“One well-connected insider has given Mac users hope that Apple will release a new Mac Pro with a comment that there is no chance Apple will discontinue the line,” Josh Ong reports for AppleInsider.
“Jim Dalrymple of The Loop made the remarks on Wednesday during his ‘Amplified’ podcast with Dan Benjamin, as noted by Marco Arment. Dalrymple has a proven track record with Apple predictions,” Ong reports. “When asked by Benjamin if there is ‘any chance’ that Apple will get rid of the Mac Pro, Dalrymple simply replied, ‘No.'”
Ong reports, “Arment compared the exchange to a blog post by Dalrymple from February that succinctly confirmed a rumor of a March 7 iPad launch with the word ‘Yep.’ That report turned out to be accurate, as Apple did in fact hold its 2012 iPad launch on March 7.”
