Apple unveils 'the most powerful Mac we have ever made'

Apple also reveal a new iPad Pro line-up, which now features a new screen size if 10.5 in addition to the larger 12.9-inch already offered by the company.

WWDC 2017: Featuring next-generation Intel Xeon processors up to 18 cores, iMac Pro is created to handle demanding pro workflows.

The 21.5-inch model can be configured up to 32GB of RAM, while the 27-inch can get up to 64 GB of RAM.

Apple has upgraded most of its Mac computers, including a powerful new offering for professional users, showing renewed commitment to a product line that critics say it neglected amid lacklustre growth. The 21.5-inch model delivers up to three times faster performance and the 27-inch model is up to 50% faster.

The Cupertino-based giant announced that the new iMac will sport the "best Mac display ever" which is 43 percent brighter at 500 nits and with support for one billion colours. Apple has announced that the new iMac will be available to order starting Monday via apple.com, and will be available to buy in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday.

Apple upgraded all the MacBook Pros it had introduced in 2016, and the 2017 versions come with Intel's 7th generation Kaby Lake processors.

A prototype Apple iMac Pro is seen during the annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California.

Apple has taken its iMac and given it a shot the arm, with boosted processing and graphics power to create a workstation-level all-in-one machine.

Up to 18-core Xeon processor.

iMac Pro also supports up to 4TB of SSD and up to 128GB of ECC memory. The new iPad Pro is larger with a 10.5-inch display - an upgrade of almost an inch.

Finally, Apple will be releasing new space gray wireless accessories - Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Trackpad 2 - to go with the space gray design of the iMac Pro. Apple said the system is designed for "advanced graphics editing, virtual reality content creation and real-time 3D rendering". Yes, the new iMac Pro is a computer that costs as much as a decent used auto, but all for good reason.

Keep in mind that with the exception of the MacBook Air, all of the new Macs are powered by Intel's most powerful new processors.

Speaking of which, the iMac Pro is just 8 inches thin when you consider the stand, and it weighs only 21.5 lbs.
