If you’re not an active follower of any Apple related news, then you probably assume the last and most recent product they released was the iPhone 7. Wrong. Apple’s latest product is actually the upgraded MacBook Pro. There are a few noticeable features that are different from previous models as expected, but there is one component that is completely new to the MacBook, and most laptops in general.
The newest, and probably most interesting feature about the new MacBook Pro is the “Touch Bar”. The Touch Bar replaces the traditional navigation and basic function buttons such as volume, screen and keyboard brightness, music control etc. All of these buttons were located at the very top of the keyboard on the older modeled MacBook’s.
The Touch Bar is a very small touch screen essentially that replaces all of these basic keys, and offers some incredible features. You can swipe your finger across it to browse through photos or music, select different emojis to use, drag items from the screen onto it, and any other traditional features. By no means do I want my laptop to kick the bucket anytime soon, but I would love to get my hands on a new MacBook Pro to utilize the new Touch Bar feature.
