We got a preview of a new Apple TV Plus show called For All Mankind, which explores an alternate universe where the Soviets made it to the moon before the US.
A redesigned return to the cheese-grater Mac Pro can house some of the most powerful desktop components on the market and the new monitor is the brightest wide-gamut model at a peak 1,600 nits.
The Mac Pro supports up to two MPX modules which support Thunderbolt up to 500 watts of power draw.
Apple developed its own video accelerator to handle high-res professional video real-time rendering.
That's ... a lot.
Apple's new 32-inch display is intended to replace both reference and working displays for video editors. It's a true HDR 10-bit panel at 6K resolution that can hit 1,600 nits at peak brightness and sustained 1,000 nits. Because it must be named, the 6,016x2,284 resolution version is now "6K Retina." It's still about 215 ppi, though.
Apple increases the brightness by boosting the blue backlight and using local dimming.
Apple also made an overdesigned stand that you can buy for $1,000, but at least you can raise, lower, swivel and rotate the display.

Handoff between the HomePod and your iPhone -- think continuing music playback when you leave the house -- is now a thing.
Apple split its mobile operating systems into iOS (iPhone) and iPadOS so that it could take better advantage of the extra screen real estate on the iPad.
Apple significantly beefed up Files capabilities, turning it into a more standard file system, which enabled features like a download manager.
