It’s razor thin, feather light, and even faster and more powerful than before. It has the brightest, most colorful Mac notebook display ever. And it features the Touch Bar a Multi-Touch enabled strip of glass built into the keyboard for instant access to the tools you want, just when you want them. MacBook Pro is built on groundbreaking ideas. And it’s ready for yours.
Touch Bar and Touch ID
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.2 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 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.
Your favorite 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 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.
Impressive all-day battery life.
MacBook Pro packs more performance into a thin design, yet still provides all-day battery life up to 10 hours for both the 13-inch and 15-inch models.1 So you’re free to keep watching, gaming and editing from wherever you are.
The coolest thing you’ll never see.
The thinner the notebook, the less space for cooling. So MacBook Pro incorporates innovations throughout the system that efficiently eliminate heat increasing airflow during intensive tasks like editing video, playing graphics-heavy games and transferring huge files.
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 large pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it power efficient. And it supports wide color 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, cooler grading and editing.
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 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 40Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. 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.
