Apple announce new hardware and software at WWDC17.

Date Added 13/06/2017

Every year, thousands of developers flock to California for Apples Worldwide Developers Conference to see the tech giants showcase their latest hardware and software. This year certainly didn’t disappoint with the announcement of iOS 11, watchOS 4, macOS High Sierra and several new hardware updates to the iMac, MacBook and MacBook Pro along with a 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

But perhaps the most impressive of all was the arrival of 2 new products. The iMac Pro and a smart speaker called HomePod.

Boasting up to 18 cores and turbo boost speeds up to 4.5GHz, the new iMac Pro could prove to be a big hit for users when it comes to rendering files and editing 4k video. Another feature of the iMac Pro, is the debut of the Radeon Pro Vega graphics chip. Over 3 times faster than any previous iMac GPU, the new chip allows for higher frame rates for VR and real-time 3D rendering. Other features of the iMac Pro include a Retina 5K display and support for 128GB of memory and a 4TB SSD. The iMac Pro is due for release in December.

Combined with Apple-engineered technology and advanced software, the HomePod is a smart speaker capable of analysing the acoustics and adjusting it’s sound based on it’s location in a room giving users an immersive listening experience. The HomePod boasts seven tweeters that allow for true, consistent 360-degree audio and along with it’s powerful A8 chip designed by Apple, can handle real-time modelling of the woofer mechanics, buffering faster than real time and advanced echo cancellation. Controlled via Siri, the HomePod is also capable of keeping you updated with the latest news, sport, weather and along with Apple Music, gives you access to one of the biggest music catalogues in the world. Like the iMac Pro, the HomePod is also due for release in December.
