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!

macOS 10.15 will let Apple Watch do more than just unlock Macs
