  • Apple and Blackmagic designed this eGPU to turbocharge MacBook Pros

There are several new configurations for both the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar model. Meanwhile the quad-core processor on the MacBook Pro 13-inch model is claimed to provide up to two times faster performance.

At least for MacBook Pro users, the wait for new products is over now, although the 2018 release of the MacBook Pro 13 and 15 might let down some Mac-fans with high-expectations. "The T2 handles solid-state storage controller tasks and on-the-fly disk encryption, and it allows the 15" MacBook Pro to house SSDs as large as 4 TB and the 13" model to stuff in as much as 2 TB of NAND. Also, storage can reach up to 2TB of PCIe NVMe SSD, but RAM remains limited to 16GB of LPDDR3-2133. The difference is enough that one can buy another 15-inch MacBook Pro for the same money.

Alongside the new notebooks, Apple launched something interesting as well.

With the introduction of the 2016 MacBook Pro, Apple eschewed all of the previous ports and power connections found on the power-oriented laptop lineup in favor of two-to-four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports.

For one, it's apparently the first eGPU to support Thunderbolt 3 displays like LG's Apple-approved 5K Monitor.

An analyst says the new model's disappointing sales could lead to the phone being cancelled - with production stopping as soon as this summer.

Along with the new MacBook Pros, Cupertino is launching new, official leather sleeves for the devices. If they have the money to spend, they can finally get their hands on a MacBook Pro which can easily handle their intensive workload without breaking a sweat. That's a privilege reserved for the 15-inch models.

He also called back to his three iPhones prediction, which suggested that Apple will show off an updated iPhone X with a 5.8in OLED display, a bigger 6.5in iPhone X Plus, and a 6.1in LCD display-equipped mid-range take on the iPhone X. According to Apple, this new generation of keyboard is quieter, but presumably the company didn't just revert to the first-generation design and has retained some of the added feel that makes you forget you're typing on keys with extremely short travel.

The MacBook Pro's Retina display features 500 nits of brightness, support for P3 wide colour gamut, now also has True Tone display, making it the best display on a Mac.
