Hey Look, Apple Just Announced New MacBook Pros

13 July, 2018, 08:44 | Author: Vicki Mclaughlin
  • Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

Upgraded Apple Watch models with the first new redesign since it first launched in 2014. According to Apple, the 15-inch model is up to 70% faster and the 13-inch model two times faster than earlier models. It now can be configured with quad-core Intel chips. The MacBook Pro 13 gets two extra cores with Intel's Kaby Lake-R generation, so the i5 and i7 CPU's now have four cores instead of two while still supporting Hyper-Threading.

Student, teachers or other faculty can buy an Apple iPad Pro from $629 for the model sporting a 10.5-inch screen, or $779 for an iPad Pro carrying a 12.9-inch display. Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro feature True Tone display. In macOS Mojave, a new Dark Mode transforms the desktop with a dramatic new look that puts the focus on user content. Mostly because it's thinner, helping MacBook Pro models be more slender. It's worth noting that such is Kuo's reputation, he could say Apple will invent a dildo with FaceTime and we'd probably take his word for it.

FaceTime has got a major upgrade with Group chat.

As Apple updated its website with the newest additions to the Macbook Pro family, something just as noteworthy came to light. The 15-inch receives a six-core i9 capable of 4.8Ghz Turbo Boost mode, and up to 32GB of DDR4 memory.

Fire crews are expected to knock on about 5,000 doors during the heat wave , and they will offer residents a cooler place to stay. On Canada Day, daytime highs are forecast to reach the mid thirties with humidex values into the mid forties.

It might not be quite the powerhouse of the 15-inch version, but it's definitely a welcome step up over the previous-generation MacBook Pro.

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 panels still boast P3 wide color gamut and 500 nits of peak brightness.

Hoping Apple's refreshed MacBook Pro - just announced today - would include a keyboard that can't be damaged by a little dust? It also works as a docking hub for keyboards, mice, HDMI-connected displays or storage. The company really souped-up the specs of the latest Macbook Pro model, the one that debuted in 2016 with the controversial butterfly keyboard, 4 sole USB-C ports, and Touch Bar in place of the function keys.

Currently, Apple has a few 2015 MacBook Pro models listed in its online clearance section, but it's likely that Apple will not have more to sell after those are gone. The maximum amount of RAM available in the larger laptop has also been doubled to 32GB.
