Apple 'sorry' for bin-like Mac Pro, promises an upgrade is coming

Apple Will Ship A Pro iMac Later This Year

All in all, a maxed out Mac Pro machine with a 12-core processor, 64GB RAM, 1TB flash storage, and dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs will now cost $6,999 instead of $9,599.

Unfortunately, although the internals have been modified, Apple has chosen not to update the connectivity options, saving UBC and thunderbolt 3 tech for next year's "complete rethink". We all figured the company was giving up on the high-end machine and professional users who required all its power, but today it finally clears the air and confirms the Mac Pro's future.

Apple understands that this meaningful update (with negligible details) would elevate your heartbeat and make you crave the new Mac Pro this instant. "So there are many many things and people called pros, Pro workflows, so we should be careful not to oversimplify and say "Pros want this" or "don't want that"; it's much more complex than that".

The last incarnation of the Mac Pro was revealed nearly four years ago now, and it was dramatic in terms of a major redesign with a bold cylindrical form factor, although some referred to the machine as the "trashcan" Mac.

With respect to the forthcoming changes to the Mac Pro, Apple executives took some time to address the limitations of the current design.

Even when it launched, the Mac Pro wasn't as powerful as it could have been.

Apple's new-found transparency on the matter is an attempt to placate pro users who have been waiting for a meaningful update to the company's modular desktop system for more than three-years. And for that, we're sorry to disappoint customers who wanted that, and we've asked the team to go and re-architect and design something great for the future that those Mac Pro customers who want more expandability, more upgradability in the future.

Body of assassinated Kim Jong-nam is returned to North Korea
While the two suspects were arrested by the Malaysian authorities, suspicions of other North Korean agents' involvement remained. Airport CCTV footage shows them approaching Kim Jong-nam and apparently smearing his face with a piece of cloth.

Separately, the company revealed that it is releasing two upgraded configurations of the Mac Pro this week in the meanwhile.

Schiller added that the firm is "completely rethinking" the Mac Pro, which is probably a good thing, especially for professionals that aren't fans of computers that look like bins, and said that it will be launched alongside a separate pro display.

While Phil Schiller hesitated to say that the recent Mac Pro design was a mistake, he did seem to concede that the design was short-sighted.

Anyone holding out for Apple to innovate on the desktop will have to wait a little longer, but they can buy a faster Mac Pro in the short term. Schiller also said Apple is working on a new display for the device, which would fill a bizarrely empty slot in the company's lineup.

Frustration over Apple's lack of focus on its "pro" customers grew past year when Microsoft announced the Surface Studio, a 28-inch all-in-one Windows 10 PC aimed directly at creative professionals.

They told reporters at the meeting that one big problem with the previous model was that it was attempting a one-size-fits-all approach, even though users of the desktop line tend to be very diverse.
