Apple Discontinues 2015 MacBook Pro Following 2018 Lineup Refresh

Anyone hoping for an update to the cheaper Macbook Pro models which don't have this divisive feature have not been updated. The company said in a news release that the 15-inch model, with a six-core i7 or i9 processor, is up to 70 per cent faster, while the 13-inch model is twice as fast with a quad-core i5 or i7. It can also be configured to up to 32GB of RAM and 4TB of SSD storage.

The updated 2018 MacBook Pros have the exact same dimensions as the previous models - just the internals have changed a bit. Apple said the third-generation butterfly keyboard on the new MacBook Pros will allow for quieter typing. Also shipping now are the $699 Blackmagic eGPU that can turn your MacBook into a VR-capable machine and the leather sleeves for it.

According to a support document from Apple, all three displays will work with True Tone, just like the internal display.

Both models now come with a True Tone display for a more natural viewing experience. First introduced on the iMac Pro, Apple insists the chip delivers, "enhanced system security with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage".

MacBook Pro has beautifully balanced, high-fidelity sound that takes listening to new levels with wide dynamic range and more bass for maximum boom.

macOS Mojave Coming this Fall This fall, MacBook Pro can be updated with macOS Mojave, the latest version of the world's most advanced desktop operating system, with new features inspired by pros but designed for everyone.

The Blackmagic eGPU features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3 ports, and one HDMI 2 port, which means you could use it as a docking station. Apple says it also now supports double the eDRAM, 16GB RAM max, and up to 2TB SSD. Apple's more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to leaving the world better than we found it.
