Apple drops the Touch Bar in the next MacBook Pro
Apple drops the Touch Bar in the next MacBook Pro

According to many reports, Apple may abandon the popular Touch Bar in the upcoming 2021 MacBook Pro.

A lot of sources have said that Apple may launch the next generation MacBook Pro in the summer of 2021. One of the many changes that the device includes is the lack of a Touch Bar.

The DSCC report provided the following statement about the future of this feature: Touch Bars remains the third largest user app with 18% piece share in Q1 2021 and sales of 1.2%.

"When Apple releases iPads with 10.9-inch AMOLED displays, we expect tablets to outperform the Touch Bar," he added. Additionally, our sources indicate that Apple may discontinue the Touch Bar in the future.

Sources such as Guo Mingchi and Bloomberg confirmed this statement. Obviously, the Touch Bar has been left entirely and replaced with a series of physical function keys.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro, released last fall, uses the Touch Bar.

The company introduced this feature in 2016. However, it did not receive any positive reviews. People love the feeling of pressing a physical button. They also found it easier to squeeze into action without having to bend their heads.

Five years after the feature was launched, Apple seems to have heard these complaints. This is an OLED display that replaces the traditional function keys.

Apple works without Touch Bar

According to the DSSC, the touch bar is currently the third largest use of OLED screens. There are rumors that the company may switch to OLED displays for the iPad in the future.

The new MacBook Pro also comes with an updated silicon processor and a redesigned design. The new design has square sides on the top and bottom halves of the device, along with the flat design trend we saw with the 2018 iPad Pro and iPhone 12 series.

Apple should also add more I/O ports on the side and load up MagSafe.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reports the return of the MagSafe power connector. But he didn't say if that meant losing the ability to attack from the left or the right.
