Apple's Official Reveals Why Touchscreen and Face ID Are Absent in New MacBooks

Now that the new Apple MacBook Pro has hit the market, officials from the tech giant explain why the M1 Max Chip-packed laptop doesn’t have things like a touchscreen or Face ID.

Touchscreens are widely available in Windows computers, but Apple has yet to include this tech into its Macbook. “We make the world’s best touch computer on an iPad. It’s totally optimized for that, and the Mac is totally optimized for indirect input. We haven’t really felt a reason to change that.” said John Ternus, Apple’s senior vice president of hardware engineering.

Another function is its signature, Face ID, replacing the Touch ID for safety reasons. Apple’s Vice President of Mac and iPad Product Marketing, Tom Boger, provided an answer on this: “your hands are already on the keyboard when using a MacBook Pro, so unlocking the device with Touch ID is more user-friendly.”
