Mac Pro to Become Available in December, Starting at $2,999





Announced yesterday, Apple's new cylindrical Mac Pro will hit store shelves no sooner than in December. As to the price, it is said to start at $2,999. Pretty expensive, I agree, but believe me, the new desktop is worth its money.

As to the tech specs, the revamped Mac Pro (base model) features a 3.7GHz Intel Xeon E5 processor, 12GB of RAM, dual FirePro D300 GPUs with 2GB of video RAM each and 256GB of SSD. Moreover, the new Mac Pro now can support up to three 4K displays at once.

As you see, the new device is incredibly fast. That is why it would be a perfect choice for all those who have to work with graphics, music or video.

Apple to Offer Surface-Style Keyboard Cover for iPad?



Jamie Ryan, Apple’s former employee, says there’s a Surface-style keyboard cover in the works. Ryan has reportedly been speaking to some people at the company, who shared with him the information about prototypes.

It’s not clear whether the process is far enough along to make this Tuesdays event but they did say a few different styles had been in testing for a while. This would certainly allow Apple to differentiate the larger iPad from its little brother and market it as the more ’pro’ of the 2. Apple already sells a Bluetooth keyboard that functions perfectly with the iPad but it’s not quite as integrated as Microsofts offering, requiring a lot more bag space.

It is interesting whether Apple will show us the new iPad case on Tuesday or not.

Apple to Unveil New iPads on October 22nd?



According to AllThingsD, Apple will officially unveil its new iPad 5 and probably a redesigned iPad mini with Retina display on Tuesday, October 22nd. The site experts claim that the media event can take place either at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts or at Apple's Town Hall auditorium.

The fifth generation iPad is expected to feature a thinner, lighter design akin to the iPad mini’s and an improved camera. It will run Apple’s new 64-bit A7 chip. The second-generation iPad mini will be upgraded with a retina display and also see the A7 incorporated into its innards. It’s not clear whether Apple’s new iPads will feature the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that recently debuted on the iPhone 5s, though that has been rumored.

Apple hasn’t neither confirmed, nor denied the information about new products’ launch yet.
