Apple launch new iMac Pro and iPad Pro models

Outside of technology companies, Coca-Cola is one of the big spenders with a budget three times that of Apple.

Bass was deeper, and vocals more distinct from the rest of the mix.

With Pro Motion, Apple Pencil is even more responsive with an industry-best, 20-millisecond latency for even more fluid and natural drawing.

The HomePod is due to be released in Australia in December, with the price to be announced soon (expect around $500 based on U.S. pricing).

Along with upgrading the processors, Apple has also upgraded the MacBook Pro's graphic hardware.

The new iPad Pro are as powerful as the MacBook Pro 15 inches of 2016.

A higher refresh rate of 120Hz means scrolling on the iPad Pro's screen seems considerably more fluid, with much smoother content motion.

The Apple iPad Pro 10.5 features the A10X Fusion processor under its hood, as the rumours predicted, along with an embedded M10 motion coprocessor.

The new Mac laptops and desktops have been update with Intel's Kaby Lake processors.

Like its predecessors, the new model comes with four speakers.

The iPad Pro's pricing starts at RM2,999 for the 10.5-inch model and RM3,499 for the 12.9-inch model. Yet for people who rely on specific Windows apps, specialised ones with no native version for the iOS, the iPad Pro might not prove a real laptop replacement. yet.

The screen itself is also pretty impressive, spanning 27 inches and 14.7 million pixels, with support for more than a billion colors.

Read our thoughts on the Apple iMac 21.5-inch and Apple iMac 27-inch models. It was already the best monitor on the market, but the improved display has even more colours, and was ridiculously bright in the dark hands-on area. Somewhat lost in the shuffle is the new MacBook. The redesigned Retina display is as stunning to look at as it is to touch. Like the HomePod, this souped-up machine isn't due in stores until December.

"It's unclear if they're going to do a stand-alone, headless Mac Pro", said Gillett, when asked whether he took the iMac Pro to be a stop-gap until the Mac Pro appears in 2018. The new MacBook Air models will also get a bump in processor speed. The MacBook Pro 2017 is a good addition to the line-up. The iMacs are capable of powering VR thanks to upgraded graphics cards inside, while the MacBooks require a Thunderbolt 3 external GPU. The MacBook Pro may be the star of the show this fall.

To be precise, the only change that was given to the Macbook Air is its processor.

If Apple is catching up to PCs when it comes to virtual reality, it's just leapfrogged over everyone in augmented reality.

There were reports the new iPad would ditch the home button and there were also reports of a bezel-free device, aside from the top of the display where the FaceTime camera sits but alas, not this time.
