Come On Apple

It's late Summer/Early Fall 2016 and most Macs don't support new Intel chips or USB3.1 and Thunderbolt 3! The current crop of Macs is now over a year old and is looking like Apple doesn't care anymore about their core of Macs. Then Apple wonders why Macs sales are going down!

I’m thinking that they are working on it, just being very secretive. Then again, maybe they can’t see the forest through the trees.

I've see some rumors that Apple is dropping Intel chips and going to their own chips. However to me this doesn't make sense! I just feel that Apple has moved it's computers to back burner in favor of OS X or their new Swift language is giving them fits!

key word here is ‘rumors’. Maybe they have something more up their sleeve. In the past we questioned some of their decisions, only to embrace them after a while - or did we just accept them? Case in point - not long ago we questioned the decision to move from Motorola chips to Intel. The rumor was that they were buddying up with a Windows company.

Hmmm... Not quite accurate.
Apple did adjust prices on most Macs, so that memory and storage options are somewhat less expensive.
Perhaps that isn't what you meant by "updates", but it's something.
The announcements about MBPros was mostly what that event was for. Little if any mention of desktops. That doesn't necessarily mean that no desktops will be updated this year.
Apple has been known to announce new updates, with little more than a news release. There's not always the full-on public events, perhaps when the update is simply processor/speed bumps.
