Apple doesn't waste time consolidating its product lineups-after announcing new MacBook Pro models today, the 2015 MacBook Pro has been removed from the Mac section of Apple's website.

"The latest-generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we've ever made", Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice-president of worldwide marketing, said in a statement.

Apple has just revealed its new MacBook Pro for 2018 featuring the latest 8th gen Intel Core processors. Upgrades are available to bring the Core i9 into play, up to 32GB of RAM and 4TB of SSD storage - a max spec version now costs $6,699.

Both models now come with a True Tone display for a more natural viewing experience.

Ghost particles from outer space: Scientists discover distant source of neutrinos
Only one of these neutrinos , out of many millions that sailed through Antarctica's ice, was detected by IceCube on September 22. However, a small percentage of these ghost particles that have high energies are said to have come from deep space .

One of the updates include a third generation butterfly keyboard that Apple says is "quieter". In addition, the coprocessor Apple T2, which acts as controller flash memory, microphones, speakers, camera, FaceTime, and is also responsible for security during booting and the fans of the cooling system allows you to activate Siri by voice command. In that case, you can return your MacBook to the Apple store, no questions asked.

The smaller MacBook Pro starts at US$1,799 and the larger model at US$2,399.

Coming to the 13-inch model of the Apple MacBook Pro 2018, it is powered by quad-core Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors clocked at 2.7GHz and Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz.

The rest of the machines stay untouched, including the four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, battery life and screen resolution.

Chelsea sack Antonio Conte
Premier League giants Chelsea have announced the sacking of Antonio Conte . The former Empoli manager was named Serie A Coach of the Year in 2016-17.

To be clear, it's the 15-inch model that will offer the highest-end specifications, as it historically always has.

The Pro models start at a mammoth £1,749 for the 13-inch model and £2,349 for a 15 inch device. The T2 chip also enables users to interact with Apple's virtual assistant using the wakeword "Hey Siri", similar to iPhones.

Apple iterated on the key design in the 2017 Macbook Pros, and users reported less reliability problems with the keyboard.

The entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar didn't get an update, and neither did the thin-and-light MacBook nor the more affordable MacBook Air.
