Let's start with the little guys. The two costlier units will go on sale around September 21, but the cheaper model will wait until November 2 because Apple wants to give the costlier units some exclusive time in the sun, Maldonado says.

But more importantly, the new MacBook Pros come with an improved keyboard. Yep, Apple is actually offering a Core i9-equipped variant. You can expect 6 cores, 12 threads, 2.9 GHz base and 4.8 GHz of Turbo Boost frequency. Apple claims a 70% performance boost over the previous generation. Upgrading to 32GB RAM instead of 16GB costs an extra $400, while opting for the 4TB of super-fast PCIe SSD over the base storage will cost an incredible $3200! It comes with up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and carries powerful Radeon Pro graphics.

That's not a bad upgrade, and brings the price to $3,099. There are purportedly chip upgrades arriving across the MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, and (at last) the Mac Mini ranges.

Aside from more power, the updated machines also gain the True Tone colour control system from Apple's iPads, which uses light sensors to adjust the colour temperature of the display to best match the light in your environment.

But that's not all. Apple has some new MacBook Pro leather sleeves to go with the notebook, too, in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue, and Black.

Police said there were no indications that Crenshaw was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident. Coronado told investigators he stopped to ask Crenshaw for directions before he jumped up and stabbed him.


There are some more interesting updates in there though. 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.

"The Blackmagic eGPU features a Radeon Pro 580 graphics processor that delivers stunning graphics and incredible computational performance", Blackmagic says.

Otherwise, it's MacBook Pro as we have known it. Thunderbolt 3 via USB-C, support for up to two 5K displays or up to four external GPUs, and a sleek aluminum unibody design.

And now to the not-so-fun part - the pricing.

As mentioned in our previous report, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can now be obtained with up to quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7.
