Apple’s next-generation Mac Pro and stunning XDR Display will arrive this September, according to Apple.com.

Apple didn’t confirm launch dates for either product during its WWDC reveals — but it did say they would be available this fall. Now it’s website lists a more specific date, but it’s unclear if this is just an error for now.

The new Mac Pro is the desktop computer professional users have been waiting for. Unlike its predecessor, the new machine is like a more traditional PC, with all the upgrade and expansion options you would expect.

We’ve been waiting for the new Mac Pro — and a new display to go with it — for a couple of years now. And now it looks like they’ll be available to order in September … maybe.

Mac Pro and XDR Display could be three months away

Apple did tell us the 2019 Mac Pro and XDR Display would arrive this fall, but it wasn’t more specific. If you visit Apple.com in the United States today, however, you’ll see that both products are listed to be “coming September.”

There is a catch, though.

You will only see this launch date if you click the “Notify me” links on the Apple.com homepage. However, if you visit the Mac Pro or XDR Display product pages and click “Notify me” from there, you’ll see “coming this fall.”

Other marketing materials for these products are also less specific with “coming this fall” release dates.

Is Apple’s homepage wrong?

This indicates the “coming September” notice on the Apple.com homepage could be an error. Technically, fall doesn’t end until late December, so a September launch does seem a little early.

Apple has been working on these products for a while, so you never know. But it’s probably best not to get your hopes up yet. We’ve contacted Apple for clarification and we’ll update this post if we get a response.
