Apple also updated its iMac, Macbook and Macbook Pro line-up at WWDC 2017 in San Jose. While there’s no significant design changes in the outside, the under-the-hood parts have received a much-needed boost.
The new iMac line is beefed up with more powerful graphics, faster processors, Thunderbolt 3 and a better display. Sporting Kaby Lake processors up to 4.2GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz, the updated iMac line — including 27-inch and 21.5-inch iMac models — has Fusion Drive as a standard, which is now up to 50 percent faster.
The graphics segment has new Radeon Pro 500-series with up to 8GB of vRAM across the line, which is up to three times faster on the 21.5-inch model, and up to 50 percent on the 27-inch. The display is now 43 percent brighter at 500 nits, with support for 1 billion colors.
The new MacBook and MacBook Pro deliver the world’s best portable computing experience. Weighing just two pounds and measuring 13.1mm in thickness, the new MacBook packs faster Kaby Lake processors up to 1.3GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz, and up to 50 percent faster SSD.
The updated 13-inch MacBook Pro sports Kaby Lake processors up to 3.5GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.0 GHz, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro does it at 3.1GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.1GHz. Apple also refreshed the 13-inch MacBook Air with 1.8GHz processor, though it didn’t mention which generation.
