What’s next for Apple’s next generation iMac?
A year after the introduction of the first iMac, the Mac Pro continues to evolve, but the desktop machine has only just begun to show its age.
Apple has now released two new versions of the Mac, one with a 4K display and the other with a smaller, 10.6-inch screen.
The new Mac Pro’s new display has an even smaller bezel, and it looks more like a small laptop than a desktop.
The overall design is a bit more subdued and the keyboard is more subtle, but both are clearly meant to appeal to professionals who want to work on their laptops with a bit less distraction.
Both models of the new Mac feature a new, fully-featured Thunderbolt port.
Thunderbolt 3, which is coming to the Macs in October, has been designed to transfer data at speeds up to 40Gbps.
This is a significant improvement over Thunderbolt 2, which can transfer data in a single-digit gigabyte range, and the newer ports are also faster.
While the new Thunderbolt 3 port looks like it’s going to make an appearance on the Macbook Air, it’s not quite ready yet.
Apple is still waiting for the full specification of the Thunderbolt 3 to be finalized, but we know from previous leaks that the device will feature an integrated DisplayPort 1.2, which will enable video and audio playback.
The Thunderbolt 3 DisplayPort connectors will be made available in October.
The Thunderbolt 3 ports also appear to support up to a 20Gbps bandwidth transfer rate.
That’s higher than the previous Thunderbolt 3 specification, which allowed up to 16Gbps in a 10Gbps configuration.
The new Thunderbolt 2 ports can transfer between 10G and 20G data at up to 20G.
Apple has yet to announce which of the two new Thunderbolt ports will support more than one device, but it’s possible that Thunderbolt 3 will support multiple displays.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any announcements.
Apple’s new MacBook Pros are now available in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Singapore, and Spain.
The MacBook Air has also launched, and we’ll have more detailed reviews coming soon.
