Although this year there will be no new desktop Macs, Apple does plan to in the future to continue to develop.
Writes that director Tim Cook in a message on an internal Apple forum, that it has been recognised by TechCrunch.
Apple recently presented a new version of its MacBook Pro laptop, but dropped the iMac, Mac Pro and Mac Mini alone. Several Apple followers have speculated that Apple has no interest in making desktops.
“As we enter our teams in doubt, then I can be clear: there are great desktops on the schedule. There nobody needs to worry about,” writes Cook. He gives no further details about the plans of Apple, but says that the company is it important to use computers to make that the best performance can deliver.
The Mac Pro, the most powerful desktop from Apple, received in december 2013 a redesign. Since then, Apple has, however, the machine will not be updated. Apple sells the Mac Pro, including three-year-old chip, a higher europrijs than in the introduction. That probably has to do with the stronger dollar.
The Mac Mini was since 2014 not renewed. The iMac was the last Apple desktop upgrade, in October 2015. It was, however, a small internal renewal. The external design of the iMac dates back from 2012 and versions with 5K-screen since 2014 offered.
On the Apple forum lets Cook also know why he chose last week to be present at a meeting between leaders from the tech industry and the next Us president, Donald Trump. According to the ceo, it is important to be present at such discussions and always in consultation with governments.
Cook gives, inter alia, privacy, security, education, human rights and the environment as topics where Apple say want to do.
“Personally, I’m never very successful on the sidelines to stand,” writes Cook. “How these issues affect is in the arena. So whether in this country or the European Union or China or South America, we involve us.”
Trump has, in the past, critical comments on various tech, including Apple. The businessman thought that Apple would have had to cooperate in attempts by the FBI to the iPhone of a terrorist to hack. The company wanted to not do this, because thereby the security of all iPhone users would be weakened.
