MacBook Pro updated with 8th-gen Intel Core chipsets

In a research note, reported on by tech news site 9to5 Mac, Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities claimed that the Cupertino, California-based company's upgrades will include face recognition for iPads, bigger smart watches and long-awaited improvements for the Mac mini.

New Low-Priced Notebook. Apple is clearly anxious that Microsoft's new low-priced surface might be a good idea and Kuo believes Apple is designing a new low-priced notebook.

Only the 13in and 15in MacBook Pros with Touch Bar have been updated, leaving the model without a Touch Bar unchanged, along with the smaller MacBook and iMac. In India, the 13-inch model starts at Rs. 1,49,900 while the 15-inch model starts at Rs. 1,99,900 - both will be available via select Apple Authorised Resellers later this month. The MacBook Pro 13 gets two extra cores with Intel's Kaby Lake-R generation, so the i5 and i7 CPU's now have four cores instead of two while still supporting Hyper-Threading.

Apple on Thursday announced a refresh of its MacBook Pro, making it the "most advanced Mac notebook ever".

The Apple Watch could soon receive on of its biggest design changes since launch, with a report indicating both models of the Series 4 smartwatch will come with larger displays. On top of those weighty responsibilities, the T2 lets the new MacBook Pros handle "Hey Siri" invocations for the first time. The T2 does a lot more, most notably providing on-the-fly storage encryption and providing a secure boot process. This is something which was previously exclusive to 12-inch MacBook users, the Leather Sleeve. True Tone is a nice feature that matches the color temperature of your display to the color temperature of your surroundings, thanks to an embedded light sensor.

One report said the keyboard issue led to far more "warrantee events" in the 2016 models than in MacBook Pros from previous years. The second revision of the keyboard was meant to add more tactile feel, but also really increased the volume of noise-I always describe those keyboards as sounding "crunchy". But while the updated MacBooks have an "improved third-generation" keyboard that it promises will be quieter, the company has stayed committed to its key design.

That last tidbit could be annoying if you want to connect more than one monitor though, as you'll either have to use an adapter or buy one of the few monitors that connect via USB-C. Turbo Boost takes that up to 4.5GHz. A redesign will undoubtedly come along eventually-they always do.
