Exactly a year after Apple called a bunch of reporters to its headquarters to talk about the future of its professional-level Macs, the company is once again putting its stake in the ground. In an interview with TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino, several Apple executives have laid out the thinking behind the as-yet-unannounced Mac Pro, which is expected to debut in 2019.
What’s more interesting than the Mac Pro’s existence, however, is the approach Apple is taking to building it: bringing in actual pro users to see their workflows and figure out how to best accommodate them. It’s a side of Apple that, publicly anyway, we’ve rarely seen.
But, as you might expect from Apple, details on this new Mac Pro are still being kept tightly under wraps. But there are some tea leaves we can read based on Apple’s previous and current forays into the pro-level Mac market.
