In a big surprise, Apple has announced its 2018 MacBook Pro lineup. The update includes the ability to order a six-core processor, 32GB of RAM, and more.

Back in June, Apple invited much of the tech world to the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). In what has become a common theme in recent years, Apple elected not to announce new hardware products during the five-day event. Instead, it decided to refresh its MacBook Pro lineup on a quiet Thursday in the middle of July.

As Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, explains:

The latest generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we’ve ever made. Now with 8th-generation 6-core processors, up to 32GB of system memory, up to 4TB of super fast SSD storage, new True Tone technology in its Retina display and Touch Bar, the Apple T2 chip for enhanced security and a third-generation quieter keyboard packed into its thin and light aluminum design with all-day battery life, it’s the best notebook for pro users.

Here are highlights about both the newly revised 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models:

15-inch

  • 6-core Intel Core i7 and Core i9 processors up to 2.9 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.8 GHz
  • Up to 32GB of DDR4 memory
  • Powerful Radeon Pro discrete graphics with 4GB of video memory in every configuration
  • Up to 4TB of SSD storage
  • True Tone display technology
  • Apple T2 Chip
  • Touch Bar and Touch ID

13-inch

  • Quad-core Intel Core i5 and i7 processors up to 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5 GHz and double the eDRAM
  • Intel Iris Plus integrated graphics 655 with 128MB of eDRAM
  • Up to 2TB of SSD storage
  • True Tone display technology
  • Apple T2 Chip
  • Touch Bar and Touch ID

You can order an all-new MacBook Pro from the Apple website beginning today, July 12. It will be exciting to see how some of these new features hold up – mainly, things like the “all-day battery life” and the new True Tone display tech.
