- Apple could introduce a MacBook Pro notebook with a touchscreen as early as 2025.
- The decision would represent a dramatic about-face for Apple, which has long maintained that touchscreen computers are less ergonomic.
- Sales of Apple’s Mac products have increased by 40% since 2020, therefore the company doesn’t need a boost.
The future of Apple’s client base is at risk with its impending switch to Macs with touch panels. Additionally, the business ramps up its internal technological initiatives, working on new wireless processors and its first micro-LED displays. In other news, Tim Cook receives a 40% pay cut, while Apple’s services division’s probable heir is mysteriously fired.
Apple will promote its mixed-reality headset in 2023, but not much more, Power On said last week. Mark Gurman, CEO of tech giant Apple, is purportedly trying to add touchscreen capabilities to Macs. Sometime in 2025 is thought to be the release date.
Apple’s existing lineup of laptops would undoubtedly undergo a significant change if the company were to introduce a MacBook with a touch screen. The now-defunct touch bar on the 2016 lineup of MacBook Pro models was the closest Apple came to including a touchscreen on a MacBook.
Multitouch actions like pinch-to-zoom and swipe, often used on smartphones and tablets, would probably be supported on a touchscreen MacBook. The ability to more simply and intuitively use touch-based apps and programs, such as sketching and painting software, would be one of the main benefits of a touchscreen MacBook. A touchscreen would also give users more flexibility in how they interact with their laptops, allowing them to use their fingers instead of a touchpad or mouse to browse menus and carry out tasks.
The capability of using the gadget as a tablet is an additional benefit. Users might use the device as a tablet by removing the keyboard and using the touch screen, which could be handy for taking notes, drawing, and other tasks.
