Apple, Inc. Admits to Mac Pro Design Flaws, Promises New Model Coming

Apple typically doesn't reveal anything about its future plans but with the Mac Pro not having seen an update in over 1,200 days, professional users had reached new levels of anxiety over the uncertain future of pro devices at Apple. However, it seems Apple is now reversing on this as well and will go back to making its own monitor. Both models have also been updated with dual AMD FirePro D500 and D700 GPUs, instead of the dual AMD FirePro D300 and D300 GPUs they've used since 2013, respectively.

Schiller said that they are going to design the new model without the touchscreen feature and concentrate on solving the now recurrent issues in the new model of Mac Pro and pro display which will not be available until next year. The company promises it has heard the complaints and it's pledging an all new Mac Pro in 2018. "So there are many many things and people called pros, Pro workflows, so we should be careful not to oversimplify and say "Pros want this" or "don't want that"; it's much more complex than that". Schiller said: "We made something bold that we thought would be great.and what we discovered is that it was great for some and not others - enough so, that we realised we had to take another path.and look for the next answer".

By previewing its plans in this way, Apple apparently chose, for the first time, not to "suffer in silence" any critical reactions it might receive for not updating its Macs over the course of the year.

As for Apple's long-forgotten Mac Mini, Apple said that the machine remains important to Apple, but the company didn't disclose any details about where it fits into Apple's product roadmap.


So what will the new Mac Pro be?

Apple has announced that it will update the Mac Pro with better specs this week and revealed that a completely redesigned Mac Pro and Pro Display are on the way.

Apple is also planning to upgrade the iMac All-in-One (AIO) desktop computer.

Apple also confirmed an all new Mac Pro and professional displays in the pipeline. But sadly, that was the only iteration of the CPU which launched and the shiny dustbin-shaped computer was forgotten by Apple.


This means that Apple is "completely rethinking" the Mac Pro and an all-new design for the desktop device is now in the works.

Based on Apple's uncharacteristically candid discussion about its pro desktop roadmap, you have three options if you're in the market for a new machine: Wait unti later this year for the new iMacs, wait for next year's new Mac Pro, or abandon ship and move to Windows.

The new Macs will boast an enhanced display, and will be released at some point next year, Schiller added.

"The current Mac Pro, as we've said a few times, was constrained thermally and it restricted our ability to upgrade it", he said.
