  • Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

Apple Watch - Apple is working on two new Apple Watch models for 2018 that will have bigger displays and enhanced heart rate detection features. Meanwhile the quad-core processor on the MacBook Pro 13-inch model is claimed to provide up to two times faster performance. Apple removed the mid-2015 15-inch Retina Macbook Pro model from its online store, officially killing off what some consider to be the best laptop ever made. The 15-inch variant, in particular, is aimed at pros as it is now available with up to 4TB storage, 32GB RAM, and a Core i7 or i9 processor featuring 6 physical cores. This is something which was previously exclusive to 12-inch MacBook users, the Leather Sleeve. Apple cites that the 8th-generation Intel Core processor in these laptops will be "ideal for manipulating large data sets, performing complex simulations, creating multi-track audio projects or doing advanced image processing or film editing". In addition to graphics and computational acceleration, the Blackmagic eGPU is also the flawless docking hub for connecting devices such as keyboards, mice, Thunderbolt monitors, big screen HDMI televisions, high speed storage and more. And while it's not a wholesale reinvention of this generation of MacBook Pro-Apple stuck with the previous body design for four years-it does address a few of the top complaints of MacBook Pro users. It is not clear if Apple will upgrade it to the new fangled electrickery. This makes the reliability of the keyboard in the new devices a critical matter. But this time around, Apple has one more surprise.

Additionally, Kuo said Apple may release a new low-priced laptop, similar to the MacBook Air, but likely rebranded in a new way. The company said in a press release that the 15-inch model is up to 70 percent faster, while the 13-inch model is twice as fast. The new MacBook Pros feature Apple's T2 chip, which debuted in the iMac Pro and adds "Hey Siri" support to the Mac.

Zlatko Dalic: Croatia have energy to exterminate England
In the end, neither Croatia nor England was expected to make it this deep into the tournament, but here they are and France is waiting.

While the MacBook Pros themselves haven't been redesigned, they offer more than just spec bumps. There's also a revamped "third generation" keyboard that promises to be quieter and (hopefully) not a fragile. True Tone is a nice feature that matches the color temperature of your display to the color temperature of your surroundings, thanks to an embedded light sensor.
