Apple’s newest 15″ MacBook Pro updated with Force Touch Trackpad

Apple-MacBook-Pro-15-Force-Touch-PadApple has updated their 15″ MacBook Pro with Retina display to include the new Force Touch Trackpad that supports gestures such as Force click, with new gestures coming your way via the available APIs for third-party developers.

The new track pad houses built-in force sensors and a Taptic Engine that provides haptic feedback to simulate real touch sensitivity and response. The Force Touch Trackpad is also customizable, so users can limit the amount of pressure needed to initiate clicks.

In addition, Apple boasts the new MacBook Pro delivers flash storage speeds 2.5 times faster than the previous generation, with throughput ratings up to 2GBps.

There are two new 15″ MacBook Pro models offered by Apple, with a difference in price of $500 in base configurations.

The MacBook Pro with 2.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.4 GHz), 16GB memory, 256GB flash storage, and Intel Iris Pro graphics starts at $1,999.

The higher-priced 15″ MacBook Pro features a 2.5 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.7 GHz), 16GB memory, 512GB flash storage, and AMD Radeon R9 M370X graphics. That model with base configuration is priced at $2,499.

Apple says the new 15″ MacBook Pro improves battery life from previous models by one hour, with up to 9 hours of wireless web browsing and up to 9 hours of iTunes movie playback.

Apple made a couple of announcements to their product line today, including new pricing on 27-inch iMacs with Retina 5k display.
