Apple has been coy about its oldest product in the Mac lineup for quite some time: The Mac Pro. WWDC after WWDC have come and gone with not even a mention of this category. The most recent public statement was by CEO Tim Cook stating that we could expect to see something in 2013 for Professional users.
Well our San Francisco Bay Area source has just informed T-GAAP.com that the time will be early April 2013. While we have been unable to corroborate this claim with another source, the timing does make a lot of sense.
April is the beginning of Apple's 3rd Financial Quarter
It would be near the time of NAB
This time is well in front of the WWDC13
For several years professional videographers, photographers and server administrators have been using equipment that is now 3-5 years old. A refresher in the professional category will definitely be a big boost to users as well as to Apple's bottom line as we anticipate demand for a new Mac Pro Tower/Server will be quite high.
