Apple updates MacBook Pro with faster performance and new features for pros

In a press release today, Apple announced updates to its MacBook Pro line of notebook computers. It features an Intel Iris Plus integrated graphics 655 paired with 128MB of eDRAM. It can be outfitted with up to 8th generation 6-core Intel Core i7 and Core i9 processors, and up to 32 GB of memory. The discrete graphics options are AMD Radeon Pro 555X with 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM and Radeon Pro 560X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. The 15-inch model can be configured with up to 4 TB of SSD storage, while the 13-inch model is limited to a maximum of 2 TB. Over time, though, Apple steadily improved the overall user experience on the Apple Watch. (AMD introduced the Radeon Pro 500 series in 2017 specifically for use in Apple products.) Blackmagic said the Radeon Pro 580 is equipped with 8GB of memory, a 256-bit memory bus width and a memory bandwidth of 217GB/s.

Two new smart watches are believed to be getting readied for launch with slightly larger displays. Apple is also including a T2 chip on the device that's capable of enabling the "Hey Siri" command for the first time ever on a Mac, so you no longer have to use the keyboard to access the personal assistant on your Mac. Apple had said it was not a safety issue and had offered worldwide free replacement for such batteries.

Despite those upgrades, consumers may be unhappy to hear that these new computers retain the basic Macbook's basic keyboard design - which has drawn three class-action lawsuits that claim it's faulty. Both new models are listed on the India site.

Judging from the imagery there are four USB-C ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack, but there's no telling how many of those ports support Thunderbolt 4. Updates for Apple's other Macs, as well as iPads and iPhones are expected later in the year. Apple has some new MacBook Pro leather sleeves to go with the notebook, too, in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue, and Black.

As mentioned in our previous report, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can now be obtained with up to quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7.

Prices here start at £1,749 and £2,349.
