Apple’s new Mac Pro will be “completely rethought” featuring a modular design that can accommodate high-end CPUs.
Speaking to the press last year, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Phil Schiller said: “We are in the process of what we call “completely rethinking the Mac Pro.” We’re working on it. We have a team working hard on it right now, and we want to architect it so that we can keep it fresh with regular improvements, and we’re committed to making it our highest-end, high-throughput desktop system, designed for our demanding pro customers.”
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
Apple also took the opportunity to discuss work on their accompanying “new high-end pro display.”
TechCrunch notes how Apple claims to be hiring a Pro Workflow Team to better understand the needs of their pro customer base.
We’re getting a much much much deeper understanding of our pro customers and their workflows and really understanding not only where the state of the art is today but where the state of the art is going and all of that is really informing the work that we’re doing on the Mac Pro and we’re working really really hard on it.
