The FCC just signed off on Apple’s next professional-grade desktop. The 2019 Mac Pro was announced this summer, and this approval clears the way for a release.
It’s possible the launch will even be today. The FCC typically gives the go-ahead to Apple products on the same day they’re announced. AirPods Pro got its green light on Monday, right about the time Apple was unveiling these new in-ear headphones, for example.
2019 Mac Pro is truly for professionals
The 2019 desktop is designed for professionals, no prosumers, with an insane 28-core Intel Xeon processor, up to 1.5TB of RAM, and other super-high-end features.
It is made with a stainless steel frame that’s designed for modularity. Built in are eight PCI expansion slots, a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports and an audio jack.
Pricing on the Mac Pro starts at $5999, which is typical for truly professional computers.
Although the wraps came off in June, Apple hasn’t given a release date other than some time this fall. But FCC approval means an announcement could come any day now.
