Apple shows off new iPads in promo video

Apple shows off new iPads in promo video

The 10.5-inch model completely replaces the old 9.7-inch iPad Pro, although you can still get the rather big 12.9-inch version if you want to go super-sized.

The firm has enhanced iOS 11 particularly for the new iPad versions.

The iMac range now starts at Rs. 90,900 for the 21.5-inch non-Retina model, a price drop of Rs. 1,000, though you do get newer internals.

You can buy a new MacBook Pro directly from Apple online. Upgrading to the Wi-Fi + Cellular edition will set buyers back by Rs 63900, Rs 71900, and Rs 87900, correspondingly. We could see both the tablets holding the same storage capacities, but differs in cost.

Well, the new iPad has a lot of new features that you can experience only if you purchase it.

As with the new iMac models, these updated notebooks are all available now. The MacBook Air comes with a 1.8 GHz processor.

The specs certainly bear out Apple's description ... The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is available in silver, space grey and gold starting at RRP NZ$1299 inc. Apple is claiming that its new thermal design will improve cooling by up to 80 percent, but that's the kind of promise we want to see independently evaluated.

iMac Pro - During the private media meeting in which Apple executives confessed to the company's sins with regard to the Mac Pro, mention was made of pro-related announcements about the iMac coming this year. By eliminating the bezels and stretching the display to nearly entire front of slate Apple was able to fit a larger display without increasing the physical size of tablet.

Even better, they feature ProMotion, a new technology that allows the iPad Pro to up its screen's refresh rate to 120Hz, double the previous rate. In the brief amount of time I spent with the device, I didn't run into any instances of slowdown and this isn't something I was able to say about the previous iteration.

New smart speaker expected as Apple kicks off conference
Apple's Siri agent on the iPhone is available in 21 languages, although the HomePod will initially ship only for English. Elsewhere at the 2017 WWDC in San Jose, California, Apple confirmed a range of new operating systems for its devices.


A look at what is and isn't known about the London attack
Packed with people enjoying the summer night, the area around London Bridge and Borough Market soon turned to chaos and panic. According to neighbours, the attacker had lived there for about three years and was married with two children.


Apple's Siri speaker to be an audiophile-pleasing smart home hub
Unlike Amazon's recent Echo Show , Apple's speaker won't include a screen - that's according to people who have seen the product. Regarding the manufacturing, the report says, Inventec Corp . which already makes AirPods will be producing the Siri speakers .


Note that I'm not talking about pen or pencil input, which I applaud on both the iPad Pro and the Surface Pro.

Part of the reason for that difference in dimensions is the greater screen-to-body ratio of the new iPad Pro. The 13-inch non-Touch Bar MacBook Pro with two Thunderbolt 3 ports starts at $1,729, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar begins at $2,399 CAD.

The advanced Retina display is Apple's brightest iPad display yet and features antireflective coating.

Although the new components are significant, Apple hasn't been content to stop at what's inside. The consumer electronics giant has reduced the bordering around the screen by 40 per cent, while also keeping the weight of the systems under 1lb. The 13-inch MacBook Pro TouchBar models are cheaper by Rs. 1,000 each at Rs. 1,54,900 and Rs. 1,71,900 respectively for the 256GB and 512GB SSD storage variants.

Meanwhile, the larger iPad Pro comes in at 305.7 x 220.6 x 6.9mm. The non-Retina, entry-level iMac gets an Intel Iris Plus 640 GPU, and the 21.5-inch with 4K offers the Radeon Pro 555 and 560 graphics cards.

What the Mac Pro offers - in its current configuration - is customization and after-sale upgrading by the user, something virtually impossible to do with an iMac. Optical Image Stabilization, a TrueTone flash, f/1.8 aperture and 4K video capture are all included.

Both the MacBook Pro and Retina MacBook are still almost impossible to fix yourself. This is identical to the last generation of the tablet.

Now, though, with the iPad Pro, it's a thing. And now, both the tablets are available for the pre-orders, at the retailer, Best Buy. The new 12.9-inch iPad Pro starts at $38.74 a month for 24 months; 0% April, on Verizon device payment ($929.99 retail).
