When released, Appleâ€™s updated MacBook Pro 13 will get the most powerful 10th-gen Intel Ice Lake CPU available. But otherwise Apple's late to the gameâ€”again.

First item for examination is the CPU. Intel originally launched its most advanced 10nm 10th-gen â€œIce Lakeâ€� series of CPUs way back in August. PC laptops based on Ice Lake appeared by October, and itâ€™s gradually made its way into dozens of laptops since then.
