and you're guaranteed rapid-fire download and upload speeds. The prices remain largely the same across the board, aside from a newly-cheaper 13-inch MacBook Pro for $1,299.
