Apple Updates MacBook Pro With Faster Performance, New Pro Features

Apple Updates MacBook Pro With Faster Performance, New Pro Features

The update is slightly more than an expected specifications improvement for Apple's popular "Pro" laptops.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro is getting a 6-core, 8th generation Intel Core processor, while the 13-inch version now has a quad-core from the same manufacturer.

Apple has also introduced "Hey Siri" to the MacBook Pro as part of the udate.

"The latest-generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we've ever made", Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice-president of worldwide marketing, said in a statement. Both have more storage than before: The 15-inch model can go up to a four-terabyte solid-state drive, while the smaller model maxes out at two terabytes. However, as reported by The Verge, Apple claims the updated keyboard design only enables quieter typing and is not meant to solve any of the previously reported issues.

Already the developer's favorite notebook, the MacBook Pro 2018 is created to compile code faster and run multiple virtual machines and test environments easier than before. And if that power isn't enough, users are given the option to upgrade to the Intel i9-8950HK processor for AED 1680.

Processor (13inch): Quad-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors up to 2.7 GHz with Turbo. Paired with a processor running memory type DDR4 up to 32GB. The GPU that comes with the default configuration is the AMD Radeon Pro 550X with 4GB GDDR5, and with AED 420, you will be able to upgrade to the faster Radeon Pro 560X GPU. According to Apple, the new keyboard will be quieter.

No one can deny how Apple has included the most impressive specs into its latest notebook.

Of course, those fans would have the funds ready for the purchase, because these new MacBook Pros don't come cheap. The portable computers are more powerful than ever and feature a quieter keyboard. With this chip, MacBook Pro will deliver enhanced system security with support for secure boot and on-the-fly-encrypted storage, and also brings "Hey Siri" to the Mac for the first time.

Apple isn't one for giving anyone a heads up on when it's going to launch new products, unless there's a big stage event involved, and given there are always rumours circulating about hardware refreshes, it's hard to tell when something real will arrive.
