“Claims Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processors may not appear in new Macs until next year men Apple could do worse than to take steps to reassure Mac users,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld.
“Mac users are worried about the future of the platform,” Evans writes. “They are unhappy that new Mac models have become less predictable than iPhones, and they can’t understand why PC makers will be shipping new Kaby Lake powered machines this year while Apple (it is claimed) will not.”
“The problem is the only new Mac that people think may appear this year is one of those the new Intel chip isn’t available for yet, the MacBook Pro. If you believe the rumors, this is getting Touch ID and an OLED touch panel, and if you believe MacRumors it won’t get the new Intel chip,” Evans writes. “Chatter and speculation like this shows the huge divide that’s opening up between Apple and loyal Mac users, particularly in the pro markets.”
