Apple refreshes MacBook and MacBook Pro at WWDC 2017

But can the improvements under the bonnet justify the eye-popping prices?

One thing that hasn't changed about the MacBook is the colour choices. It replaces the 9.7-inch version, although Apple is keeping the 12.9-inch model, which it also refreshed at WWDC.

Here are all the details on what sets the new 10.5ins iPad Pro apart from its predecessor. The new display is also a little brighter, and a little faster-refreshing, all of which Apple says will make a big difference to how the users use it. The tech giant has now demonstrated how users can place a virtual lamp and coffee cup on to a real desk using the iPad Pro's camera.

Until then, here's a look at what's new inside of the 2017 iMac.

The 10.5 model starts at £619 for the 64GB version. This narrative can arguably be traced back to the company's 2013 Mac Pro design and only picked up steam following the release of Apple's 2016 MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar.

Seeing as the new version was just officially announced by Apple, it's no secret that it's now available for beta testing only by developers.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro launches with prices ranging from $649 to $1,079. However, they will now come with twice the storage, making them more appealing from a VFM perspective. With the screen size of the iPad devices increasing, the Pro variant comes out with a almost 13 inched display, which is as big as the smaller MacBook devices.

Read our first impressions of the iMac Pro. This model costs $2,399. Even so, with a 2.3GHz dual core i5 processor, it's anything but basic. Still, this change is mostly about the screen size. However, there is also the option of AMD Radeon Pro 555 with 2GB of VRAM or Radeon Pro 560 with 4GB of VRAM.

Apple offers two standard configuration and each model can be customised, which can drive up the price.

Despite the stellar features, Apple has not confirmed new details, thus everything should be taken with a grain of salt in mind.
