Apple bans Blu-ray from Macs: Discs are 'holding us back' | CNET UKApple will never let you watch Blu-ray movies on your Mac, because discs are "holding us back". Apple has revealed the reasons the new MacBook Pro with retina display and the new super-slim iMac ditch disc drives altogether, and it's bad news for Blu-ray.
Apple marketing mouthpiece Phil Schiller told Time Blu-ray comes with "issues unrelated to the actual quality of the movie that make a complex and not-great technology".
"These old technologies are holding us back," he adds. "They're anchors on where we want to go."
