Why new MacBooks were a no-show at Apple's iPhone XS event

9 monthes ago   |   By Tech Radar

Once again, Macs of any kind were a no-show at Apple's latest keynote. While this pattern should almost be a given at this point, it's no less disappointing. However, between Apple keeping to a very mobile-centric show and other rumblings in the silicon world, we can imagine two key reasons as to why there weren't any new Macs announced alongside the new Apple Watch 4 and iPhone XS .
One of these things is not like the others
We're well past the days of Apple launching a half dozen products at once. As of late, Apple has been much more focused on presenting a focused lineup within a...
