Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More
Jul 13 2018
Apple cites that the 8th-generation Intel Core processor in these laptops will be "ideal for manipulating large data sets, performing complex simulations, creating multi-track audio projects or doing advanced image processing or film editing".
It's been rumored for several months that Apple will release three new iPhone models at its annual September event, but if the most recent claims prove true, there will be a whole lot more in store than usual. What is your estimated delivery time?
For those who want to go all out, they can choose to maximize the specifications of the Core i7 variant for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with 16GB RAM and 2TB solid state drive for RM 15,264. That, according to Apple, has been some of the most intense feedback the company has gotten over the new keyboards. The 15-inch model gets the new 6-core, 8th generation i7 and i9 Intel chips with turbo boosts up to 4.8Ghz. Apple's website doesn't address the new keyboard's performance or whether the issues experienced with earlier models have been resolved.
Apple fans will be glad to hear about the updatedMac Mini, which is a cult favorite. The 2018 MacBook Pros support up to 32GB of RAM, and they're running Intel eighth-generation Core processors.
"The latest-generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we've ever made", Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice-president of worldwide marketing, said in a statement.
Apple has faced criticism recently for its lack of processor updates on the MacBook Pro line despite most of its Windows PC competitors upgrading their respective models.
The Apple Watch could soon receive on of its biggest design changes since launch, with a report indicating both models of the Series 4 smartwatch will come with larger displays.
This new third-generation keyboard wasn't created to solve those issues, Apple says.
A research note from reliable Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo of KGI Securities published Thursday indicates there will be some upgrades this fall, though Apple may replace the MacBook Air with a "low-cost" MacBook model, 9 to 5 Mac reported. Built-in I/O connections drive a Thunderbolt 3 display, support multiple accessories, and charge your MacBook Pro at the same time. The difference in travel between the old and new models is 1.3mm and 0.7mm, which is pretty significant.
