Touch Bar and Touch ID. A revolutionary new way to use your Mac.
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. 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 for the first time, Touch ID is available on a Mac, enabling instant access to logins and fast, secure online purchases with Apple Pay.*
Graphics performance up to twice as fast.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro features a powerful Radeon Pro discrete GPU in every configuration, delivering up to 130 per cent faster graphics performance than the previous generation.2Manufactured with a cutting-edge 14 nm process, Radeon Pro graphics deliver up to 2.5x more computing power per watt. That means more time for what matters most — creating amazing work.
The brightest, most colourful Mac notebook display ever.
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.
Super-fast data transfer. Now even faster.
Transferring data at speeds of up to 40 Gbps, which is two times faster than Thunderbolt 2 and eight times faster than USB 3, Thunderbolt 3 delivers the fastest connection to any dock, display or device. You can also daisy-chain up to six Thunderbolt devices through a single port without needing a hub or a switch. So connecting a storage device to your computer, and then a display to your storage device, works as it’s meant to — with powerful throughput.3
Thunderbolt 3 provides twice the display bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2, enabling it to support two 4K displays or one 5K display. And with two Thunderbolt controllers in the new 15-inch MacBook Pro, you can send graphics to dual 5K displays for the perfect high-resolution photo and video editing setup. Thunderbolt 3 connects natively to all displays and monitors with DisplayPort and Mini DisplayPort, while supporting HDMI and VGA displays with the use of an adapter.
More responsive keyboard. More expansive trackpad.
Interacting with the new MacBook Pro is a better experience all round. The keyboard has been redesigned to include our new, second-generation butterfly mechanism — meticulously refined for greater comfort and responsiveness. And the Force Touch trackpad is significantly larger, giving your fingers more room to gesture and click.4
Speakers that speak for themselves. Loudly.
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. 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.
Impressive all-day battery life.
The new MacBook Pro packs more performance into a thinner design, yet still provides all-day battery life — up to 10 hours for the 13-inch model and 10 hours for the 15-inch model.5 So you’re free to keep watching, gaming and editing from wherever you are.
