Hey Apple fanatics, here are some big stuff from the recently concluded WWDC2012. Apple rolled out its new MacBook Pro with retina display, the latest version of its iPhone/iPad’s software – the iOS6, and the Mountain Lion.

It includes up to a 2.7 GHz Core i7 processor, up to 16 GB of 1600 MHz RAM, Nvidia GeForce GT 650M Kepler graphics, up to 768 GB of flash storage and up to 7 hours of battery life. It also has ports for SD, HDMI, USB 3.0 on either side, two Thunderbolt ports, a headphone jack and a slimmer MagSafe charging port. The laptop also has an HD camera for FaceTime and dual microphones. The new MacBook Pro with Retina display starts at $2,199 and can fetch as much as $3,749 with added options.
The iOS 6 – a major update with a lot of your requested features like the Apple’s Map Service, Siri integration, Facebook integration, Call reminder and a “Do Not Disturb” mode for iPhone, FaceTime chat for iPad, Mail app supports for photos and video attachments, and more. iOS 6 also includes better guides for blind people and children with autism.
