New iMacs With ‘High Sierra’ Update Offers Hard-core Storage, Video, and Graphics
Apple has just announced its iMac and MacBook lines during its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California on Monday. The iPad and iPhone maker announced an overhaul of the Mac product family, with the latest macOS High Sierra and a new range of iMacs.
The updated software, which will get its public release in the autumn will offer a new core of technologies and opportunities for developers looking to join the VR bandwagon, and refinements to apps such as Safari, Photos, and Mail.
At the WWDC's keynote, Tim Cook said that Mac is the "heart and soul of Apple," and "no-one can match Mac's deep integration of hardware and software."
The major upgrade went to Apple's iMac line, all of which will get a performance boost powered by Intel's 7th generation Kaby Lake processors as well as increased memory capacity. High-end 21.5" models and all 27" models now come with Fusion Drive standard, which allows users to have a high-capacity drive that's up to 3TB and as fast as the smaller SSDs which come with the low-end iMacs.
More so, two Thunderbolt 3 ports for super-fast data transfer are also standard and users won't even need any of Apple's infamous dongles, the reason is unlike the MacBook line, iMacs still have USB ports. Vice President of hardware engineering, John Turnus, stated at the WWDC conference that the iMac range will include more upgraded displays of 500 units or a sum of 43 percent brighter than the previous models which support up to one billion colors.
Users can now be able to upgrade to a 4K Retina display on the 21.5" iMac while a 5K Retina display on the 27" iMac. Powering these screens, the iMac lineup is getting more powerful graphics cards, with up to three times the speed of the previous models. Also, VR support is finally coming to the iMac.
Furthermore, The final version of macOS High Sierra will be available until the autumn and we expect it to arrive on the Mac App Store around September 19. As for the pricing details of the latest iMacs, a starting price of $1,099 for the 21.5" models and $1,799 for the 27" models and are already available for shipping.
