Touch Bar and Touch ID


A revolutionary new way
to use your Mac.

The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.1 It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools you already know how to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, and more. And now Touch ID is available on a Mac, enabling instant access to logins.



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.

Your favourite apps. Now with Touch Bar.

The Touch Bar can change how you experience the apps you use every day — like Photoshop, Microsoft Office, DaVinci Resolve, Logic Pro X and others. Key tools and features appear straight on the Touch Bar, so they’re easier to discover and use. It’s a dynamic canvas that developers can use to add a new dimension of interactivity to current and future apps.


Performance


Speed-of-the-art.

MacBook Pro elevates the notebook to a whole new level of performance and portability. Wherever your ideas take you, you’ll get there faster than ever with cutting-edge graphics, high-performance processors, whip-smart storage and more.

Retina Display


The brightest, most colourful
Mac notebook display ever.

The display in the MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. Its larger pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it power efficient. And it supports wide colour for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. This makes for more true-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details — essential for graphic design, colour grading and editing.

MacBook Pro features P3 colour,

and reds.

Audio


Speakers that speak
for themselves. Loudly.


Enjoy beautifully balanced, high-fidelity sound that takes listening to new levels with wide dynamic range and more bass for maximum boom. The speakers are connected directly to system power, enabling greater peak amplification. 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.

Keyboard and Trackpad


More responsive
keyboard. More
expansive trackpad.



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.4 And the Force Touch trackpad is significantly larger, giving your fingers more room to gesture and click.

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.

Simultaneously connect two 5K displays and two RAID systems to a 15-inch MacBook Pro with four Thunderbolt 3 ports to create a powerful workstation.

  • Touch Bar is available on selected models.
  • Testing conducted by Apple in May 2017 using pre-production 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i7–based 15-inch MacBook Pro systems with a 256GB SSD and 16GB of RAM; pre-production 3.1GHz dual-core Intel Core i5–based 13-inch MacBook Pro systems with a 512GB SSD and 8GB of RAM; and pre-production 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5–based 13-inch MacBook Pro systems with a 1TB SSD and 8GB of RAM. The wireless web test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing 25 popular websites with display brightness set to 12 clicks from the bottom or 75 per cent. The iTunes movie playback test measures battery life by playing back 1080p HD content with display brightness set to 12 clicks from the bottom or 75 per cent. The standby test measures battery life by allowing a system, connected to a wireless network and signed in to an iCloud account, to enter standby mode with Safari and Mail applications launched and all system settings left at default. Battery life varies by use and configuration. See www.apple.com/in/batteries for more information.
