System long overdue for refresh
Apple is planning to announce a next-generation Mac Pro -- or a replacement -- sometime this month, a source tells MacDailyNews. No other information has emerged, but the website claims that the source has been right about other Apple products in the past. It did correctly predict the renaming of iPhone OS to iOS, and prices for iCloud subscriptions.
The Mac Pro is typically considered long overdue for a refresh. The last major update took place in 2010; a 2012 specification bump was so minor that Apple quickly removed the "New" tag next to the product at the online Apple store. CEO Tim Cook has also promised new hardware sometime this year. If the company is planning a replacement, though, it's unclear what if anything would be different, beyond improved performance.
