  • Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More

There is no major upgrade to the base 13-inch model, so if you were looking at that model, you may want to wait until later this year as Apple is rumored to be working on a cheaper 13-inch MacBook.

The keyboard now uses a new third-generation butterfly design which is said to be quieter than before.

Both the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros are getting Intel's latest chips, which boosts system performance up to twice the 2017 models, Apple said on Thursday.

On 12 July, Apple updated its flagship MacBook Pro line with screens 13 and 15 inches.

Best Mac notebook display ever now features True Tone technology for a more natural viewing experience. According to Apple, the new keyboard will be quieter. In addition, the coprocessor Apple T2, which acts as controller flash memory, microphones, speakers, camera, FaceTime, and is also responsible for security during booting and the fans of the cooling system allows you to activate Siri by voice command.

Apple has unveiled the new 2018 MacBook Pro models, which look very much the same as their predecessors because all of the changes are under the hood.

The new Pro is ideal for manipulating large data sets, performing complex simulations, creating multi-track audio projects or doing advanced image processing or film editing.

The Retina display on MacBook Pro is now the best Mac notebook display ever.

As with previous generations, the 15-inch MBP comes standard with Touch Bar. Apple's website doesn't address the new keyboard's performance or whether the issues experienced with earlier models have been resolved. Meanwhile, the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar moves from the quad-core CPUs to current-generation six-core i7 and i9 processors.

Just when we thought the MacBook Pro was as good as it gets, Apple jumped right in and surprised as all with the new 2018 lineup that is capable of putting a lot of notebooks out there to shame.

New MacBook Pro leather sleeves now available in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and Black. Prices for 15-inch model starts from 2 $ 399 (62 300 UAH).
