Apple on Thursday updated its MacBook Pro lineup with faster core processor, larger memory, and better security features. The new MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar with 8th gen Intel core processors with 6-core on the 15-inch model while 4-core on the 13-inch model. The latest processors bring up to 70% faster performance on the 15-inch model whereas the 13-inch model now has two times faster performance.

The updated 13-inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar will be available for price starting at Rs 149,900 and Rs 199,900 respectively. The new devices will be available at select Apple authorised sellers.

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 said that the Apple T2 chip, first introduced in the iMac Pro, will provide better system security and also bring voice assistant “Hey Siri” to the Mac for the first time.
