AMD unveils Radeon Pro 500 Series graphics cards

To save you rewatching Apple's two-and-a-bit-hour long keynote, we've rounded up eight of the biggest announcements from this year's WWDC below. And it didn't do a good job of differentiating it from "normal" iPads. The most important physical perspective of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is that the device still weighs in at just one pound, Engadget reported.

It includes major changes to Apple Pay and Messages as well as the Camera and Photos apps. It's a workaround at best and doesn't really address the very closed nature of Apple's computers.

An embedded Apple SIM2 and support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi and LTE Advanced3 make it easier to stay connected when traveling in more than 180 countries and regions. It says they've managed to do this while still keeping it just as quiet as the current models, which should appeal to creatives who use these computers in audio-post environments.

Apple's smallest iPad Pro is getting bigger.

But the Apple Pencil, like Surface Pen, will always be a side story. It'll protect your iPad Pencil from scrapes and scratches I guess, but iPad owners are probably more concerned about losing the damn thing in the first place. And the software that will run on it.

"The 21.5" model starts at €1,349, while the 4K version starts at €1,749. It will have a Retina 5K display and can drive external 5K displays. Both get the new new A10X Fusion chip that packs half-a-dozen compute cores and 12 GPU cores.

The new iMacs feature Intel's newest Kaby Lake processors along with an upgraded display that Apple claims to be the "best Mac display ever". The new panels inside Apple's 4K 21.5-inch and 5K 27-inch iMacs produce 500 nits of luminance and support up to 1 billion colors. The Smart Keyboard is available in charcoal gray for US$159 for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and US$169 for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with layouts for over 30 languages, including simplified Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Spanish. The 12.9-inch version starts at $799 for 64GB of storage and Wi-Fi, or $929 for 64GB of storage with cellular connectivity.

"Today we're going to introduce an all new iPad Pro". It eclipses even the Mac Pro which is nominally Apple's top of the line desktop. You can sample this functionality now in Beta form if you're a registered Apple developer, and a public beta will arrive in late June.

More information on the new Radeon Pro 500 series is available from the official website. It is said to support up to twice the amount of memory as the previous models. It comes with a new advanced featured that bring the macOS experience to the phone. And with both Split View and Slide Over, you can actually have three apps on-screen at the same time.

Apple has finally, after years of pressure from professionals, answered the call to update their top-of-the-line Mac. Storage options are also different, with the 10.5-incher offered in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB variants.

Beyond the visual differences, the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro has made improvements under the hood with a new A10X Fusion chip powering the high-end laptop replacement.
