A touch of genius.
It's faster and more powerful than before, yet remarkably thinner and lighter. It has the brightest, most colourful Mac notebook display ever. And it introduces the Touch Bar1 – a Multi-Touch–enabled strip of glass built into the keyboard for instant access to the tools you want, just when you want them. The new MacBook Pro is built on groundbreaking ideas. And it's ready for yours.
The Touch Bar adds the most relevant tools to your keyboard – changing automatically based on what you're doing to make it easier than ever to get things done. 1 Everything you see on the Touch Bar is familiar, so you'll know how to use it straightaway. Choose from shortcuts, text suggestions 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 fast, secure online purchases with Apple Pay.
Touch ID arrives on Mac.
Now you can unlock your Mac in an instant. Use Apple Pay to make secure online purchases. 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.
The new MacBook Pro takes 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, state-of-the-art storage and more.
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 available 25 per cent more colours than standard RGB – revealing a much broader range of greens and reds.
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.5 So they make MacBook Pro the perfect choice for mixing a track on the fly, editing video on location, or enjoying a film on the go.
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 the right way up.
