Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro is also about to be updated, mainly to upgrade to the 10th-generation Core Ice Lake processor to replace the current Coffee Lake processor,media reported. Last October, Apple expanded its MacBook Pro line with a 16-inch version.

Although the model still uses Intel’s Coffee Lake processor, many key hardware has been updated, including the fault-prone and less popular butterfly keyboard.

Now Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro is about to be updated, with a new 13-inch MacBook Pro running on Twitter, according to the latest 3DMark benchmark scored by @_rogame.

The MacBook Pro 13 with ice Lake processorisisis is clearly more robust than its predecessor. Performance on the CPU side increased by approximately 12% and GPU performance by 30%. This should be the top-of-the-line version of the 2020 MacBook Pro 13, with 32GB of RAM and 2TB SSD.
The current 13-inch MacBook Pro for the 2019 model year uses a quad-core, eight-threaded Core i5-8279U processor with a base clock frequency of 2.4GHz and a Turbo mode frequency of 4.1GHz. The 2020 model year is expected to feature Intel Ice Lake’s four-core, eight-threadcore Core i7-1068NG7 processor with a base clock frequency of 2.3GHz and a Turbo mode frequency of 4.1GHz.
If the 13-inch MacBook Pro were to use Intel’s Tenth Generation Core, it would also be the first Apple notebook with a tenth-generation Core processor. In addition to upgrading the Ice Lake processor, the 2020 13-inch MacBook Pro will continue the 16-inch design refresh, which means we may see a bigger screen, or even a 14-inch MacBook Pro, with the butterfly keyboard expected to be replaced.
Finally, let’s take a look at the point in time, and unsurprisingly, Apple will release an updated 13-inch MacBook Pro in the first half of 2020, possibly at spring events in March, or quietly online.
