Apple will Offer Major Mac Pro Update in 2013: Apple’s CEO Confirms
New York Times just notes that there is no any solid evidence to say that Apple is going to end manufacturing iMac and Mac Pro devices as much rumored earlier. The news paper also has a firm belief that Apple will introduce the updates of its desktop Macs, including both the iMac and the Mac Pro, sometimes likely in 2013.
Especially, Mac Pro fans are waiting for any major update of the said device because many years have been passed since last Mac Pro update, and recently released update is only a minor one in its nature.
The newspaper notes:
Many Apple observers also wonder if Apple thinks that desktop computers are dead, since not a word was said about the iMac and Mac Pro. An executive did assure me, however, that new models and new designs are under way, probably for release in 2013.
Notably, new improved Xeon E5 chips were released in March, but the new Mac Pro update launched today didn’t include them which is really astonishing for Mac Pro lovers and it leads to the rumors describing an end of Mac Pro lineup in near future.
Last year, Apple was struggling with the highly declined sales of Mac Pros since most of users were shifted towards Macbooks with boosted performance and it was being said that future of Mac Pro was looking dark. But today’s report from the New York Times assures that Apple will continue selling Mac Pros and will bring a major update to the device in 2013 at some appropriate time.
Susan, a reader of Macrumors just reveals an email he received from Apple CEO Tim Cook when he question Cook about the future of Mac Pro:
Our pro customers are really important to us…don’t worry as we’re working on something really great for later next year.
We think it is really good news for Mac Pro lovers who were almost disappointed about the future of device. Cook’s assurance of continuing offering Pros and even bringing a major update to the device next year is a great surprise for all techies who are the fans of desktop Macs.
