Apple FINALLY updates 13″ MacBook Pro!

by birtanpublished on March 29, 2021

Tim Cook you pulled a fast one on us okay I didn't get much of a heads-up for this this is the one morning I decided to sleep in and now I miss the lodge but yeah Apple just updated the 13-inch MacBook Pro that's right 13-inch we know for sure now it's not a 14 inch and overall there's some good updates here but for the most part I think this is going to be underwhelming because I know there was a lot of hype leading up to this MacBook refresh and there's a lot of stuff you guys were hoping that was gonna happen it feels like the 16 inch MacBook Pro got a complete makeover back last year but this thing just got a

Minor bump but let's begin alright so this is why you should have believed me last month when I said do not buy a 13-inch MacBook Pro right now we knew that there was some type of upgrade coming in May we just didn't know it would be on Star Wars day which is very soon we thought it would be in the middle of the month but hey this is kind of minor anyway so obviously the magic keyboard has returned so you have the Escape key in the inverted T arrow keys on this design as well the touch ID button separated from the touch bar and of course the butterfly keys are

Officially gone as we expected there was no way Apple was gonna introduce a MacBook Pro refresh like this at Worldwide Developers Conference because they don't want to talk about the butterfly keyboard they just want to quietly kill it off so that now the magic keyboard is standard across MacBook Air and both MacBook Pros they also doubled the default storage which is in all the headlines but it's really not that impressive when you know that the MacBook Pro used to start at 128 gigs by default on a $1300 device which was insulting but yeah I guess they've

Doubled it now to 256 which is good but I kind of over do you know they should have done that a while ago and also some models have the new 10th generation Intel processors which should allow for some big CPU in graphics boosts but notice I did say some which I also find kind of disappointing the 1200 in $1500 configurations of the MacBook Pro are still shipping with the 8th generation Intel CPUs so there is some performance boosts here especially on those higher tier configurations but definitely not too much on the cheaper end those seem to just be storage doubles and the magic

Keyboard redesign and stuff like that also the wish of killing off the 2 Thunderbolt 3 port models has been because yet once again still the 1,300 and $1500 configurations of the MacBook Pro still have two Thunderbolt three ports on one side and if you want to get four Thunderbolt three ports on a 13-inch MacBook Pro you gotta buy the $1,800 configuration and also if you want to appreciate some of the new speed improvements on the 10th generation Intel CPUs you also got to spend eighteen hundred dollars or more they also have better maxed out

Configurations now so the 13-inch MacBook Pro is now capable of 32 gigs of ram in up to 4 terabytes of storage which given the MacBook is so like that is pretty impressive but not something we haven't seen before the MacBook Pro just not quite in this form factor other disappointing things that we thought we might see in the 13-inch MacBook Pro is there doesn't seem to be any mention of the studio quality microphones we got on the 16 inch MacBook Pro and there's also no update on the speaker system it appears that it's the exact same speakers that were on the last 13-inch

MacBook Pro so if you were hoping for a big overhaul there I'm sorry and yeah the display has not changed at all which I was kind of worried about I think I brought that up in previous videos that it doesn't sound like there was going to be a screen overhaul with this update even though we all really wanted it because we saw the 16 inch MacBook Pro you know get a little bit bigger so we figured why not bring that to the smaller model but it sounds like they just wanted the bigger MacBook to get bigger they didn't really care that much about the smaller macbook and the bezels

Appear to be the same size as well so basically no changes to the screen and of course no changes to that webcam but at this point I don't know why you guys expect anything to happen with the webcams we should just be grateful they have them at all and it wouldn't shock me if Apple decided to lower it to 144p potato quality just for the sake of its a webcam who cares I don't know about you guys but it also sounded a little bit disappointing that despite all of these upgraded configurations you still max out at a quad-core for the 13 inch MacBook Pro which is probably still

Really fast and impressive for a device this size but when we're kind of growing accustomed to seeing MacBook Pros with six cores and eight cores and IMAX with six cores and eight cores seeing a MacBook Pro that's well over $2,000 still max out at a quad-core it's like really just four but neither way it's supposed to offer eighty percent improvement in graphics which is quite substantial and up to 4.5 gigahertz speeds with turbo Bustan which I'm sure is fast and I'm sure you're gonna get lots of channels that buy this thing and compared to the

Last gen and see some noticeable speed improvements I'm not gonna be one of them though it's the same design as before just with an updated magic keyboard and I'm interested in getting a MacBook Pro later this year but preferably when the 10th didn't CPUs come to the 16 inch MacBook Pro so I'm not gonna be buying this thing but I don't worry about it I'm sure some people will and the updated graphics and CPU performance does mean that these MacBook Pros can now plug into the pro display XDR and support them at a full 6k resolution so if some of you out

There had Pro displays but wanted to use them with your tiny compact MacBooks I guess you now have that option at herbalife also appears to be the same on the 13-inch MacBook Pro so sorry no upgrades there and bizarrely still no Wi-Fi 6 compatibility if you go to the wireless section for this laptop they're coming out nearly halfway through 2020 and there's still not rockin Wi-Fi 6 support which I find a little bit bizarre hopefully we get that on the 16 inch MacBook Pro whenever they decide to update that with the 10th generation intel chips but yeah that's pretty much

It like I said it's kind of underwhelming there were a lot of upgrades we thought we were gonna get with this thing that we didn't and I can see why Apple decided to just randomly drop it on a Monday because it's not terribly exciting I don't think I'm gonna make any more videos on it other than this one so if you guys had some wishes or you guys think I'm being too hard on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro please feel free to hit me up on Twitter join my discord and we can chat more about this very set and refresh over there this is your a position here and

Give me some more warning next time I need it a little bit better than its dropping in one hour take care guys
