But there has still been some big news for fans of the company's iMac and MacBook lines.

The biggest iMac is getting more powerful too.

Fortunately for the macOS faithful, Apple delivered with three new mainline iMacs, all available for order right now.

The new iMac Pro is the "most powerful Mac ever made".

It's "packed with an Apple-designed upward-facing woofer for deep bass", says the Financial Times. The new GPU can fetch data at speeds of up to 400 Gbps, while being able to perform up to 11 teraflops, according to the company. Fusion Drive is now standard on all 27-inch configurations and the top-end 21.5-inch iMac, which also features a Retina 4K display and discrete graphics.

"The 12" MacBook - the one with a single USB Type-C port - has received minor price cuts as well and is now priced at Rs. 1,09,900 for the 256GB SSD variant (Rs. 1,12,900 earlier) and Rs. 1,34,900 for the 512GB SSD model (Rs. 1,39,900 earlier).

The screen itself is also pretty impressive, spanning 27 inches and 14.7 million pixels, with support for more than a billion colors.

It will take a slew of new features to iMessage in iCloud person-to-person payments with Apple Pay, Siri enhancements and more. Apple said that iPhone can detect when you may be driving and automatically silence notifications to keep the screen dark.

All three men involved in the attack were confronted and shot dead by armed officers within eight minutes of the first call. Opponents have lambasted her for cutting police numbers by 20,000 when she was interior minister between 2010 and 2016.

The Cupertino, California-based company said Siri, which also competes with Alphabet Inc's Google Assistant, would now work across devices. Internal thermal management also got an upgrade, allowing the desktop to handle up to 500 watts, 67 percent more than previous models.

As elegant as the little thing is, there's still one inescapable truth here, and that's the fact that it's literally a strip of leather with another, smaller strip of leather stitched to it, and it'll set you back nearly 30 bucks.

He also added that we have thrilled to give developers and customers a sneak peek at iMac Pro.

The iMac range now starts at Rs. 90,900 for the 21.5-inch non-Retina model, a price drop of Rs. 1,000, though you do get newer internals. It doesn't even get Intel's Kaby Lake processors. The MacBook Pro is roughly as heavy as the 13-inch MacBook Air, but it's still more expensive. The MacBook too has received Kaby Lake processors, 50 percent faster SSDs, and the same keyboard that shipped in the MacBook Pros previous year.

Other changes include the introduction of a new iPad Pro, the iOS 11 update, MacOS High Sierra, and the iMac Pro.
