This week Apple revealed that the company has started work to develop a new, modular Mac Pro and a new screen.

Holwerda writes that the Mac Pro's future was unclear, however, when users complained on the new Macbook decided Apple to pro-bet after all .
Macbook Pro sells certainly good – according to Apple itself, sales have gone up 20 percent – but many loud professional users have suggested that it is too weak, and not a regular pro computer. It lacks the ability to 32GB of RAM, and nowhere in Apple's product line today is a computer capable of really advanced tasks, such as helping developing VR applications.
That Apple saw orders for previous-generation MacBook Pro boost , problems with LG's Ultra Fine screen and "constant negativity" among professionals were things that finally got Apple to make a real pro-investment – a decision which probably been as late as the beginning of 2017.
According Holwerda explores Apple also the ability to develop new models of the Macbook Pro, without touch bar, and the ability to combine iPad Pro and Mac in different ways, for example using an iPad as a tablet to a Mac.
