Posted October 12, 2018 06:38:03 Apple’s first new Macs will be on sale in the U.S. this week, but it’s not yet clear how the company will handle the transition to the new Apple TV operating system.
In the coming months, Apple plans to launch a few new Mac models that will be built on the platform to complement the new hardware.
According to Macworld, the first new Apple Mac model to arrive this week will be the Apple MacBook Pro.
Macworld has a list of specs for the new Mac, including a 13-inch Retina display, Thunderbolt 3 port, and Apple’s latest Lightning-to-USB 3.1 cable.
The new MacBook Pro will feature a 13.3-inch display with a pixel density of up to 921 ppi, the highest of any laptop currently available in the United States.
The 13-incher has a 10.1-inch screen, but only weighs 3.4 pounds.
Macworld notes that the new model has a “freshest display ever on a Mac” and that it will also offer an “unparalleled” 1.7GHz Intel Core i7 processor.
There are also a few changes to the Mac lineup that Macworld describes as a “new mix of MacBooks.”
The company has also confirmed that the 13-in.
and 15-in MacBook Pros will ship with the same processor and RAM as the 13.1 model, while the 15-inchers will come with a “special edition” version of Intel’s Xeon processor.
Macworld says the new 13- and 15.5-inch MacBook Pros with Intel Xeon processors will arrive in the third quarter of 2018.
Apple has not yet confirmed the exact launch date for the Xeon models, but Macworld says it expects to announce the “new version” of the Xeon processors during the third-quarter.
The Xeon models are expected to be available for purchase in October, which is when the MacBook Pros are expected, but we’ll likely hear more about the new Xeon models in the coming weeks.
