Apple To Add Touch Screens To MacBooks

Apple has finally decided to add touch screens to MacBooks, breaking its infamous policy of not bringing in touch screens for over a decade since Steve Jobs called them “ergonomically terrible.”

The company is now working on touchscreen MacBooks which is tipped to release in 2025.

Apple had previously argued that touch screens don’t work well on laptops and that the iPad is a better option if someone wants a touch interface. This could be because they did not want iPad sales to plummet.

But with an increasing number of rivals such as Microsoft, Lenovo, Acer, Dell, adding touch screens to their computers, Apple has finally caved.

The technology giant could launch its first touch-screen Mac in 2025 as part of a larger update to the MacBook Pro, tipped some people who prefer to remain anonymous since the project plans are confidential.

The current work calls for Apple’s first touch-screen MacBook Pro to retain a traditional laptop design, including a standard trackpad and keyboard.

However, the laptop’s screen would support touch input and gestures — just like an iPhone or iPad. Over time, Apple could expand touch support to more of its Mac models.

As part of the MacBook Pro revamp, Apple is also planning to move its displays to organic light-emitting diode, or OLED technology. Besides that, the company is also on the move to release their in-house displays for phones as early as 2024.
