Looks like that 2013 Mac Pro is gonna make it six years without an update 🙄

It's possible that the 2019 Mac Pro is going to be introduced in the same keynote that Apple announces a transition to ARM 🤨

I think we can be certain Apple has been planning ARM Macs a long way back. But I think we need to thank MS for nudging them closer to such a possibility with the Surface.

At least such a team in touch with heavy Pro users would see how awful the new tbMBP is, though, right? Right?!

which is probably the reason they haven't updated it since the launch. they've been working on ARM as a priority

Do you think the ARM thing has to be a transition? Or could they maintain two architectures for macOS? (Maybe with an extended role for the T1/T2 chips?)

There's not going to be a new Mac Pro.

If Apple does transition to ARM, I expect that it would be a lengthy transition, starting first with the MacBook and slowly moving down the line. It would probably take years for ARM to make it to a machine like the Mac Pro.

That was my first thought! But man do you really think they could have a Xeon Class ARM ready by 2019???

Maybe that’s why it’s so late - it’s xARMeons in it (doubt it, worth it to ruminate on)

If that's the case, then I'm not so worried about having to cope with a transition to ARM any more.

Wouldn’t that be hysterical if it couldn’t keep up with an Intel Xeon? I don’t think there is ever a world in which Apple’s first desktop class ARM processors outclass an Intel Xeon. The worst part is that I can totally see them treating the Mac Pro like that.

So if they did put it in the pipeline last year, it takes them whole two years to get it out. They’re again trying to blow people away with some innovative design, but most pros would be perfectly happy with commodity dual CPU Xeon board, as long as there is enough RAM & ports.
