After four long years, Apple Inc. finally unveiled its new MacBook Pro on Thursday, October 27.

The main feature of the device is that it includes a new display called the ‘Touch Bar’ at the top of the keyboard.

The display, positioned where the function keys used to be, allows you to control Mac apps with your fingertips. It will adjust in real time based on what software, such as Photoshop, you’re using.

The device also feature a trackpad double the size of its previous models.

However, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is 23% smaller in volume and considerably thinner than the previous version. The smaller version weighs just three pounds — the 15-inch MacBook Pro clocks in at one pound more.

Touch ID is also coming to the MacBook Pro, located next to the Touch Bar. You can use it for security, like logging into your computer or switching between users, and access Apple Pay with the touch of your finger.

With an Intel Core i7 processor and a new graphics card, the 15-inch MacBook Pro is more than twice as fast as the previous 15-inch model. The 13-inch model also features improved speed and performance.

Meanwhile, Apple is also making a model of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with traditional function keys and no Touch Bar. The product is meant to appeal to potential 13-inch MacBook Air buyers — its smaller and thinner (and more affordable) laptop.

“We believe the future of TV is apps,” claimed Apple’s CEO Tim Cook.

Cook kicked off the event by announcing a TV app that lets you access content across other apps. A feature called “Up Next” allows you to toggle between what you’re watching on your mobile device and the TV (i.e. you’ll be able pick up where you left off in a movie bought on iTunes, or a TV show from HBO Now). The free app will roll out by the end of the year.

Cook added that 8,000 apps are now available on Apple TV — 2,000 of which are games. Popular game Minecraft will be coming to the platform soon.
