Apple may add Force Touch to the Touch Bar on future MacBook Pros

Apple could add a Force Touch sensor to the Macbook Pro laptop lineup in the future. Patently Apple reported that Apple filed a patent to The United States Patent & Trademark Office that clearly shows Apple is developing a pressure-sensitive OLED screen on the Touch Bar.

Apple has a history of adding a pressure-sensitive to its products, starting in 2015 with the Apple Watch, the iPhone 6s under the name of ”3D Touch”, and the MacBook Pro trackpad under the name of “Force Touch”

But due to its low usage and lack of discoverability, Apple began to remove it on iPhones starting with the iPhone XR – where Apple replaced it with Haptic Touch which is a long press – and with watchOS 7 this year, the feature was removed on the Apple Watch.

But now, it looks like Apple is reviving the idea back by implementing it on the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro. The Touch Bar was introduced in 2016 as a feature of the MacBook Pro and stayed the same throughout the years.
