It has been a while since Apple said anything about its plans for the Mac Pro and the company is finally breaking its silence about this product today. Apple’s Phil Schiller has confirmed that the company is “completely rethinking the Mac Pro” after the product was last refreshed back in 2013. Apple is working on an entirely new Mac Pro but it has pointed out that the new product won’t be released in 2017.

Schiller confirmed that Apple is working on a completely new Mac Pro in an interview with BuzzFeed News. He pointed out that the company is hard at work creating this new product and also mentioned that a separate pro display is being worked on as well.

Schiller didn’t confirm when both products are going to arrive. The teams that are working on these new products have been told to take their time designing the new Mac Pro so that they can improve upon some of the design issues of the current model.

Even Apple’s Craig Federighi that the company designed itself “into a bit of a corner” by going with a circular shape for the Mac Pro. “We wanted to do something bold and different. What we didn’t appreciate completely at the time was how we had so tailored that design to a specific vision that in the future we would find ourselves a bit boxed in — into a circular shape,” he added.

Apple isn’t saying anything more about the new Mac Pro so there’s no word on its specifications, expected launch timeframe, and price.
