News: updated iMacs in June, no updates for Mac Pro users, iCloud overhead, and more!

Rumours are saying that updated iMacs with Ivy Bridge processors are set to launch in June, according to suppliers. The report also claims Apple will be using their new anti-glare glass on the new iMac, and there's also word about updated MacBook Pro models due at the end of the second quarter. As with all rumours, these should be taken with the requisite grain of salt — doubly so, seeing as the source MacRumors cites doesn't have a particularly good track record. Meanwhile, Mac Pro users are still stuck without any word on updates. At best, it was thought that the Mac Pro would receive an update when updated processors are released, but that date has already come and gone. Intel's Xeon E5 processors are already available, and yet nothing from Apple. Here's hoping the online store will be quietly update in the coming weeks.
