Apple on Thursday announced its new MacBook Pro lineup with improved internals and revamped design.As expected, the new MacBook Pro’s features an OLED touch strip, that Apple calls “Touch Bar”.The new Touch Bar is built-in Retina Multi-Touch display above the keyboard that responds to both taps and gestures. It adapts when using the system or apps like Mail, Finder, Calendar, GarageBand, Final Cut Pro X and much more.For example, when you’re in the Photos app, you’ll see image editing tools so you can use the bar to resize the image or apply filters. Touch Bar can also show you emoji when you’re typing, and you can press the Fn key on the keyboard to show system functions.
The new MacBook Pro also has Touch ID which is integrated into the power button.Once you set up your fingerprint in Touch ID on your MacBook Pro, you can quickly unlock your Mac, switch user accounts and make purchases with Apple Pay on the web with a single touch.The new display on the MacBook Pro is 67 percent brighter, has a 67 percent better contrast ratio, and displays 25 percent more colors.Battery life on the new MacBook Pro’s is said to be “up to 10 hours”, which is slightly longer than the old models.
The new MacBook Pro also offers a much larger Force Touch trackpads — 46 percent larger on the 13-inch MacBook Pro and twice as large on the 15-inch MacBook Pro, and a louder, more true-to-life sound through speakers with double the dynamic range and improved bass.
