The new iMac Pro with a gorgeous 5k display, considered to be not only the most lovely iMac version to be made by Apple, but rather also the most powerful Mac ever to be made. Apple says it's the most powerful Mac ever made. So far there is no word on worldwide pricing, and no indication of what the most powerful iteration of the device - with 18-core Xeon processors, a Radeon Pro Vega GPU with 16GB of VRAM and a 4TB SSD hard drive - will cost.

Apple has announced updates to its iMac line at WWDC, giving its all-in-one desktop more powerful specifications and the latest Intel chips. (The top model Radeon Pro 580 is roughly equivalent to an Nvidia 1060) Those new GPUs, along with updates in macOS High Sierra, also means that the new iMacs will support VR. The iMac Pro will be with us later this year, but there's plenty of other Mac news - read on! It comes in "space gray" and has a 5K display with graphics running on AMD's new Radeon Vega graphics GPU. Now, the new series of iMacs is official, with improved displays, better CPUs and much better graphics performance. Some features Apple touched on include support for 500 nits, making it them 43% brighter than previous displays, 10-bit dithering, and support for up to one billion colors.

The new 10.5-inch model offers room for a full-size keyboard, something the 9.7 inch model couldn't.

Apple hasn't given up on its most serious Mac customers.
