Apple MacBook Pro Lineup with Intel 8th-Gen CPUs
Apple today revived two new models of the MacBook Pro with tons of updates, including Intel 8th-Gen Intel Core processors, up to 32 GB of memory and SSD storage up to 4 TB. The refreshed 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models are available today through selected Apple retail stores and through Apple’s website.
This is also the first time that True Tone technology, as seen on the iPad and iPhone, reaches the company’s notebooks. This feature uses the device’s sensors to adjust the colour and intensity of the viewfinder, creating a more natural view and adapted to the ambient light of the place. All new models also have the Touch Bar located just above the keyboard.

- Intel Core i5 and i7 up to 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5 GHz

Aimed at consumer critics, the keyboards also received an update, being this the third generation of keyboards with the butterfly mechanism. The great promise is that they will be quieter, though the company has not committed to solving the problems reported by users. You will need to wait for the analysis to know how it will behave.
These are also the first MacBooks supported to trigger the Siri virtual assistant using the “Hey, Siri” voice command. Apple explains that this and other features of notebooks, such as the Touch Bar, are made possible by the Apple T2 chip.
Prices start at $ 1,799 for the 13-inch model and $ 2,399 for the 15-inch model, which may increase depending on the configurations. A bigger screen model with configurations come out for $ 6,699.
Apple has also announced leather sleeves for the new MacBook Pro models with three colour options namely Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and Black.
