New Leather Sleeves for MacBook Pro First introduced with MacBook, Apple leather sleeves are now available for the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and, for the first time, Black.
Editor's note: Apple says the new MacBook Pro keyboard does not address the problems experienced by some owners. This is because Apple and Blackmagic specially designed the enclosure with a single piece of aluminium and a special cooling system, which means the eGPU runs quietly at just 18 dB.
Apple has quietly taken the wraps off a brand new MacBook Pro for 2018. The 15-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,399 for the Core i7 variant while the Core i9 will set you back at least $2,799.
Apple delivered some much-needed updates to its highest-end MacBook Pros this morning. The 13-inch model will be powered with quad-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, which will make it twice as fast as the outgoing model.
Apple came under fire this year as more MacBook Pro owners complained that their butterfly switch keyboards were suffering from sticky keys. The new chip, T2, which is also installed in the iMac Pro, is capable of activating Siri, a voice assistant, by saying "Hey Siri". They are compatible with the 2016, 2017, and 2018 "Thunderbolt 3" MacBook Pro laptops. It isn't a radical redesign to the chassis, users will still find the same 4 USB Type -C connectors on each side of the device, but the firm will be changing the internals. Apple's butterfly keys are more hard to remove for cleaning than standard keys if the issue was caused by dust.
The new MacBook Pros finally have 8th gen Intel processors, incorporates the True Tone display from the iPad and iPhone, and a new keyboard. The 15-inch version, meanwhile, has a six-core CPU, up to 32GB of RAM and up to 4TB of SSD storage. The 12-inch MacBook also gets new sleeves in the same colors above for $149. That product, an external GPU, is based around a Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB of video memory. Apple had said it was not a safety issue and had offered worldwide free replacement for such batteries.
