If you have the MacBook Pro Touch Bar 2016 to 2019 you will definitely want to know this Important Information! Prepare yourselves!

All MacBook Pro Touch Bar 2016 Users:

You can tell if you have a MacBook Pro Touch Bar 2016 model or any model year by following the steps below:

  1. Please go to your Apple Icon on the Top Right Upper Corner! This is the Apple Logo on your Apple Menu Bar the icon you use to shut down or restart your Macintosh computer!
  2. Once you click the Apple Icon click “About this Mac” Should be the first option in the drop-down menu!
  3. The First thing you see should be the year of the MacBook. Read the contents of the opened window.
  4. Need help please go to this link and it will show you the above steps from Apple Support: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203001#:~:text=Choose%20Apple%20menu%20%EF%A3%BF%20%3E%20About,click%20the%20System%20Report%20button.

If you see the 2016 Touch Bar you must know these grave flaws!

In 2016, Apple for some crazy reason decided to make the MacBook Pro Touch Bar! Trust me it was Awful!!! I work with MacBooks since I am an I.T. guy. I have used or touched all Touch Bar MacBooks starting in 2016 to 2019.

2016 was a failure!!! The “New” butterfly keyboard was so flat it drove me up the wall and the flat keys just broke in a few months. Also One Big ISSUE. The Display was a total mess up of the era! The display cable was so darn short when you pushed back the display and it passes the 90-degree angle where most people have the display open all the way back to about 230 degrees the display ribbon cable that was for some darn reason installed in the center of the bottom side of the display became dislodged and you will get the spotlight effect like the picture below:
