Apple launches faster processors on MacBook Pro

Apple launches faster processors on MacBook Pro

While many might have requested a new keyboard design that's harder to incapacitate with specks of dust and easier to fix, Apple told The Verge that those issues "have only affected a tiny, tiny fraction of its user base". Then join our Team! Updates for Apple's other Macs, as well as iPads and iPhones are expected later in the year. But sometimes, a product release doesn't warrant such a big show.

Along with the new MacBook Pros, Cupertino is launching new, official leather sleeves for the devices.

Kuo also reckons that the MacBook Pro and iMacs will get a bit of a tweak, notably with eighth-gen Intel Coffee Lake processors. In fact, if you are running DaVinci Resolve 15 you can expect increased performance for editing with more real time effects, color corrections with more nodes and ResolveFX such as film grain, light rays, blurs and more. It also includes four Thunderbolt 3 ports, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, 720p FaceTime camera, stereo speakers, three microphones, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

It's not a huge deal, but I'm also going to miss seeing MacBooks with a MagSafe power adapter, which helped prevent the older 15-inch model from being tugged off of a desk by accident. It features an Intel Iris Plus integrated graphics 655 paired with 128MB of eDRAM. The discrete graphics options are AMD Radeon Pro 555X with 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM and Radeon Pro 560X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory.

The current generation of MacBook Pro models has been controversial since it was introduced in late 2016.

A German court chose to allow former Catalonian leader Carles Puigdemont's extradition to Spain for misuse of public funds. Puigdemont hailed the decision as a victory, tweeting "we have defeated the central lie of the (Spanish) state".

Kuo predicted that Apple, in addition to launching three new iPhone models, plans to update almost its entire Mac and MacBook line-up this fall.

Apart from the new CPUs, bigger batteries are no doubt the biggest upgrade for this year.

It comes with Apple's own T2 system on chip for security features, plus a True Tone Retina display that adjust the white balance based on the ambient lighting and viewing circumstances. The feature "Hey Siri" is also available on the MacBook Pro for the first 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.

Only the 13in and 15in MacBook Pros with Touch Bar have been updated, leaving the model without a Touch Bar unchanged, along with the smaller MacBook and iMac.
