Apple last released an upgrade the MAC PRO in 2013 and it was a beautiful machine for heavy users. The machine could easily handle heavy task be it video editing or programming. The hardware performed so well, that people even today use it for stuff like video editing. But as technology is getting better Mac Pro users need an upgrade to level themselves up. And to their favours, Apple did announce an upgrade to the old Mac Pro back in 2017. Now, we have a confirmation that the product is arriving next year in 2019. Earlier speculations were being made that the new Mac Pro could launch at the hardware event this fall which is typically reserved for MacBook announcements.
“We want to be transparent and communicate openly with our pro community so we want them to know that the Mac Pro is a 2019 product. It’s not something for this year,” Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac hardware product marketing, told TechCrunch.
Apple understands that people are waiting for the new Mac Pro to launch. As a result, the company wants to make sure its potential customers exactly know when the product is coming out. Apple wants to update its users where exactly the new Mac Pro stands in their product pipeline.
Tom Boger even added “We know that there’s a lot of customers today that are making purchase decisions on the iMac Pro and whether or not they should wait for the Mac Pro”.
Apple with the new Mac Pro might be planning to make it modular. This will give easy access to the customers to swap out RAM and Graphics. This will give a greater flexibility to the customer to customize their machine up to some extent according to themselves. “As we said a year ago working on modular was inherently a modular system and in looking at our customers and their workflows obviously that’s a real need for our customers and that’s the direction we’re going,” Boger said in the interview.
Speculations are also being made that the new Mac Pro might one of the first devices from Apple that ships with the ARM-based processor. This comes as a part of Apple’s shift from Intel Processors. This is still a possibility. The Mac Pro is expected to impress the customers as the update comes out after almost 6 years.
