2019 Mac Pro: A Quick Review On What To Expect Before Its Release
Expected to finally come this year after many years of waiting is the 2019 Mac Pro. We’ve heard a number of rumors, leaks and official talks about the desktop. Some of the details include that it will be a modular system or device and Apple is also releasing a new 31.6-inch Apple 6K3K display to match it up.
But what exactly can we expect from this device? Read on!
It Will Be One Hell Of A Device That Will Certainly Satisfy Pro Customers?
Back in 2017, Apple invited a very few people to a special meeting to discuss the future of the Mac Pro. Present at the meeting was Apple’s Senior Vice President of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller who said that they’re in they’re in the process of completely rethinking the Mac Pro. Part of their main objectives was to make the said device fresh with regular improvements and make it as their highest-end, high-throughput desktop system, designed for their demanding pro customers.
As for how powerful the Mac Pro 2019 will be or what amazing features it will be capable of, Schiller said that it will be a modular system. He believes that it is really important to create something great for their pro customers who want a Mac Pro modular system.
What about the shape? Will it feature the same design? At that time, Apple’s Senior Vice President of software engineering Craig Federigi said that they haven’t yet considered its design yet and even jokingly said that it could probably feature an octagon shape. Putting the jokes aside, their focus was to have an architecture that can deliver across a wide dynamic range of performance and that they can efficiently keep it up to date with the best technologies over the years.
Is There Still A Market For A New Mac Pro?
Given that the currently available Mac Pro was released back in 2013, many technological advancements have happened since its release. With this, we can probably safely say that Apple has to really make the 2019 Mac Pro stand out if it wants to stay relevant in this day and age.
For the Mac Pro 2019 to be successful or relevant, as noted by iMore, American iOS and web developer and co-founder of Tumblr Marco Arment suggests that the new Mac Pro needs to be the system without limits. This is all the CPU. All the GPU. All the memory. All the storage. All the IO.
When Is The New Mac Pro Coming?
It has been already confirmed by Apple Sr. Director of Mac Product Marketing Tom Boger that the new Mac Pro is a 2019 product. Even well-known Apple analyst Ming-chi Kuo predicted that this year, an “easy-to-upgrade” Mac Pro will launch in 2019. But when exactly in 2019 is it coming? The Cupertino-based tech company has certainly been tight-lipped about the specific announce and release date.
Amidst all the rumors, leaks, predictions and speculations, the most popular belief or the ideal scenario is that the 2019 Mac Pro will be announced at WWDC this June which is also the same month when the 2013 version debuted. However, the release date is another matter. Will be released after being announced or will it be made available in the holidays just like the currently available model?
