Video: Top 6 WWDC 2017 announcements

If you didn’t have the time to work through a plethora of details regarding yesterday’s news, just block five minutes of your time and watch our video walkthrough of the top six WWDC 2017 announcements that you should know about.

iMac Pro tech specs

Apple’s iMac Pro is the most powerful Mac ever made, reaching out specifically to the work-space professionals who demand more power. These are the tech specs of the new iMac Pro.

New iMacs could sport Xeon E3 chips, ECC RAM, Thunderbolt 3/USB-C, new keyboard & more

Following up on a comment from Apple’s Phil Schiller regarding upcoming iMacs with pro-grade features, Pike’s Universum today shared a few specifics on what said upgrades might entail. Citing a “pretty accurate” source, the blog claims next-gen iMacs will feature Intel’s more powerful Xeon E3 chips with up to sixty-four gigabytes of Error-Correcting Code (ECC) RAM, faster flash storage with capacities up to two terabytes, Thunderbolt 3, USB-C and more.

Apple is “sorry” about “a pause” in Mac upgrades

A quick look at MacRumors’ Buyers Guide is all it takes to realize Apple’s neglected its Mac fans with slow upgrades. Part of the problem lies in Apple’s heavy reliance on Intel. Making matters worse, the chip maker abandoned its tick-tock release schedule as it’s become economically unsustainable.

Perhaps that’s why Apple summoned its senior executives Phil Schiller, Craig Federighi and John Ternus for “a small roundtable discussion about Mac” with five journalists (Matthew Panzarino, Lance Ulanoff, Ina Fried, John Paczkowski and John Gruber).

Apple: “great” pro-level iMacs are in the pipeline, slated for release this year

Talking to a cherry-picked group of reporters in a white stucco building near Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Phil Schiller, and Senior Vice President of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, have officially confirmed that new iMacs are coming later this year.

What’s more, the new all-in-one desktops will appeal to a segment of pro users as well. Apple also issued a minor spec-bump to the aging Mac Pro today.
