Apple, the American Company, recently unveiled their new laptops MacBook Pro 2016 with special specifications and new features that captured the user’s and expert’s attention.
Apple announced their new laptop on October 27th 2016 during a press conference. And it was the first announcement after iPhone 7. The experts and technicians were not surprised with the specifications of MacBook Pro 2016 since the leeks were completely true.
Tim Cook, the Executive Chief of Apple, was the one who made the announcement just like he did with previous Apple products. Tim Cook became the official announcer of Apple products after the passing of Steve Jobs in 2011.
We must point that one of the major specifications of MacBook Pro 2016 is that it is lighter and slimmer than its previous versions.
Specifications of MacBook Pro 2016
Apple released MacBook Pro 2016 with a slogan “A touch of genius”. They gave it this slogan because the new version of MacBook Pro has been elevated and it became the fastest, strongest, lightest, and slimmest MacBook release.
Apple also confirms that MacBook Pro 2016 has the clearest and brightest retina screen. It also has a larger track-pad allowing more control, and the addition of a touch-bar.
According to Apple, MacBook Pro 2016 is 130% faster than the previous models when it comes to processing graphical images. It also has a 67% better brightness, and is 17% slimmer. These facts apply to both MacBook Pro 2016 editions: the 15 inch screen and 13 inch screen.
As mentioned above, MacBook Pro 2016 has a touch-bar before the keyboard. This touch-bar was developed by Apple and it replaces the command keys (function keys). Apple is now trying to completely replace this touch bar with the usual keys to provide more space on the keyboard.
The touch-bar changes in accordance to the type of work or task you are using automatically. It generally helps you control the volume and screen brightness, editing and searching applications and programs on the device, displays emojis, and many more.
And for the first time in MacBook history, Apple equipped the new Pro with fingerprint recognition which replaces the usual password protection.
