The Mac Pro hasn’t seen a revamp since 2013, and has fallen into obsolescence as Apple focuses more on their phone lines as well as alternative computers like the MacBook and iMac. New information suggests that we’ll still have a little while to wait, with a 2019 Mac Pro launch anticipated.
Apple has now confirmed in an interview with TechCrunch that we’ll see a 2019 Mac Pro – provided the release date doesn’t get adjusted, that is. We’ve known that Apple was taking a different approach with the 2019 Mac Pro since back in 2017 when the company said that they were “completely rethinking” the design and function of the Mac Pro. Marketing chief Phil Schiller was looking to wow consumers with something brand new, which is why it has been so long since we saw a revamp of the popular computer.
Tom Boger, the senior director of the Mac hardware product marketing told TechCrunch that “we want to be transparent and communicate openly with our pro community so we want them to know that the Mac Pro is a 2019 product. It’s not something for this year…In addition to transparency for pro customers on an individual basis, there’s also a larger fiscal reasoning behind it.”
