When it comes to Apple computers, they have been criticized for the lack of flexibility towards user upgrades. Basically, if you buy an iMac, Mac Pro or Macbook, what you get is what you get suck with unless you buy another one. That’s why most users tend to spend more and go for the high-end specs when buying Apple gear. But it seems times are changing, and Apple devices tend to change with them.

The new Mac Pro is reported to have been built with more modding features in mind, and according to Other World Computing who performed a quick teardown of the new Mac Pro, it has been confirmed that the CPU in the computer is removable, meaning that users will be able to upgrade the CPU whenever they want in the event that it starts to get a little old or worn out.

This is thanks to the fact that the processor is socketed to the motherboard, as opposed to being directly soldered, which seems to be the case in most of Apple’s Mac computers, both laptop and desktop. Apple’s Mac Pros have typically been a little bit more customizable than the iMac, where users can swap out RAM and graphic cards for something better or newer. The CPU swapping feature might not seem to be as flexible as what you can do in custom-built Windows-based PCs, but at least it is a step forward.
