Mac Pro Update To Come ‘Next Year,’ Says Apple CEO

Posted on Jun 13 2012 - 5:35am by Editorial Staff

With all the excitement of the latest notebook updates as well as OS X Mountain Lion and iOS 6 news, Apple quietly updated its Mac Pro lineup. CEO Tim Cook is saying that more extensive updates won’t happen until “later next year,” reports MacRumors. Apple’s Mac Pro costs between $2,499 and $3,799, depending on which model the customer chooses.

“The specs for the ‘new’ Mac Pro had hardly changed, except for a tiny, inconsequential processor clock bump,” Hertzfeld wrote. “Still no Thunderbolt, still no USB 3.0, no SATA III or RAM speed improvements. It seems like it’s stuck in time in 2010. The only thing that’s still high-end about it is the bloated price.”

According to MacRumors, a guy named Franz sent an email to Apple, over on which CEO Tim posted the reply on the Facebook Page:


Thanks for your email. Our Pro customers like you are really important to us. Although we didn’t have a chance to talk about a new Mac Pro at today’s event, don’t worry as we’re working on something really great for later next year. We also updated the current model today.

We’ve been continuing to update Final Cut Pro X with revolutionary pro features like industry leading multi-cam support and we just updated Aperture with incredible new image adjustment features.

We also announced a MacBook Pro with a Retina Display that is a great solution for many pros.
