Here Is Why Apple Chose The Touch Bar On MacBook Pro Instead Of Full Touch Screen

Many Apple fans are wondering why did Apple go for the Touch Bar instead of a full touch screen display, we might have some answers...

In a recent interview given by Apple design chief ,Jony Ive has explained some of the thinking behind the design of the MacBook Pro. Ive also put light on why the company went for the Touch bar instead of full screen touch.

The newly announced 2016 MacBook Pro features an OLED touch based panel on the top of its keyboard. This is the place where previously function keys used to be. This can be changed now as per the software being run and the application being run.

The removal of static buttons and replacing them with more lively buttons allows it to be a huge potential as an input source for Apple users. Ive pointed out that creating this bar wasn’t so straight forward. A number of designs were tested before the final version was put together.

Ive further explained that perhaps the most difficult part was taking a design and converting it in to a shipping product without detracting the originality of the product. Over the past years many companies have given out great designs but they didn’t quite pull it off right.

Apple was remotely aware that sometimes even good designs do not guarantee good results. Apple’s Touch bar can prove to be a huge game changer for MacBooks. It is also expected that the touch bar will make a jump to other devices too.

You may expect the physical buttons on your Mac to be obsolete soon.
