Apple just discontinued the beloved 2015 MacBook Pro

Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

As ever there are two new models that are going to hit shop shelves, a 15-inch MacBook Pro and a 13-inch model. The 13-inch MacBook Pro, on the other hand, comes with an 8th-generation quad-core Intel Core processor, which is said to perform twice as fast as the standard variant. Previous rumors have suggested this machine could be a 12-inch MacBook, so Apple may be planning to expand the MacBook lineup with an additional low-priced option to replace the MacBook Air. The Core i7 models are clocked at 2.7 (4.5GHz with Turbo Boost) while the integrated Iris Plus 655 graphics receives a bump to 128MB eDRAM - double the amount from the previous models.

Editor's note: Apple says the new MacBook Pro keyboard does not address the problems experienced by some owners. Nonetheless, fans of the Mac mini may have something to look forward to in Apple's 2018 lineup of products. But while the updated MacBooks have an "improved third-generation" keyboard that it promises will be quieter, the company has stayed committed to its key design. As for customers that prefer to purchase these notebooks at Apple Authorized Resellers instead, they have to wait slightly longer as we don't have any exact on-ground release date for the time being. That's one complaint with the current MacBook Pro keyboards.

Here are the pictures Apple provided for the new laptops: Apple also launched new leather sleeves for MacBook Pro laptops. However, the new models still use a butterfly keyboard, and those who find them uncomfortable to type on will likely be sad to learn of the retirement of the only non-butterfly MacBook Pro option.


To be clear, it's the 15-inch model that will offer the highest-end specifications, as it historically always has.

The iLine isn't all that's being touched, Apple is updating the Mac line with chip updates as well as a new cheap Apple Notebook to replace the MacBook Air.

The MacBook Pro's Retina display features 500 nits of brightness, support for P3 wide colour gamut, now also has True Tone display, making it the best display on a Mac. However, you don't get a full size USB port or SD Card slot that the 2015 MacBook Pro had; you'll need to carry around dongles for certain peripherals. The quartet also feature the Touch Bar interface and Touch ID authentication, enhanced with a dedicated secure enclave chip, the Apple T2.
