Definitely, the standout innovation in the 2016 MacBook Pro is the Touch Bar. It replaces the old row of function keys at the top of the laptop’s keyboard; it’s a multi-touch OLED strip, originally a long, narrow screen which can be customized to display many controls, depending on what you’re doing at any moment. If you want to edit photos, the Touch Bar will highlight tool shortcuts. If you want to edit videos, you can see the whole timeline and scroll through it using the Touch Bar.

2. Touch Id

There’s a Touch ID fingerprint sensor it’s a built in feature so instead of entering a password, you just press your digit on the bar to login to your computer, or allow an app installation or purchase.

Touch ID, of course, also means Apple Pay, earlier available only on the iPhone and iPad, can now be used to make secure online purchases through MacOS.

3. Same Sizes As Before

As with the early few years, since the dismissal of the 17in model back in 2012, in fact, Apple is giving 13in and 15in alternatives of the new MacBook Pro, both with Retina Display screens. The screens provide the same number of overall pixels as earlier generations, but colour gamut, brightness, and contrast ratio have all been improved.

4. Its Thinner and Lighter

Apple just loves to make its products skinnier and smaller, if compared to the prior generation, the 13in, and 15in MacBook Pros are 17 % and 14 % thinner and weigh only 1.37 kg and 1.83 kg respectively.

In fact, the 13in model is thinner and smaller than a current 13in MacBook Air, which is weighing almost the same.

The MacBook Pro now comes in 2 colour options too. One is Silver and second is Space Grey. The light-up Apple logo on the back of the screen has been changed by a solid black one!

5. New Powerful Innards

With its base model highlighting a 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, 16 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD and Radeon Pro 450 GPU with 2 GB of VRAM. Configure it up to its best spec and those raise to a 2.9 GHz CPU, 2 TB SSD and Radeon Pro 460 with 4 GB of VRAM. You can’t increase the RAM to 32 GB, however, which might cause some consternation.

The 13in model also comes in a variety of choices, an entry-level model with 2 USB-C ports and no Touch Bar/Touch ID, that starts with a 2.0 GHz dual-core i5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD and Intel Iris 540 graphics and a model with 4 USB-C ports, a Touch Bar/Touch ID that starts with a 2.9 GHz dual-core i5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD and Intel Iris 550 graphics. It offers up to 10 hours of battery life.

6. Better Connectivity

While the earlier generation of MacBook Pros had a full variety of ports like USB, FireWire, HDMI, power, headphone. The new models have 2 types: a single 3.5 mm headphone jack and either 2 or 4 USB-C connectors and any of these can handle the following functions: power, ThunderBolt, USB, DisplayPort, VGA, and HDMI. And with adapters, there’s plenty of flexibility. but this time the MagSafe power adapter it’s not there, which was the Apple’s greatest ever innovations and the lack of an SD card slot is sure to annoy photographers. It’s a bit strange that Apple’s new laptops can’t connect to Apple’s new iPhones without an additional adapter.

7. A New Keyboard And Trackpad
