Apple announces all-new iMac, MacBook updates

This week's top stories (WWDC 2017): HomePod, iOS 11, macOS High Sierra, watchOS 4, new pro iPads, iMacs

If you find yourself at that in-between stage where you need a better phone, but you're not quite ready for a new laptop, the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro - coming this fall - might be the flawless option for you.

Just like you don't need the new iPhone but you want to have it, you will want the iPad Pro.

Overall, if you have a first-generation iPad Pro and are happy with it, you may not find a compelling reason to upgrade to a new one. The new iPad Pro is priced at $649.

The only Android device that comes close is the HTC U11 with a Snapdragon 835 processor (175,241), but the iPad Pro is still 15 percent faster. It's only a hair larger, because Apple was able to cram a bigger screen into a similarly sized body by decreasing the bezels that surround the display. Aside from hugely expensive new iMac Pro (US$5000 for an entry level unit), the rest of the Mac range received a speed bump courtesy of a Kaby Lake heart transplant.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro has its own Smart Keyboard ($248).

For the most part, Apple has long kept its desktop and mobile experiences distinct from one another. - The iPads are available in Silver, Space Grey and Gold. The Pro 10.5 also comes with support for the DCI-P3 wide color gamut.

Internally, the iPad Pro is built around an updated A10X Fusion processor. Thanks to ProMotion, the feature improves anything on screen that's moving.

Steve Kerr, Tyronn Lue Both Were Confused By Draymond Green's Technical Foul
The All-Star forward said after the game that he knew the first technical was not his. "They messed that one up bad", Green said. Instead, the only history that can be made from this point on is by Cleveland , and only if the Cavs win the next three games.

The iPad Pro is the flawless mobile office. Brighter than ever - and noticeably so, it also has a much higher refresh rate.

Content is both the problem and the solution for Apple.

For one, there is a decent battery life.

According to another report published by PCGamesn, the performance figures on the upcoming AMD graphics cards haven't revealed yet. But that may not be the case when the new version of iOS arrives.

The new model scores 4,144 (single-core) and 9,797 (multi-core) in the Geekbench 3 benchmark test.

I don't consider myself a power user by any means. While the 9.7in and original 12.9in models managed 4844 and 5095 respectively, the 10.5in iPad Pro ranked a staggering 9380. "The iPad Pro is very much a spare-no-expense device". Not that the old tablet was a slowpoke. But on what I've seen so far, the combination looks enticing. Couple it with a few editing tools and the new iPad Pro could make a convincing all-in-one film studio. But to be sure, you can check this by clicking on Check availability after choosing your model. Or if you're catching a flight, the boarding pass will automatically show up.

The new 2017 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models that were introduced at last week's Worldwide Developers Conference are now available for purchase at Apple retail stores around the world. While I still prefer the heft of a laptop keyboard for prolonged writing sessions, this lightweight attachment is a useful tool for professionals less focused on typing. The 10.5-inch model is also equipped with a 30.8 Wh battery, which is slightly smaller than the 12.9-inch model (38.8 Wh) but an upgrade from the 9.7-inch iPad Pro (27.91 Wh).
