Just earlier today, Apple has officially unveiled the newly refreshed version of its MacBook Pro notebooks with Touch Bar which feature several performance and security improvements.

In the case of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, there's now up to 8th generation Intel quad-core Core i5 and Core i7 processors to be had, and up to 16 GB of memory. The 15-inch version, meanwhile, has a six-core CPU, up to 32GB of RAM and up to 4TB of SSD storage. This means you can now summon Siri by simply barking at your machine, if you have absolutely no shame whatsoever.

The new MacBook Pro includes support for up to 32GB of memory, an improved keyboard for quieter typing and will also be able to compile code faster. The company says that altogether it's enough for a huge increase in performance: up to 70-percent faster, in fact, on the updated 15-inch MacBook Pro. Graphics are courtesy of Intel Iris Plus 655, with 128 MB of eDRAM.

The simply named Blackmagic eGPU costs $699 and comes equipped with Radeon Pro 580 graphics clocked at 1,200MHz.

Pricing and Availability: The new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID, a 2.3GHz 4-Core Processor, 256GB Storage, and 8GB of RAM starts at $1799. And with up to a 2TB SSD on the 13-inch model and up to a 4TB SSD on the 15-inch, MacBook Pro gives customers the flexibility to work with large asset libraries and projects wherever they go. And while there's a long list of potential devices coming our way, Kuo reaffirmed his March report that that the Apple Watch Series 4 will come in two variations with bigger screens, one with a 1.57-inch display and another with a 1.78-inch display. The company is making a couple of significant-ish changes to the MacBook Pro, while the existing design intact.

Additionally, Kuo said Apple may release a new low-priced laptop, similar to the MacBook Air, but likely rebranded in a new way.

For this reason, we chose to sift through all the information available and compile a list of some of the rumored new features that will be debuting on the upcoming Apple Watch Series 4.
