A little over a month ago, Apple made a public statement about continuing their focus on professional customers. Inevitably, this made a number of analysts think the company had a Mac Pro update up their sleeves. The product has not seen an update since late-2013 so its definitely getting long in the tooth. Could a new Mac Pro be in the works? It certainly seemed like it.
Yesterday, Apple made a somewhat awkward announcement about the aging desktop and fans are mystified. The company stated a revamp is in the works, but will not arrive until 2018 or later. Essentially, they were apologizing for ignoring the product for so long… but followed up with a vague promise to improve it. This is certainly an odd behavior for a company which once thrived off the professional market.
