Apple did not specify exactly which Kaby Lake processors are coming to new MacBook models during the keynote, but it's highly likely to use Intel's lower-power "Y-series" chips. Prices start at $1,099 and go up to $1,799, including a $1,299 4K model.

Finally, Apple showed off an update to its Metal graphics suite that provides developer access to the GPU. I'd say Apple announcing the iMac Pro is pretty much the nail in the coffin for the little black can design. The iMac pro is in a lovely space gray finish and boasts impressively powerful statistics.

While the new iMac Pro features same all-aluminum, curved shell we know and love since its introduction with the iMac 2017, Apple claims to have revolutionized the iMac Pro's internal cooling system. This is a huge improvement for iMacs and the MacBook, but it's deeply deeply annoying for those of us who bought the newly redesigned MacBook Pro back in November. And with a new space gray enclosure and gorgeous 27-inch Retina 5K display with support for 1 billion colors, iMac Pro is as stunning as it is powerful. The entry-level 21.5-inch iMac now has Intel Iris Plus graphics, which work 80 per cent faster than the previous generation.

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) that kicked off on Monday may be a software show, but the company unveiled some hardware surprises at the event. It is expected that the company produced 10.5-inch iPad Pro with a "frameless" screen. The truly insatiable will be able to add 128GB of ECC RAM and 4TB of PCIe SSD storage to their iMac Pros, as well.

Apple is giving its 12-inch MacBook laptop a spec bump. UPDATE AGAIN: Apple suggests this device will be available to purchase in December starting at $5,000 United States dollars.
