Apple could be on the verge of announcing its long-awaited Mac Pro redesign with modular component design, at least according to sources at Bloomberg.
The device has been in the works for a number of years now, with Apple telling developers in 2018 that a refresh was just around the corner.
Still, more than a year after that promise, the Mac Pro is nowhere to be seen, and users who rely on tech for work are naturally becoming impatient.
New information given to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, suggests that Apple has “internally weighed previewing a new version of the high-end Mac Pro” at June’s developer conference, though it’s still up in the air as to whether the new device will see the light of day.
The company is reportedly working on a modular Mac Pro aimed at its professional user base, giving them the ability to easily upgrade and add components to the device as and when necessary.
A television production studio, for example, could add additional RAM or CPU to their Mac during intensive rendering tasks, or a photographer could add additional peripherals that talk to one another and take advantage of the Mac Pro’s impressive specs.
The company hopes that the Mac Pro will allow for new innovations in virtual reality and in cinematography, with the firm putting together a Pro Workflow Team of senior designers and technicians to bring the new Mac Pro to reality.
Previous rumors suggest that Apple is working on a new Apple-branded display to sit next to the Mac Pro and indeed the Mac mini, which was overhauled at the end of 2018. The new screen will be 31.6 inches with a 6K resolution and feature “outstanding picture quality”.
Whilst there is no concrete proof of the new Mac Pro just yet, Apple did promise it would launch the device in 2019.
