Apple unveils ‘the most powerful Mac we have ever made’

|

  • IMac Pro is the most powerful computer Apple has ever announced.
  • It includes a super-sharp 5K display.
  • It’ll start at $4,999 and will launch in December.

Apple unveiled the iMac Pro on Monday, saying it’s the most powerful Mac ever made.

It will ship with an 8-core Xeon processor, a 10-core processor or an 18-core processor, the company announced at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.

The iMac Pro features a 5K display and, thanks to the added muscle under the hood, can support two additional 5K displays, something Apple says it has never offered before. The processing power is enough to help Apple power VR, too, which will be supported in macOS High Sierra, the latest macOS operating system.

Apple said folks can expect real-time 3-D rendering, a 1080p FaceTime camera for sharper video chats and more. It will start at $4,999 when it launches in December. You can expect that price to increase as you outfit the computer with more powerful processors.

The iMac Pro wasn’t the only computer announced during the show. Apple also announced refreshes to the iMac, the MacBook Pro and the iMac during WWDC.

And it announced that iOS 11 will support peer-to-peer payments through a new feature called Pay Cash.

Is SA’s mining industry too deep in the COVID-19 crisis?

The Covid-19 pandemic has far-reaching economic ramifications on the productivity and profits of many industries without the exception of the mining industry. For more than a century mining was a flourishing industry in South Africa. In 2019 it contributed close to R361 billion or 8.1 per cent to SA’s GDP and over R91 billion to fixed investment. It employed 454,861 people and paid R24.3 billion in taxes.
