Apple launches new MacBook Pro, priced in PH

On May 5, Apple launched a new 13-inch MacBook Pro, equipped with faster performance with up to 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, up to 1TB of storage, and the new ‘Magic Keyboard’ for the better typing experience, as the laptop line encountered several complaints on the keyboard of its previous models.

The new keyboard follows the “scissor” mechanism more commonly found in the industry.


The refreshed MacBook Pro now also comes with Intel Iris Graphics for faster rendering, 4K video editing, and smoother gameplay.

The MacBook Pro 2020 has the same Retina display as before, but it’s a good one as the panel now has Apple’s True Tone technology that changes the color temperature of the display based on ambient lighting conditions. 

Aside from the the brilliant 13-inch Retina display, the new MacBook Pro also packs Touch Bar and Touch ID, immersive stereo speakers, all-day battery life, and the power of macOS, all in an incredibly portable design

Battery Life

Apple rates the MacBook Pro 2020 with 10 hours of wireless web surfing and up to 10 hours of Apple TV app movie playback. That’s really good endurance on paper. We’ll be putting the new MacBook Pro 13-inch through our own web surfing battery test to see how it fares.
