On yesterday's WWDC 2012 keynote, Apple presented a few new products that are going to be available this year. Two of the most interesting are definitely the new MacBook Pro notebook and the anticipated iOS 6. The notebook really seems to be a great new product by Apple, with its high-res Retina 15.4-inch Retina display, with mind-blowing 2.880 x 1.800 pixel resolution. Optical unit (CD-DVD) has been removed, making the new MacBook Pro lighter then its precursor and with 1.8 cm (0.70 inches) it got even slimmer.

Notebook's hardware will match its looks, making it more then capable to run the latest and most resource consuming professional sound and video editing, 3D modeling and similar software, and of course all the latest games. The new MacBook Pro will also be rocking improved speakers, with a starting price of $2199 USD (probably 2200 EUR)  for a basic model with a 256 GB SSD storage and $2799 USD (probably 2800 EUR) for a 768GB SSD, 16 GB RAM, 2.7 GHz i7 Quad-core top model.

One of the most anticipated updates, was certainly iOS 6, with its 200 new features and tweaks, among them, a whole new navigation maps and improved voice controlled assistant Siri. You can now talk to infamous Siri in 15 languages, she will now be able to update you with the latest sport results and launch apps. One of the more important news is a new partnership with car manufacturers, who will mount a special Siri button on the Car's steering wheels. Lovely Siri will also be available for the iPad.

As already mentioned, the iOS 6 will be rocking the new navigation maps, capable of 3D browsing on iPad and turn-by-turn navigation on iPhone with all the needed traffic info. The new maps are going to replace the default Google maps, the new Apple's map provider is said to be TomTom.

Last but certainly not the least, the new Mac OS X Mountain Lion. It's coming in July and you will be able to upgrade it for $20 USD, which does really sound like a fair price. You can read more about the new Mac OS X Moutain Lion here. The Apple fans must have been pleased with this one I would say, let's now wait for the new iPhone 5 until September. Meanwhile, for all the latest iPhone 5 rumors follow and/or contribute to the topic here.
