New Mac Mini Gives Hint On How 'Modular Mac Pro 2019' Will Look Like
One of the Apple products that’s expected to come next year is the Mac Pro. In fact, tech enthusiasts and fans alike are excited for it because not only has it been a long time since the Cupertino-based tech company released a new model, it was also “delayed” – initial reports suggested it will come in 2018.
So, what new rumor we have about the Mac Pro 2019? Well, this time around, a recently published report predicts what the ‘modular’ Mac Pro will be by taking hits from the newly launched Mac mini.
Like The Mac Mini 2018?
When the Mac Pro 2019 come, it will be different from the current Mac Pro. As a matter of fact, back in 2017, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller mentioned that they’re “completely rethinking the Mac Pro”.
Aside from that, he also mentions the keyword “modular” which suggests that it will feature a modular design/feature/system. This has also been mentioned by Apple’s Vice President of Hardware Engineering John Ternus.
Modular design is a design pattern that is built around the idea of autonomous modular components that can be independently created, easily configured and reconfigured into different systems. Take for example the Mac Pro. You can pack it full of storage and graphics cards.
With the current Mac mini, one of its highlighted features is its four USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports. This port is the latest version of Thunderbolt and features the same the design as the familiar USB-C connector. It is capable of transferring multiple types of data, not just serial data to storage devices.
Basically, the modular Mac Pro 2019 is also expected to be like the Mac mini. It will act as one system to which you can add what you need.
When Is It Coming?
As already mentioned, the Mac Pro is expected to come next year. This has been confirmed by Apple’s Senior Director of Mac Hardware Product Marketing Tom Boger back in April 2018:
“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,” and added, “It’s not something for this year.”
As for what month, reports are suggesting it will be in late 2019. Whether this is true or not, it’s hard to say.
