The iPad, for example, hasn't really had much of an update recently; the new iPad that made its debut this year ain't much special, and the iPad Pro of 2017 is decent but hardly a big redesign of its predecessors.
Here's the pick of the offers.
All new models are available to order today online and will be at Apple retail stores later this week. The 13-inch MacBook Pro can accommodate up to 8th-generation, quad-core Core i7 CPUs, Intel Iris Plus 655 graphics, 16GB of RAM, and 2TB of SSD storage. While many might have requested a new keyboard design that's harder to incapacitate with specks of dust and easier to fix, Apple told The Verge that those issues "have only affected a tiny, tiny fraction of its user base". The new devices are available for purchase right now, starting at $1,799 for the 13-inch model and $2,399 for the 15-inch model. Today, Blackmagic Design announced the Blackmagic eGPU, a high performance graphics processor for pro creative software made in tandem with Apple and created to amplify the MacBook Pro. Amid a slew of hardware upgrades - including support for 32GB of RAM - Apple also relayed that the new machines feature an "improved third-generation keyboard for quieter typing". The 15-inch model can be configured with up to 4 TB of SSD storage, while the 13-inch model is limited to a maximum of 2 TB. The aging MacBook Air is the only other option if you need legacy ports, and it's unclear how long that laptop will stick around.
The entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar didn't get an update, and neither did the thin-and-light MacBook nor the more low-priced MacBook Air. The Blackmagic eGPU comes with an AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics card, which is significantly more powerful than the Radeon RX 560x that's in the high-end 2018 MacBook Pro.
"That addresses one of the key complaints with the system and should make life a little easier for users who regularly bring their MacBooks into meetings - or worse yet, the library". Apple is also releasing a leather sleeve for its laptops coming in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and Black. Those Thunderbolt 3 connectors on the 13-inch and 15-inch models can support up to two 5K displays. According to Kuo, the smaller 38mm model will jump from a 1.5-inch display to a 1.57-inch one, while the 42mm model will now feature a 1.78-inch display, rather than a 1.65-inch screen.
