Apple was rumoured to be refreshing all of its products, including Macs later this year. It turns out that the refreshes were tabled to come sooner, rather than later.
Apple today announced the MacBook Pro 2018 with 13 and 15-inch variants for power users and professionals. It isn’t a radical redesign to the chassis, users will still find the same 4 USB Type -C connectors on each side of the device, but the firm will be changing the internals.
The 15 inch MacBook Pro will come with a 6-core eighth generation Intel i7 or i9 processor with up to 32Gb of DDR4 RAM and up to 4TB of Storage.
The 13 inch-mode will get the same generation, but it will be quad-core i5 or i7 chips. The speeds will range from 2.78 GHz for the slowers 13-inch model to 4.8 GHz for the fastest 15 unch mode.
The battery is also bigger, but the battery life isn’t changing due to the larger power draw of Intel’s new processors.
The firm is also adding a True Tone display to these, the adaptive display that Apple ships with its iPad Pros. Hey, Siri will also make its appearance on the MacBook line for the first time.
Apple has also changed the keyboard to make it quieter but the firm has said nothing about the grain of sand issue, instead claiming that it affected only a minuscule proportion of their consumers.
The new MacBooks start from $1,799 for the 13-inch and $2,399 for the 15-inch.
