Apple's announcements at WWDC were skewed heavily toward its Mac line, while also providing a first glimpse of the latest version of its iOS mobile operating system.
Perhaps the biggest news of the show was a redesigned 15.4-inch
MacBook Pro that takes some design cues from the
MacBook Air line. It boasts a 2,880x1,800-pixel resolution Retina Display screen, an HDMI port (an Apple first), USB 3.0, discrete Nvidia graphics, and the requisite Intel Ivy Bridge CPU, and Thunderbolt connections. However, starting at a whopping $2,199, this one is strictly for those with deep pockets.

Apple also unveiled
iOS 6, the next version of the company's mobile operating system, which includes 200 new updates, as well as upgrades to Siri. iOS 6 comes with more personalization options, allowing users to turn on a do-not-disturb mode, as well as respond to phone calls with a set message, and set VIP status to individuals whose e-mails come through as an alert.

Apple also unveiled a new in-house 3D Maps app built entirely from the ground floor up. The 3D option isn't turned on by default but can easily be switched on by the user via a large button logically dubbed 3D.
