Apple’s updated MacBook Pros are a long-awaited step in the right direction

This may be your last chance to snag a brand new one, so get them while they last! Today, Apple is launching the accessory for the entire MacBook Pro lineup in both 13 and 15-inch flavors.

Each product is expected to get upgraded chips, which many are speculating to be new Intel eigth-generation processors, while the iMac could see 'significant display-performance upgrades, ' according to 9to5Mac. The MacBook Pro 13 gets two extra cores with Intel's Kaby Lake-R generation, so the i5 and i7 CPU's now have four cores instead of two while still supporting Hyper-Threading. The new devices are available for purchase right now, starting at $1,799 for the 13-inch model and $2,399 for the 15-inch model.

The MacBook Pro models just introduced include faster processors and better displays, but the most important new feature might be the keyboard.

It's been rumored for several months that Apple will release three new iPhone models at its annual September event, but if the most recent claims prove true, there will be a whole lot more in store than usual. Ars' Samuel Axon found that the keys are quieter than those on previous MacBook Pros, and they have a less click-y feel that nods to those pre-2016 models.

Apple says its battery life estimates are unchanged. Apple was criticized by professionals for recent Mac upgrades, but it has since taken a renewed approach to professionals and has been praised for its newest announcements.

So we've all just been blindsided by the fact Apple has just unveiled a new MacBook Pro, promising it to be faster and packed with even more features than before.

It might not be quite the powerhouse of the 15-inch version, but it's definitely a welcome step up over the previous-generation MacBook Pro.

It also features the T2 SoC and True Tone Retina display.

Lastly, the new MacBook Pros come with Apple's third-generation of butterfly switch keyboard that promises to be quieter. The quartet also feature the Touch Bar interface and Touch ID authentication, enhanced with a dedicated secure enclave chip, the Apple T2. In addition to graphics and computational acceleration, the Blackmagic eGPU is also the ideal docking hub for connecting devices such as keyboards, mice, Thunderbolt monitors, big screen HDMI televisions, high speed storage and more. The 15-inch version, meanwhile, has a six-core CPU, up to 32GB of RAM and up to 4TB of SSD storage.
