Apple is delaying the release of a much-awaited Mac Pro upgrade. The company introduced a new $5k iMac Pro for its professional customers earlier this year, but those waiting for a new Mac Pro will have to wait a bit longer.
Apple executives confirmed the delay today, stating that the new Mac Pro is a 2019 product. In Apple’s defence, the company didn’t really confirm 2018 as the release year for the new product. But this time around, Apple is explicitly stating 2019 as the release year for the product. “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 executives said in an interview with TechCrunch.
Mac Pro is a much-awaited product for long-time, professional Mac customers. Although the new iMac Pro is the main high-end product of the year, many are waiting for a new Mac Pro as the new iMac Pro isn’t exactly affordable at $5,000.
