Unfortunately, iOS 10 is pre-loaded, as pre-orders start today, with shipping underway next week.
Still, my discomfort is also good news for Apple fans, because there's an bad lot to go through. The update includes higher drive capacities and new Kaby Lake processors. The device comes out with 3 thunderbolt 3 ports, as well as supports 10-Gigabit Ethernet. The SSDs are 50 per cent faster and can be configured with up to 2TB of storage, Apple said. Apple also confirmed that the entry level iMac models will have the Intel Iris Plus Graphics which is up to 80 percent faster graphics than the previous generation.
Apple has also taken heed of users' repeated requests for increased graphical processing power with the inclusion of a range of options from Intel Iris Pro Graphics 640 with 64MB of eDRAM to a range of options from Radeon's dedicated GPUs between 555 to the 580 with 4-8GB of RAM depending on your chosen configuration. The iMac Pro design doesn't deviate much from the iMac but does look sexier in a Space Grey color.
The new OS gives iPads a redesigned dock at the bottom of the screen that acts more like the dock on an iMac.
Both tablets come with an embedded Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and as with the original iPad Pro, the larger tablets in the line-up will also carry Apple Pencil support. "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 Pro is a huge step forward and there's never been anything like it".
