Apple Announces New 27-Inch iMac And 15-Inch MacBook Pro Ahead Of WWDC

Two new hardware updates.


Apple's got a pair of hardware updates in the pipeline and it's not waiting until WWDC to unveil them. The company announced a new 15-inch MacBook Pro on Tuesday morning, and a new 27-inch iMac as well.

Expected updates both — thanks to a report on MacG, the new machines flesh out Apple's Mac portfolio bringing updated innards to the 15-inch MacBook Pro and adding a new lower priced to the company's iMac lineup. Overlooked in Apple's March MacBook refresh, the 15-inch MacBook Pro today joins the 12-inch MacBook and the 13-inch MacBook Pro in offering the company's Force Touch trackpad.

Coming as it does ahead of Apple's annual World Wide Developers Conference in June, the release of these new Macs suggests that the company is once again clearing the decks of incremental hardware announcements in order to focus WWDC on bigger fare: the next versions of the next versions of iOS and OS X and a new Apple TV and associated app store.
