Buy a New Apple iMac or Wait for iMac Pro?

It has also upgraded the most visible element of the iMac, its large and vibrant display.

It's all very clever technology, and at first listen the HomePod easily bested market leader Sonos in a side-by-side comparison. The new operating systems are expected to be released in the fall.

There's quite a bit more of this going on with the software used with new iPad Pro.

While Apple has refreshed its standard iPad with the 9.7-inch iPad model earlier in the year, the iPad Pro line hasn't seen an update for some time.

iOS 11 features a swag of iPad only features, including a new Files app, a new dock, and new drag-and-drop features to enable better multitasking and sharing between apps. It unveiled the new iMac Pro, a device which it hopes will convince sceptical consumers that it still knows how to build performance hardware. Apple pulled this off by reducing the tablet's bezel by 40 percent. It offers far more power than most PC laptops, yet is delightfully simple to use. It's a truly minor change, however, moving up from 1.6 GHz to 1.8 GHz, but it's still a fifth-generation Intel processor (Broadwell) and not the newer seventh generation (Kaby Lake). They'll come in handy on the kickass model, so you can connect two 5K external displays (or four 4K displays) along with a Thunderbolt 3 SSD or RAID array. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is also getting a little more affordable with a new $1,299 starting price, and the inclusion of Intel Iris Plus Graphics 650 should make the higher-end MacBooks better able to handle intensive graphics. While this group will certainly appreciate the iMac Pro, it's better suited to professionals with even more challenging workloads, like a CGI computer animator, an automotive designer, an oil/gas research scientist combing undersea strata for fossil fuels, or a medical research professor using VR to look at MRI brain imagery in a different way. So the new Pro has a 12-megapixel sensor on the back, plus another 7-megapixel model on the front. The screen is brighter and more intelligent at displaying colours and white balance arrays than previous iPads. The 21.5-inch iMac (Retina 4K 2017) can be upgraded. In most cases, this isn't a "Touch Bar" secondary display but an SD card slot and several USB ports.

In a nutshell however, the new MacBook Pro features a superior display to the MacBook Air. The tech giant has now demonstrated how users can place a virtual lamp and coffee cup on to a real desk using the iPad Pro's camera. But this year's iMac Pro is generously well-specced, and perfectly suited for any performance-hogging task you put before it. Both are also up for sale on the Apple Store.

Apple Watch will have three new faces- Siri, Kaleidoscope, and Toy Story.

You're still stuck with the same not-great 480p webcam, and there's just that single USB-C port for all your power and connectivity needs, which will be a deal-breaker for many.

Along with upgrading the processors, Apple has also upgraded the MacBook Pro's graphic hardware. It also means that the Cupertino powerhouse can offer new services to its customers without the annoying effort of having to come up with the ideas first.

ARkit makes immersive augmented reality apps possible on iOS.

There's also a redesigned app switcher that brings Spaces to iOS.
