Apple has introduced the new MacBook Pro in 13-inch and 15-inch options. These thinnest and lightest MacBook Pro come in five options – three for the 13-inch variant and two for the 15-inch variant.
Apple has introduced the revoutionary interface that replaces the traditional row of function keys with a brilliant, Retina-quality Multi-Touch display called the Touch Bar. The new MacBook Pro features Apple’s brightest and most colorful Retina display yet, the security and convenience of Touch ID, a more responsive keyboard, a larger Force Touch trackpad.
The Touch Bar places controls right at the user’s fingertips and adapts when using the system or apps like Mail, Finder, Calendar, Numbers, GarageBand, Final Cut Pro X and many more, including third-party apps.
Integrated into the power button is the convenience and security of Touch ID, one of the great features customers have experienced on their iPhone and iPad. Once you enroll your fingerprint in Touch ID on your MacBook Pro, you can quickly unlock your Mac, switch user accounts and make secure purchases with Apple Pay on the web with a single touch.
