In the exact same breath as its iMac Pro availability press launch was uttered, Apple slipped in a reminder to the world that an overhaul to its Mac Pro desktop is still in growth. Oh, and that home made skilled show is in the works, too.
Unfortunately, Apple didn’t take the alternative to expose any new data relating to both product – merely that it hasn’t forgot about it. And, if you happen to learn between the strains a bit, it is clear Apple doesn’t need you to overlook, both. Here’s what the company said particularly:
“In addition to the new iMac Pro, Apple is engaged on a totally redesigned, next-generation Mac Pro architected for professional clients who want the highest efficiency, high-throughput system in a modular, upgradeable design, in addition to a brand new high-end professional show.”
Yes, we already knew all this, however the undeniable fact that Apple has even introduced consideration again to this product in growth – a transfer virtually unprecedented for the firm earlier than this yr – is telling of its place on computing.
In computing, Apple’s on a picture marketing campaign
Apple has clearly modified its tune in regards to public information of merchandise it has but to launch, particularly in fields the place its picture is rising tarnished. Apple has been extensively criticized for its remedy – or lack thereof – of the Mac model over the previous few years.
