IT House June 2 News Late last month, Apple doubled the price of memory upgrades for the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro. US users need to pay $200 to upgrade from 8GB to 16GB, compared with the previous upgrade price of $100. Other countries have seen similar price hikes, such as Germany from 125 euros to 250 euros and the UK from 100 euros to 200 euros.
Now, according to The Verge, Apple says the price increase is actually a price correction. Other Macs, including the iMac and MacBook Air, cost $200 to upgrade from 8GB to 16GB of RAM, and the price adjustment was made to bring the 13-inch MacBook Pro model into line with those offerings . For those who purchased the cheaper RAM upgrade before the price change took effect, Apple will charge the previous list price, Apple said.
But it’s worth mentioning that the entry-level MacBook Pro uses the older LPDDR3 memory, not the newer LPDDR4X memory used in other Macs.
IT House learned that the 13-inch MacBook Pro was updated last month and used the Magic Keyboard to replace the previous butterfly keyboard.
