Apple released a new update for the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, giving the laptops a performance boost. The Core i7 models are clocked at 2.7 (4.5GHz with Turbo Boost) while the integrated Iris Plus 655 graphics receives a bump to 128MB eDRAM - double the amount from the previous models. It now can be configured with quad-core Intel chips.
Created in partnership with film and broadcast company Blackmagic, the Blackmagic eGPU is a $699 powerhouse standalone unit that comprises an MD Radeon Pro 580 graphics card with 8GB of DDR5 RAM.
As ever there are two new models that are going to hit shop shelves, a 15-inch MacBook Pro and a 13-inch model. Over time, though, Apple steadily improved the overall user experience on the Apple Watch. But of course, Apple wasn't too harsh right out of the gate as it was selling the 2015 MacBook Pro alongside its pro lineup of notebooks. That said, previous Apple Watch models have had quite the thick frame around their displays, so if Apple manages to slim it down a bit, we're likely not looking at a device that will be noticeably bigger than its predecessors.
Inside, meanwhile, is the Apple T2 chip, which made its debut on the iMac Pro. Apple says the panel offers 500 nits of brightness and P3 wide color gamut support.
A second-generation T2 chip is in Touch Bar, which is used for encrypted storage, secure boot, and Siri.
In the wake of issues with recent-generation MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboards, Apple has also updated the keyboard of the new MacBook Pros to a new, quieter third-generation model.
Additionally, Kuo said Apple may release a new low-priced laptop, similar to the MacBook Air, but likely rebranded in a new way.
Familiar iOS apps, including News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home, are now available on the Mac for the first time. Both new models are listed on the India site.
The rest of the machines stay untouched, including the four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, battery life and screen resolution.
The smaller MacBook Pro starts at US$1,799 and the larger model at US$2,399. The 13-inch starts at $1,799, while the 15-inch starts from $2,399.
