Apple Back To School sale: Free Beats headphones with Mac & iPad Pro

Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More

Failing that, it may just be time to bite the bullet and check out the 2018 MacBook Pros in the hope that this new third-generation butterfly keyboard is up to snuff.

The inclusion of top-end hardware and specifications are expected.

If, however, you are someone who was pricing up the older, more reliable, and certainly more port-laden 2015 MacBook Pro, then you're about to be very disappointed indeed because as part of today's lineup refresh, that Mac is no longer available to buy.

In April, the 13-inch MacBook Pros without touch bars had come under scrutiny, with some users reporting battery-related issues. "These are Apple's most powerful notebooks which they claim to be 70% more powerful for the 15" version and at least double the performance for the 13" model. The base frequency of these processors is about 2.9GHz, which can shoot up to 4.8 GHz under Turbo Boost mode.

"Meanwhile, the 13" version comes with a choice of Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with Intel Iris Plus graphics. For instance, if you bought your MacBook Pro 15 or 16 days ago, there's a good chance that the manager will let it go and treat it like a 14-day return. Now with True Tone technology, the display and Touch Bar deliver a more natural viewing experience for design and editing workflows, as well as everyday tasks like browsing the web and writing email. The new displays that these laptops sport, offer a dazzling 500 nits of peak brightness. The Touch bar and Touch ID are now a standard across all models.

According to a support document from Apple, all three displays will work with True Tone, just like the internal display.

The laptops are packing the new Apple T2 chip for enhanced security the laptops.

The company said that the Apple T2 chip, first introduced in the iMac Pro, will provide better system security and also bring voice assistant Siri to the Mac for the first time.
