New MacBook Pros announced by Apple but they're barely more than a refresh

A True Tone display, Core i9 configuration and voice-activation for Siri, this is the MacBook Pro for 2018.

New MacBook Pros have been quietly announced by Apple at a New York event this morning. During the event, Apple unveiled a refreshed line of its 13in and 15in MacBook Pro devices with new processors and a slew of tweaks to set them apart from their predecessors.

 

Those hoping for news on a new 12in MacBook or a revamped MacBook Air will be disappointed to hear that Apple had nothing to announce. Apple is also not making any changes to its entry-level 13in MacBook Pro model without Touch Bar – a sign it's probably also trying to quietly kill that off too.

Here's what's changed for both the 13in and 15in MacBook Pro 2018 models.

13in MacBook Pro 2018 update:

  • Quad-core Intel Core i5 or i7 processors at up to 2.7GHz with Turbo Boost to 4.5GHz
  • Intel Iris Plus 655 integrated graphics with 128MB of eDRAM
  • Up to 2TB of SSD storage
  • Third-gen butterfly keyboard
  • True Tone display and Touch Bar
  • Apple T2 chip for security, Touch Bar and Hey Siri integration

15in MacBook Pro 2018 update:

  • 6-core Intel Core i7 or Core i9 processor at up to 2.9GHz with Turbo Boost to 4.8GHz
  • Up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM
  • Radeon Pro discrete graphics with 4GB of video memory in every configuration
  • Up to 4TB SSD storage
  • Third-gen butterfly keyboard
  • True Tone display and Touch Bar
  • Apple T2 chip for security, Touch Bar and Hey Siri integration
