Apple lets you use AR to see what new Mac Pro would look like on your desk
Apple is allowing you to explore the newly announced $5,999 Mac Pro at home using AR on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Within its webpage on Apple.com promoting the new machine, Apple allows users to place the Mac Pro around their home using the power of augmented reality.
Mac Pro was announced on Monday at Apple’s highly anticipated WWDC conference. The machine, which pro users had been eagerly awaiting, is the most powerful Mac ever made. The powerhouse desktop is made with a stainless steel frame that’s designed for modularity.
At the heart of the new Mac is an Intel Xeon processor with 28 cores, with users able to take advantage of 6 memory slots allowing you to install up to 1.5 terabytes of system memory. It packs 8 PCI expansion slots, 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports and an audio jack.
