Apple has updated its 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models, with 8th-generation Intel Core processors, in order to make them the most advanced MacBooks ever. With the new update and features, Apple plans to make the MacBook even more ideal for professionals and content creators.

The new 15-inch MacBook Pro now features a faster more powerful 8th-generation 6 core Intel Core processor, which the company claims can deliver 70 percent faster performance. The 13-inch MacBook Pro, on the other hand, comes with an 8th-generation quad-core Intel Core processor, which is said to perform twice as fast as the standard variant. Apple is also giving users more flexibility by allowing them to add 2TB SSD on the 13-inch model, and 4TB SSD on the 15-inch variant. Additionally, there is also an option to add 32GB of memory on the 15-inch MacBook Pro.

In India, Apple will be pricing the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the 15-inch MacBook Pro at Rs 149,990 and Rs 199,990 respectively. Both laptops will go on sale through Apple authorized resellers later this month.

Besides that, the two models also come Retina displays that feature 500 nits of brightness and support for the P3 wide color gamut. There is also support for True Tone technology that can deliver a more natural viewing experience for designer and editors.

Apple has also updated the MacBooks with its third-generation quieter keyboard, and a new Apple T2 chip for security. With the T2 Chip, Apple can deliver an enhanced security system with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage. It also brings “Hey Siri”, which enables users to simply call up Siri using voice.
