Apple today announced it has updated its entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro with the latest 8th-generation Intel Core quad-core processors for up to two times faster performance compared to the previous generation. The notebook now also features a Touch Bar with Touch ID, True Tone display, and the Apple T2 security chip.
Pricing continues to start at $1,299 in the United States, or $1,199 for qualifying students through Apple’s education store. The base configuration is equipped with a 1.4GHz quad‑core Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, and Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645 in Space Gray or Silver finishes.
This is the first update to the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro since June 2017 and likely corresponds with the mystery FCC filing uncovered by MacRumors last week. Apple also refreshed the MacBook Air today with a True Tone display and a lower starting price of $1,099, down from $1,199.
The updated notebook is available to order now.
