The new MacBook Pro "butterfly" keyboard is likely designed for better durability

Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

Apple surprised its fans on Thursday morning with the quiet announcement of the new MacBook Pro models. Apple will likely announce a new iWatch, Mac Mini, Macbook Air, Mac Pro, iPad Pro and three different iphones this fall.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro features, among others, a quad-core processor and up to 2TB of SSD storage. That's right, Apple just pulled the plug on the 2015 MacBook Pro, which happened to be my favorite system in Apple's lineup. They are a lot faster with 8th-generation Core processors, and the 15-inch model supports up to 32GB of RAM and up to a 4TB SSD.

Apple says if you buy a Mac or iPad Pro, you can get a pair of Beats Solo3 "in new Beats Pop Collection colours", while also save 20% off AppleCare for Mac and iPad Pro. In addition, the Blackmagic eGPU supports Metal graphics technology from Apple, which provides near-direct access to the GPU for maximizing graphics and compute performance with games and applications. It comes in an integrated design that brings high-end desktop class graphics processing to MacBook Pro for professional video workflows, 3D games and immersive VR.

For those who hate the newest - and now only - Macbook Pro line, thanks to its lack of ports, annoying and flawed butterfly keyboard, and gimmicky Touch Bar; this discontinuation of the 2015 model is Apple's way of saying too bad, this is just the way things are now. There aren't many details available, but previous rumors have suggested that Apple may be upgrading the MacBook Air. According to Kuo, the smaller 38mm model will jump from a 1.5-inch display to a 1.57-inch one, while the 42mm model will now feature a 1.78-inch display, rather than a 1.65-inch screen.

Along with the new MacBook Pros, Cupertino is launching new, official leather sleeves for the devices. The MacBook Pro models come with Touch Bar feature as well, which was introduced back in 2016 when these were launched. The difference in travel between the old and new models is 1.3mm and 0.7mm, which is pretty significant.

The new notebooks also support up to 32 GB of RAM and include a True Tone display and Touch Bar.

Currently, Apple has a few 2015 MacBook Pro models listed in its online clearance section, but it's likely that Apple will not have more to sell after those are gone.
