Apple CEO Tim Cook has answered an Apple customer’s email about the lack of a much-waited MacBook Pro refresh, saying that not only does he love the Mac, the company is very committed to the product as well. He told the customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, to stay tuned, suggesting that updates to the Mac lineup are indeed coming soon (via MacRumors).
“MacRumors cannot fully confirm the authenticity of the email, but it does appear to originate from Apple’s corporate servers based on full headers we saw. Apple executives occasionally respond to customer emails, but it is possible the response was handled by Apple’s executive relations or public relations teams”.
There have been reports that the all new MacBook Pro will be much thinner and feature an OLED-based touch bar along the top of the flatter keyboard, which will present functions that dynamically fit the current task or application, as well as integrate Touch ID to enable users to quickly log in using their fingerprint.
