Apple is all set to unveil a group of new products in a couple of hours, led no less by the iPhone 7. Rumored to be joining the latest flagship are the Apple Watch 2 and possibly the latest iOS 10.

Another product line, the MacBook Pro 2016, could be in the mix though the safe bet is to see the Apple notebook refresh by the Fall. With a lot of new product ahead, the Cupertino company could be doing some Spring cleaning on their end.

Mac Pro 2013 Support Pages Archived

While retailers try to clean up their inventory to make room for up and coming Apple devices, support pages could be in for some changes as well. In fact, Apple Insider notes the archiving of the guides for the Mac Pro 2013, hinting at a possible refresh.

The Mac Pro 2013 pages offered guides and information covering port configuration, computer orientation, and the recommended firmware/ software, all of which can no longer be accessed. The last update on the pages covered the update on the orientation page made in December 2015.

Curiously, other products like the iPhone 4 technical specs are still up, as well as some discontinued devices like iPads. It could be purely coincidental though some have tied it up to coming solutions or even a possible Mac Pro refresh.

It has been two years since Apple updated the Mac Pro, a cylindrical version that succeeded a previous tower-type machine. Given the time-element, Apple could come out with a refresh though nothing (even from the rumor mill) has come out so far.

Among the highlights of the Mac Pro include a powerful mix of three Intel Xeon processors and an impressive GPU that made it pretty reliable. With the spotlight now on the iPhone 7, Apple Watch 2 and the eventual MacBook Pro 2016, it will be interesting if the Mac Pro could be primed for an overhaul soon.
