Apple Updates MacBook Pro Touch Bar Models With Faster Processors, 'Quieter' Keyboard

Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

In the wake of issues with recent-generation MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboards, Apple has also updated the keyboard of the new MacBook Pros to a new, quieter third-generation model.

The 13-inch gets quad-core i5 and i7 chips that turbo up to 4.5Ghz. This is something which was previously exclusive to 12-inch MacBook users, the Leather Sleeve. Other pricey upgrades include the 32 GB RAM and processor upgrades, although they are all six-core options on the 15-inch model.

The latest MacBook Pros also continue to pack 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports, which gives you awesome throughput and the ability to run multiple devices off of a single connector. Interestingly, consumers don't have to wait long to purchase them in Malaysia though as these new notebooks are available for order through Apple Malaysia's website. The MacBook Pro models come with Touch Bar feature as well, which was introduced back in 2016 when these were launched. The new MacBook Pro models, which Apple announced today via a simple press-release, are such a case. Customers running DaVinci Resolve 15 can expect increased performance for editing with more real time effects, color corrections with more nodes and spectacular ResolveFX such as film grain, light rays, blurs and more. 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.

An analyst says the new model's disappointing sales could lead to the phone being cancelled - with production stopping as soon as this summer. Arguably the most polarizing among these tweaks is the butterfly keyboard-the 2015 MacBook Pro predates that mechanism, making its traditional keyboard a preferred alternative for many users. The quartet also feature the Touch Bar interface and Touch ID authentication, enhanced with a dedicated secure enclave chip, the Apple T2.

Just when we thought the MacBook Pro was as good as it gets, Apple jumped right in and surprised as all with the new 2018 lineup that is capable of putting a lot of notebooks out there to shame.

The new Retina display with True Tone technology on the new MacBook Pro models is said to offer 500 nits of peak brightness and support for the P3 wide colour gamut.
