Apple is back again with their updates for the MacBook. Today, Apple announced that it will be bringing new updates for MacBook Pro. The update is specific for the processor and few design glitches. The new update will not be addressing all the problems which are encountered by the users but it surely will improve their experience of using their MacBook Pros. At the WWDC, Apple announced a new Mojave version for their 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pros. However, it lacked a design touch. But, Apple has taken care of it.
With the new update, the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro will have the high processing power and better keyboard design. One of the major issues with the high-end MacBook Pro with Touch Bar model was that they were outdated in terms of processing power. Apple has said that the 15-inch MacBook Pro will have at least a 70% increase in the processing power and the 13-inch will see nearly double processing power than before. But, the new update will be available only for the MacBook Pro with Touch Bars. Other MacBook Pro and Air model were not spoken of regarding the new update.
MacBook Pro Newer Models
The MacBook Pro with Touch Bars come with a high-end processor and other specs. The new models look similar to that of the last year model but they have a huge hardware change in them. The new model will have an Intel i7 or i9 6 core processor. The processor will be clocked at 2.9GHz and can be turbo boosted to 4.8GHz which is pretty massive. Along with that, it will have 4TB space of memory and 32GB DDR4 memory.
Since the laptop hardware is increased tremendously, the battery power is also increased by 7.7 watts per hour. Hence, the battery life will remain nearly the same as that of the old MacBooks. Apple will be releasing A 13-inch version too with a little less hardware specification. It will have a quadcore i7 or i9 clocked at 2.5GHz. The new 15-inch laptop is said to be priced around $6,699 with all the high-end specs. A base model will be available for $2,399. The 13-inch model will be priced at $1,799.
Along with the hardware advancement, the new MacBook Pro will have more features. For example, the display is made True Tone. This will allow it to adapt to the colour temperature of the room. It will be able to change its colour temperature of the screen. Along with that, the Touch Bar will also support the True Tone feature. Users can now invoke the digital assistance – Siri by simply calling out “Hey Siri” without using any of the key combinations.
Apple is also introducing a leather cover for the keyboards to protect it. Many users have reported that their keyboard was damaged with little sand or dust particles. The cost of getting the keyboard replaced is very high hence user felt a lot of money being wasted. However, Apple has tackled the issue by releasing a new 4 years keyboard repair program. They also said that only a few users faced the issue hence the program will cover them.
Apple is focusing hard to improve its MacBook for the users. Apple rolled out iMac Pro in December which attracted a lot of users. Along with that, Mac was highlighted as a tool to create 3D animations of Virus, pollution level and so on. Hence, it allowed the users and researchers to use them desktop well to their needs. With the demos, Apple was trying tp prove that the MacBook is capable to work in different ecosystems easily.
In the recently concluded WWDC, Apple also said that iOS apps will be making an entry in the Mac market. Hence, Apple is trying to improve its MacBook. And, with the launch of newer MacBook 2018 models, Apple is improving on its hardware specifications too. All this only proves that Apple is well committed to make MacBook look and feel professional for the users.
