The iMac rumors weren’t supposed to surface in the WWDC, thus it came like a surprise to the Apple lovers. Apple introduced new 4K 21.5 and 27-inch iMac models with no external but various internal updates.

The new variant is packed with faster Kaby Lake processors up to 4.2 GHz, Thunderbolt 3, powerful graphics, faster storage options and improved retina displays that support 1 billion colors and are 43% brighter than the displays used in previous generation iMacs. The new iMacs are available for order since June 5. Along with the updated iMac also joins in the new iMac Pro, a space gray beast of a machine which is supposed to enter in December this year.

While there is not much change in the design of the standard 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac, the new iMac Pro will encase a darker deeper presentation along with a re-modeled, enhanced inside. Apple explained: “We reengineered the whole system and designed an entirely new thermal architecture to pack extraordinary performance into the elegant, quiet iMac enclosure our customers love — iMac is a huge step forward and there’s never been anything like it.”

iMac Pro 2017:

The iMac Pro is the fastest most powerful iMac ever built. It will feature a 27-inch 5K Display in a space gray enclosure. The iMac Pro uses next-generation Intel Xeon processors with up to 8-cores, supported by a totally new thermal design which increases its cooling capacity by 80%. It has the Radeon Pro Vega GPU with 11 Teraflops of single-precision compute power and 22 Teraflops of half-precision computation, supports up to 4TB of solid state storage and 128GB of ECC memory. 10Gb Ethernet and 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports that can drive two high-performance RAID arrays and 2 5K displays at the same time. Whoops! Now that’s what you call a beast! The starting price will be $4,999.
