Apple has finally shown off new MacBook Pro laptops. It took them long enough. After almost three years since the last major refresh we have new devices to consider and if you can get over the price shock - prices start from £1,449 - you'll be keen to know what's new.
So V3 has put together a little run down of the key features to help you know exactly what you'll be getting if you plump for either of the new MacBooks coming to the market.
6. Touch Bar
The big talking point about Apple’s new MacBook Pros is their newfangled ‘Touch Bar’, an OLED Retina-resolution display that sits in place of the usual function keys.
This touch-sensitive panel is dynamic, and changes the functions that it displays depending on what app you're using.
For example, if you're in Safari it'll show you your favourite websites, tabs and an address bar, and if you're in Pages it'll show you QuickType suggestions and formatting options.Apple name-checked a bunch of third-party apps that will soon offer Touch Bar support, including Microsoft's Office suite, Adobe PhotoShop and a new version Final Cut Pro X
The firm also noted that, as well as being able to customise the Touch Bar, users will be able to access all of the usual functions such as brightness keys and volume controls, as well as an all-new Siri key for firing up the hard-of-hearing digital assistant.
Apple is also selling a 13in MacBook without the Touch Bar included, so be aware of that if you do order online and don't select the right option.
