As they were explaining each of the Mac Pro features I could just see dollars mounting up. I'd love to know what a fully spec'd unit would cost. Amazingly powerful but I personally would never have a use for such a thing even though I'd love to have that shiny case sitting under my desk. 

 

The screen is also pretty amazing to look at but I'd have liked to see maybe a lower spec version to replace the current LG 5K but maybe LG are working on that, similar to the 4K display refresh. 

 

Love the idea of multiple users in TvOS, dark mode in iOS looks great also. Will be interesting to see what uptake they get with a dedicated Watch App Store, I'm not convinced this will take off but that may be because we don't have access to LTE watches which I think would greatly increase the possible app use cases.

 

Catalyst will likely bring a lot of iPad games to Mac would be my first guess but will be interesting to see how many developers make the move to multiple platforms.

 

All in all I thought there was some pretty cool stuff announced today and I look forward to drooling over a Mac Pro when I next get to an Apple store.

Was there any indication that Catalina will be the MacOS that kills 32 bit apps ?

I keep getting reminders for apps I am unlikely to replace / upgrade or probably will not be upgraded by devs. When it happens I will probably set up a VM for an older OS or create a partition on an external drive with the last 32 bit friendly OS.

The latest version of macOS will be the first to not support 32-bit applications at all, with macOS 10.14 Mojave the last to do so.

On another forum someone pointed out that the entry-level iMac Pro has the same number of cores, the same amount of RAM, four times the SSD space, a similar GPU, and of course that huge display... for US$1k less than the Mac Pro. It makes you wonder where that money is actually going...

Do the lower specced models have the same power supply and motherboard?  That might be where - the possible upgradeability that affords

That Mac Pro looks like my cheese grater... Doesn't look like Jony Ive's work!

 

Did anyone from here attend the event?

Catalina is the killer for 32bit apps. It is a shame since many developers haven't yep updated their applications e.g uTorrent.

Fully spec'd it will cost more than a brand new car.

 

And even though cars live in a more hostile environment, they have a far better warranty, backup, support, parts supply....

I expect a lot of devs will start the update process now that they have a beta version of the OS. It’s not just 32bit apps that need updating, often I’ve had apps that don’t handle major MacOS updates without changes.

Not watched the video... so was there any mention of "Books" ?

 

Books has to be one of the crappiest bits of software that Apple has ever released.

 

Try editing meta data, the only way to can modify anything is by putting it into list mode and editing it like a spreadsheet .

I quite like how the audience audibly balked at the cost of the hinge for the monitor - US$999. The monitor doesnt come with a hinge or a vesa bracket (US$199).

 

They do produce good kit, but an entry level workstation for US$12k ex tax. For high end video production sure, but does make you wonder about the size of the market.

 

Unless this is now a 'made in america' mac?

I'm thinking it's made in the US since there weren't any leaks.
