The Apple Watch may also get a noteworthy upgrade, as Kuo believes Apple will introduce larger screens for both its models.

As mentioned in our previous report, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can now be obtained with up to quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7. Both the 13-inch and 15in MacBook Pros with Touch Bar will now come equipped with the latest eighth-generation Intel Core i5, i7 and i9 processors, bringing them into line with competition from Windows PC manufacturers such as Huawei, Dell and others.

The MacBook Pro 15-inch and 13-inch model also feature dynamic stereo speakers and Thunderbolt 3 that will enable data transfer and connecting up to two 5K displays or four external GPUs.

Along with the new MacBook Pros, Cupertino is launching new, official leather sleeves for the devices.

Apple announced exciting new features for its Apple TV set-top box.

Trump fires first salvo in trade war versus China
Chinese companies have started turning away from USA soybean suppliers and looking to other sources for agricultural products. Trump has taken an aggressive stance on trade, fulfilling a campaign promise. "It's only China", he added.

Another frustration pro Mac users have been having recently is that the product cycle has seemed to keep stretching, with Apple taking increasingly long between product updates. It's worth noting that such is Kuo's reputation, he could say Apple will invent a dildo with FaceTime and we'd probably take his word for it. Most notably, Apple has not fully changed the design of the laptops' keyboards, which have drawn serious complaints from consumers who find them unreliable.

So we've all just been blindsided by the fact Apple has just unveiled a new MacBook Pro, promising it to be faster and packed with even more features than before.

The Retina display on MacBook Pro is now the best Mac notebook display ever.

Lastly, the new MacBook Pros come with Apple's third-generation of butterfly switch keyboard that promises to be quieter. As for storage, the 15-inch MacBook Pro comes with up to a 4TB SSD, while the 13-inch model comes with up to a 2TB SSD.

A few of the more interesting excerpts regarding the new MacBook Pro keyboard can be viewed below. With the T2 Chip, Apple can deliver an enhanced security system with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage. True Tone is a nice feature that matches the color temperature of your display to the color temperature of your surroundings, thanks to an embedded light sensor. Rather than having to hit a keyboard combination to summon Apple's assistant, you'll be able to call out for her on your MacBook Pro, just as you can with an iPhone, iPad, or HomePod.
