One of the new devices that Apple unveiled was the iMac Pro, which the company describes as "the most powerful Mac ever". This is the idea behind today's iMac. The updated MacBook will run on 1.8 GHz processor that previously started with 1.6 GHz.

The new iMac Pro is powered with an 8-core Intel Xeon processor and it can be configured with an 18-core processor variant as well.

The basic configuration of the iMac Pro will cost $4999.

All that computing power needs copious interconnect bandwidth to communicate with the outside world, and Apple is delivering with four Thunderbolt 3 ports and a built-in 10Gb Ethernet NIC.

With thin and light designs, powerful performance, unbelievable displays and all-day battery life, Mac notebooks deliver the world's best portable computing experience.* MacBook now features faster Kaby Lake processors up to 1.3 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 3.6 GHz and up to 50 percent faster SSD, and supports up to twice the memory. The MacBook Air's been given a modest upgrade to a 1.8Ghz Core i5, leaving it trailing similarly svelte laptops. All of Apple's notebooks will be getting a refresh as well.

Apple also introduced updates to iMacs.

The rest of the room was set up to show off the new software capabilities of the new Macs and iPads, WWDC being a conference for developers after all.

These new improvements are intuitive iOS interpretations of the actions we know from desktop computers, adding productivity power to the iPad, without impacting the famously simple-to-use device.

At the WWDC 2017, Apple gave a sneak peek into one of its upcoming desktops.

"WWDC When Microsoft revealed its Surface Studio previous year, more than a few observers looked at its 28" touch screen and accompanying Dial touch wheel and wondered whether Apple could offer something similarly startling for workstation-class users. The new iMac Pro will be running on a latest MacOS High Sierra. And with a new space grey enclosure and gorgeous 27-inch Retina 5K display with support for 1 billion colours, iMac Pro is as stunning as it is powerful.

Graphics - Radeon Pro Vega GPU, memory, graphic system, up to 16 GB of VRAM.

Apple expects the desktop to be used for high-end graphics and editing work to advanced gaming and VR content creation as well as real-time 3D rendering. The dedicated graphics card is from AMD's new workstation-class Vega series, which will allow up to 22 teraflops of half-precision floating point performance. Aside from that, Apple also updated the regular iMac lineup with new 7th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, up to 64GB of RAM and Apple's Fusion drives as standard.
