When is Apple finally going to release the Mac Pro? Reports reveal the company might be planning on a December release.

2019 Mac Pro Release

It was months ago when Apple unveiled the 2019 Mac Pro at the Worldwide Developers Conference, but the company did not then release any details on when it might come out. In fact, Apple ’s website just says the product is “coming this fall.”

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple is set to release the 2019 Mac Pro this coming December, very much like the 2013 Mac Pro that was released Dec. 18, and the 2017 Mac Pro that was released Dec. 14.

The 2019 Mac Pro is said to be Apple’s most powerful system to date, with Xeon processors with up to 28 cores and up to 1.5TB of memory. It also features a sleek design with its stainless steel frame and an aluminum housing with a lattice pattern for maximum airflow and 360-degree access to its components.

“Say hello to a Mac that is extreme in every way. With the greatest performance, expansion, and configurability yet, it is a system created to let a wide range of professionals push the limits of what is possible,” Apple states about the new Mac Pro.

Mac Pro prices start at $6,000.

Mac Pro Production

It was indeed a long road from when the new Mac Pro was introduced in June to its impending release in December. With a majority of Apple products being assembled in China, Apple had a bit of trouble due to the trade tariffs implemented by the Trump administration.

Apple was eventually able to secure federal exclusions for some of the parts they needed to import from China without being subject to tariffs, and Mac Pro production was moved to Austin, Texas, making it the only Apple product produced in the U.S.

According to CEO Tim Cook, Apple deeply believes in American innovation which is why every Apple product is designed in the U.S. and made up of parts from 36 states. As such, the company is proud to be manufacturing its most powerful computer yet in Austin.

The move, as Apple sees it, is a part of its plan to invest $350 billion in the American government by 2023.
