Touch Bar and Touch ID


A revolutionaly new
way to use your Mac.

The Touch Bar adds the most relevant tools directly to your keyboard - changing automatically based on what you're doing to make it easier than ever to get things done.2 Everything you see on the Touch Bar is familiar, so you'll instantly know how to use it. Choose from shortcuts, text suggestions3 and more with a single touch. Scrub through a video timeline in full screen or tap to browse and edit photos. And for the first time, Touch ID is available on a Mac, enabling instant access to logins and so much more.


Touch ID arrives on Mac.
Now you can unlock your Mac in an instant. Quickly access system settings and locked notes. And even switch between users - all with the touch of a finger.

For your favourite apps and those to come.
The Touch Bar can change how you experience the apps you use every day - including third-party apps. It's a dynamic canvas that developers can use to add a new dimension to existing and future apps.

Retina Display


The brightest, most colourful
Mac notebook display ever.

The new display in the MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features brighter LED backlighting and an increased contrast ratio, delivering deeper blacks and brighter whites. Its larger pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it more power efficient than previous generations. And it's the first Mac notebook to support wide colour, for even more vibrant greens and reds. This ensures truer-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, essential for graphic design, colour grading and editing.

MacBook Pro now features P3 colour, which makes 25 per cent more colours available than standard RGB - revealing a much broader range of greens and reds.

Audio


Speakers that speak
for themselves. Loudly.


The speakers have been totally redesigned to provide as much as twice the dynamic range and up to 58 per cent more volume, with two and a half times louder bass for maximum boom. And they're connected directly to system power, enabling up to three times more peak power.6 So they make MacBook Pro the perfect choice for mixing a track on the fly, editing video on location or enjoying a movie on the go.

Interacting with the new MacBook Pro is a better experience all around. The keyboard has been redesigned to include the new Apple-designed, second-generation butterfly mechanism — meticulously refined for greater comfort and responsiveness. And the Force Touch trackpad is significantly larger, giving your fingers more room to gesture and click.6

Thunderbolt 3


The most powerful
and versatile port ever.

Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-versatility of the USB-C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gbps of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. And both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with four ports, so you can do all that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it's always right side up.
