Apple recently had a small press conference with a few select journalists and talked a lot about the Mac. The company admitted that it had made a mistake with the design of the current Mac Pro and vowed to release a redesigned version.
Juli Clover reports for MacRumors:
Apple executives this week made an unusual and surprising announcement, detailing the company’s work on an entirely revamped high-end modular Mac Pro that’s set to be released sometime after 2017.
Apparently, the negative response to the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, which many complained was not oriented towards pro users, was a major factor. Apple saw a surge of orders for older MacBook Pros instead of the new model, and that, combined with the reaction to the LG 5K display and the “constant negativity” from professional users, led Apple to “double down on professional users.”
