iMac Pro tipped to feature always-on ‘Hey Siri’, A10 Fusion chip

While we don't have an official release date just yet, Apple's new iMac Pro is still due for release before the year's end. With that window quickly closing, a few interesting details about Apple's high-end desktop have begun to surface thanks to developers getting their hands on the BridgeOS 2.0 software.

Apple let me down: 3 things I wanted to see at WWDC 2017

At a jam-packed two and a half hours, Apple's WWDC 2017 keynote certainly wasn't slow going. iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra; the Siri-powered HomePod and new MacBook Pro and MacBook Configurations; the updated iMac and the sneak peek of the stealthily-seductive iMac Pro: this year's Apple developer conference bucked the trend and mixed new software and hardware. All well and good, but I went into WWDC day one with some back-of-the-envelope expectations, and those turned out to be dashed.

The iMac Pro is the gorgeous Darth Vader of Apple products

The iMac Pro is classic Apple. Although the flagship all-in-one desktop isn't set to reach Apple Store shelves until December this year, and while it will carry an eye-watering price tag when it does, there's something about the Mac-maker's combination of style, hyperbole, and pure performance that is bound to give desktop computer upgraders pause if they're poised over buying another workstation. Here at WWDC 2017, where the wraps have just been taken off the Space Gray iMac Pro, it's hard to resist its charms.
