A Bloomberg report on Wednesday indicated Apple is mulling the possibility of previewing its redesigned modular Mac Pro computer at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
Apple has said it is working on a high-end high-throughput modular Mac Pro for its pro user base that will be easily upgradable and will feature components for the most system intensive tasks.
According to sources who spoke to well-connected Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, Apple has “internally weighed previewing a new version of the high-end Mac Pro” at this year’s WWDC, although no firm decision appears to have been made.
Apple executives Craig Federighi and Phil Schiller have been quoted as saying the company is committed to creating a Mac Pro that will be the highest-end desktop system with abilities for high-end cinema and Virtual Reality production. A “Pro Workflow Team” has been assembled to tailor Apple’s products to professional users.
Rumors earlier this week indicated Apple will be releasing a 31.6-inch Apple-branded 6K resolution monitor. The display will boast new Mini LED-like backlighting.
Mention of the new Mac Pro was included in an article on Apple’s “Marzipan” initiative, which will see Apple offer developers the ability to build an app once and have it work on both the iOS and macOS platforms.
