A cool new feature which Apple has introduced is the touchbar. The touchbar, made of OLED display, replaces the function keys altogether. We can’t help but admire this feature as the functionality of the touchbar changes based on what you are doing . Changing the brightness, volume, using emojis are some of the many things you can do with it. Additionally the power button has been replaced by touchID enabling fingerprint scanning.The touchpad now comes with a Force Touch technology having pressure sensing capabilities.
