Apple MacBook Pro models updated with beefier processors and RAM

Adding an eGPU to the 13-inch MacBook Pro helps bridge the performance gap with the 15-inch models. Meanwhile the quad-core processor on the MacBook Pro 13-inch model is claimed to provide up to two times faster performance.

Apple could release new iPad Pro models that feature an edge-to-edge screen and Apple's facial recognition technology, FaceID.

When it comes to the 15-inch MacBook Pro, the base model features the 6-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7 together with 16GB DDR4-2400 RAM, AMD Radeon Pro 555X graphics with 4GB GDDR5 VRAM, 256GB solid state drive, and RM 9,999 price tag.

Apple says if you buy a Mac or iPad Pro, you can get a pair of Beats Solo3 "in new Beats Pop Collection colours", while also save 20% off AppleCare for Mac and iPad Pro.

Targeting editors, VFX artists and colorists - especially users of DaVinci Resolve and its all-in-one toolkit - Blackmagic Design said it has started shipping the Blackmagic eGPU, an external graphics processor for MacBook Pros designed in collaboration with (and available exclusively through) Apple. So today we might have a sliver of light to share with Mac fans about various new machines, plus information about purported new iPhones, iPads, Watches and more.

Microsoft will release a budget tablet at a price of $ 400

England World Cup team will be invited to 10 Downing Street
Despite the defeat, Southgate has helped restore some national pride in our football team. And I think we need to take full credit for that because we've changed that.

Cardi B gives birth to baby girl Kulture
Sources at the store said that Nicki told them to make the basket "as girly as possible". It will be great to see how the rap duo will raise their first baby together.

Another frustration pro Mac users have been having recently is that the product cycle has seemed to keep stretching, with Apple taking increasingly long between product updates. But this time around, Apple has one more surprise. Those Thunderbolt 3 connectors on the 13-inch and 15-inch models can support up to two 5K displays.

Apple has also put the new T2 chip from its iMac Pro into the MacBook Pro, which handles fingerprint scanning, the Touch Bar and other duties. There's also a revamped "third generation" keyboard that promises to be quieter and (hopefully) not a fragile.

An analyst says the new model's disappointing sales could lead to the phone being cancelled - with production stopping as soon as this summer. Mostly because it's thinner, helping MacBook Pro models be more slender.

In addition to the new notebooks, Apple introduced a leather sleeve for the MacBook Pro that is available in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue, and Black, which is similar to the leather sleeves available for the MacBook. A redesign will undoubtedly come along eventually-they always do.
