Mac Pro production returns to China as Trump-Apple showdown tipped

Apple's much-vaunted US production of the last-generation Mac Pro won't continue with the new "cheese grater" model, it's been reported, despite increasing political pressure for American tech companies to shift manufacturing out of China. The Cupertino firm made headlines back in 2013 with its willingness to prioritize American production of the cylindrical Mac Pro, despite the costs involved.

The new Mac Pro isn’t even here yet, but Logic Pro X is ready

Apple's potent new Mac Pro isn't even on shelves yet, but the company can't help tease us with updates for some of the apps that'll make most use of the speedy workstation. Logic Pro X is among the first to get a preemptive Mac Pro update, as Apple sets out some of the ways software can be optimized to make the most of the new hardware.

It’s time for a Mac Pro Mini

It’s time for a Mac Pro Mini

Apple made a new Mac Pro, but not everybody is happy. The potent new computer is a total reset on its much-derided predecessor, instead reminiscent of the earlier Mac Pro models that developers had begun to reminisce over with rose-tinted glasses. Its replacement, though, has turned out to be a wake-up call.

New Mac Pro first look: Be careful what you wish for

New Mac Pro first look: Be careful what you wish for

Familiar, and yet new: the new 2019 Mac Pro is about as big a departure, generation to generation, as Apple computers get, but somehow it still feels comfortably familiar. Perhaps it's how it nods back to the old "cheese grater" aesthetic in the days before the trash can, or a more nebulous sense that Apple is finally, again, listening to its most ambitious users.

This is the new Mac Pro: Professionally modular, thermally sound

This is the new Mac Pro: Professionally modular, thermally sound

The Mac Pro is back, and it looks like a completely new piece of machinery. This device is both about simple, stark refinement on its outside and high-powered MacOS-based processing on its inside. It's sort of like the cheese grater aesthetic never went away - and it's back now with far more intense elements - and it's all modular! [UPDATE: And by that I mean it's largely modular, not ALL modular.]

Apple US manufacturing is back in the spotlight

Apple US manufacturing is back in the spotlight

Apple's Q1 2019 financial results are almost upon us, but first there's another chapter in the ongoing "why don't they make iPhones in the US?" saga. The Cupertino company published an in-depth piece into component manufacturing in the US today, trumpeting Apple's $60bn spend on American component suppliers and companies in 2018.

Apple may be overthinking the new Mac Pro

Apple may be overthinking the new Mac Pro

The new Mac Pro should be easy for Apple, and the fact that it isn't is making people worried. A modern workstation has a lot in common with a workstation a decade old, or two: the fastest components available in a form-factor that doesn't tie you down. If there's one thing we know about Apple, however, it's that if there's an easy way to do something, or an alternative way that could be considered more elegant, it has an uncontrollable desire to chase the latter. The recipe envisaged by some of the more vocal would-be Mac Pro buyers seems a lot more straightforward.

Apple “completely rethinking” modular Mac Pro plus Apple displays

The fears aren't true: Apple hasn't given up on pro users and the Mac Pro. It just made a mistake.
