Phil Schiller has lifted the lid on the new Mac Pro

But, as you already know, we'd suggest everyone wait for the coming Mac Pro, which will land sometime in 2018.

Apple spilled the beans by inviting a handful of writers to its Mac Product Realization Lab in Cupertino where they met with Phil Schiller, Craig Federighi, and John Ternus who is the vice president responsible for Mac hardware engineering.

Apple recently convened a small group of journalists at its headquarters to inform them that the Mac Pro, Apple's powerful trashcan-shaped desktop computer will live.

In the meantime, we'll see an upgraded version of the iMac later this year-Apple says that many of its "pro" customers have moved to Apple's all-in-one, whether because it meets their needs better, it gets more regular updates, or both. They're also working on Apple-branded pro displays to go with them.

"As part of doing a new Mac Pro - it is, by definition, a modular system - we will be doing a Pro display as well", Schiller said, according to TechCrunch.

But don't get too excited just yet, because as Schiller pointed out, "you won't see any of these products this year".

What Apple is saying is that pro users who have been waiting for release something-or anything-new in the pro desktop space have to wait a little longer, but there's finally a light at the end of the tunnel. The next model up, which previously featured a hexa-core Intel Xeon CPU, now features an octa-core (8-core) Xeon E5 CPU, 16 GB of RAM, and dual AMD D700 GPUs boasting 6 GB of VRAM apiece for $3,999. "It's something we plan to keep on doing for a very long time".

I think we designed ourselves into a bit of a thermal corner, if you will.

It has been a while since Apple talked about the Mac mini.

Apple's refreshed Mac Pro offerings are now listed for sale via the Apple online storefront, however the top-tier octa-core model is, at least for the time being, listed as "currently unavailable".

As the years wore on, pro users fell out of love with the Mac Pro. "Some... it's the kind of system they wanted; others, it was not".

It has been a few years since the last version of the iMac released, with 2014's release bringing "Retina 5K" display at a resolution of 5120 x 2880 pixels. This is not a new model, not a new design, we're just going to update the configs.

The vast majority of computers Apple sells (80 percent) are notebooks, but the company still recognizes pro users who need a beefy desktop. That doesn't seem like enough to entice anyone to upgrade, let alone purchase the desktop instead of building their own PC, but at least it showed that Apple doesn't want to exit the desktop space entirely.
