Apple has confirmed to TechCrunch that a new high-end desktop Mac won't be released until next year. In a briefing with Axios and other reporters last year, it had said the redesigned Mac Pro wouldn't arrive in 2017 but stopped short of promising it would come this year either.

Why it matters: Apple doesn't usually signal when new products are coming, but in this case it wants its most loyal customers to be able to plan their purchases.
