It’s been a frustratingly long time since Apple rolled out a meaningful update to its MacBook Pro line, but Tim Cook and co. earlier today introduced a new MacBook Pro that may very well have been worth the wait. Without question, the most intriguing aspect of Apple’s new top of the line notebook is an OLED touch display that Apple is calling the Touch Bar.
As previously rumored, the Touch Bar will dynamically display different control options depending on whatever app happens to be up and running. Even better, the Touch Bar can be customized to more efficiently fit into a user’s specific workflow. Of course, the MacBook Pro’s new Touch Bar isn’t the only thing worth getting excited about. From faster internals to Touch ID integration, you can bet that Apple’s new MacBook Pro lineup will be especially popular come this holiday season.
During the course of Apple’s presentation today, the company showed off a slew of videos to highlight all of the snazzy new software and hardware design changes behind its biggest notebook refresh in years. If you missed today’s event, Apple a short while ago posted all of its aired videos onto its YouTube page and we’ve compiled them all here for your viewing pleasure.
First up, this video focuses on Apple’s new Touch Bar. It should provide you with a general idea of why the Touch Bar is such a game-changing feature.
Second, what Apple event would be complete without a Jony Ive narrated event detailing all of the design and hardware innovations that went into creating Apple’s latest creation.
Third, we have an ad that will likely show up on a TV near you sometime soon.
And last but not least, we have a video retrospective which highlights the evolution of Apple laptop design over the past few decades.
