Apple unveils Indian prices of new iPads and Macs

Soon, iPhones will block texts while driving

As a developers conference, it's no surprise that Apple's WWDC keynote today - not to mention its scheduled programs for the rest of the week - will primarily focus on software. The displays on the new iMacs gain a significant boost in maximum brightness, making them approximately 43% brighter than the previous models.

To give its Mac OS powered desktop a premium appeal, Apple has slightly tinkered with the characteristic design of the iMac range. Additionally, the new iMacs, which have 21.5- and 27-inch screens, will get more ports for users to attach accessories. With support for 30-bit colour and a P3 color gamut, it'll be easier than ever to fine-tune onscreen details.

Now the iMacs are great machines but they have never been considered as professional workstation replacement, until now. Although the spec bumps and slashed prices were welcome, it was the unexpected iMac Pro that really stole the show. It is also worth noting that the AiO desktop would support up to 128GB of ECC memory. It could go much, much higher if iPhone 8 is a barn-burner of a new model.

After unveiling the refreshed iMac desktops and MacBook Pro, AMD's Senior Vice President and Chief Architect disclosed the benchmark to the public. Apple said the computer is the most powerful Mac it has ever built, with the latest and most powerful processors on the market.
