Apple may have refreshed its line of MacBook Airs and MacBook pros, as well as introduce the next-gen MacBook Pro with a Retina display, but iMac and Mac Pro updates were noticeably absent. The Mac Pro did get a very sneaky update after the event, but it was a very minor refresh, mainly due to the fact that Intel stopped producing the chips that the models used. David Pogue of the New York Times has heard that updates to both lines are coming.
There were some doubts raised over the future of the desktop models that Apple currently offers with such a heavy focus on notebooks, but Pogue was told by an Apple executive that updates to both models are coming: “An executive did assure me, however, that new models and new designs are under way, probably for release in 2013.”
A MacRumors reader has also shared an email he received from Tim Cook when questioned over the lack of a Mac Pro update. Tim Cook responded with the following: “Our pro customers are really important to us…don’t worry as we’re working on something really great for later next year.” There you have it. Updates are on the way, so you’ll just have to sit tight until next year for Apple to unveil the magic.
