If there is one gripe that many iMac and MacBook owners have is that the front-facing camera installed on their computers is definitely not up to par with some of the third-party options out there. For example for a computer that can display a 5K resolution, the FaceTime camera on the iMac is a measly HD.
What sets the new iMac Pro apart from the regular iMac? For those who are more keenly-eyed, the lack of a back panel which on the iMac would have allowed users to swap/upgrade the RAM on the computer themselves. However we suppose the more obvious difference is that the iMac Pro is being offered in a Space Grey finish.
As far as official Apple Stores in Australia are concerned, there are quite a few scattered throughout the country. However it seems like that isn’t enough because Apple has since announced their plans to launch a “global flagship” store in Federation Square, which is located in the city of Melbourne, Australia.
More often than not, it is usually cheaper to upgrade your computer yourself by purchasing parts from outside rather than directly from your computer maker. The only downside is that it isn’t covered by your warranty (and might void your warranty) and you’ll have to do it yourself, which can be daunting for users who aren’t familiar with the process.
We already knew that the iMac Pro would not come cheap. When Apple finally announced the computer’s availability, it was also revealed that its starting price was at $4,999, which puts it well beyond the reach of the average computer user. Then again it does pack some impressive hardware and a custom T2 chip for enhanced security.
Many power users who swear by the iMac have been waiting to get their hands on the new iMac Pro. The company had promised to release the powerful new iMac before the end of this year and it’s going to follow through on the promise. Apple has now started selling the iMac Pro online and shipments are slated to arrive by December 27th.
If you’re looking to get a new computer and don’t know what to do with your old one, Apple offers a trade-in program where Mac users can trade-in their older Mac computer for a new one, where they could previously get up to $1,500 in trade-in value. We say “previously” because the good news is that the value of the trade-in has been increased.
While on the surface the iMac Pro might seem like just a very souped up version of the regular iMac, it appears that Apple was serious when they said that they were designing it for professionals. Apple touts various impressive hardware specs on the iMac Pro’s website, but there are also some features that they did not mention.
We have been hearing reports that despite us being in the second week of December, that the iMac Pro is still on track for a release by the end of the year. The good news is that if you were eyeing the computer, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has confirmed the iMac Pro’s availability for the 14th of December, 2017.
Apple’s iMac Pro was announced earlier this year and it was expected to see a release before the end of the year. Given that we’re in the second week of December and there is still no word from Apple, it’s safe to say that many are assuming that the iMac Pro might only see a 2018 release.
When it comes to Apple’s products, it’s hard not to associate the design of some of the company’s more iconic products with its design chief, Jony Ive. However in case you didn’t know, Ive has been hands-off for the past couple of years from the day-to-day management of the design team, but he has since returned to his role.
When Apple launched the iMac Pro, they did not mention when the computer would be available for purchase, save that it would be released in 2018. However it seems that we might have a date on our hands, thanks to a recent Google Search listing in which it suggests that the computer could be launched on the 18th of December, 2017.
You might think that a store is just a store, but some companies actually take the time to carefully design their stores to make it more than just somewhere you buy their products. This is why you might have noticed that certain stores are designed a certain way, and this is what Apple is going for in their upcoming downtown Brooklyn store.
In the past we have seen how Apple has filed for patents for computers, like the MacBook, that could feature cellular connectivity. The basic idea is to give it access to mobile internet, meaning that like the iPhone or iPad with cellular, it can connect without having to rely on WiFi. However for the most part it has existed as a mere idea.
