13in MacBook Pro gets Magic Keyboard


Apple has released an updated 13in MacBook Pro with the Magic Keyboard and twice as much storage in standard configurations.

Standard SSD capacities on the updated 13in MacBook Pro range from 256GB to 1TB. Build to order configurations go up to 4TB.

Other changes to Apple's popular notebook include 10th-generation Intel quad-core processors, said to improve graphics performance by as much as 80% as well as supporting the full 6K resolution on the Pro Display XDR.

Up to 16GB of faster 3733MHz memory is standard in some configurations, with 32GB as an option.

The usual MacBook Pro features are still present, including the retina display, touch bar, touch ID, force-touch multi-touch trackpad, stereo speakers, T2 security chip, and "all-day" battery life. The 13in MacBook Pro comes in silver or space grey.

Today we're adding the new Magic Keyboard, doubling the standard storage, and boosting performance, making the 13in MacBook Pro an even better value for our customers," said Apple's senior director of Mac and iPad product marketing Tom Boger.

"With these updates, our entire notebook lineup features the Magic Keyboard for the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook, offers twice the standard storage than before, and delivers even more performance."

Prices start at $1,999, or $1,849 for education customers. Orders can be placed immediately, with deliveries to customers and authorised resellers starting later this week.
