Apple Updates 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display

2015 Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch

Apple today updated the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display with the all-new Force Touch trackpad, fifth generation Intel Core processors and Intel Iris Graphics 6100, and two times faster flash and longer battery life. These enhancements bring even more performance and capabilities, while keeping pricing the same as last year’s models with a base price of $1,299.

The all-new Force Touch trackpad brings a new dimension of interactivity. Its built-in force sensors allow you to click anywhere and haptic feedback provides a responsive and uniform feel. You can even customize the feel of the trackpad by changing the amount of pressure needed to register each click. The Force Touch trackpad also enables a new gesture called Force Click, a click followed by a deeper press, for tasks like pulling up the definition of a word, quickly seeing a map or glancing at a preview of a file.

The new models come with fifth generation Intel Core processors up to 3.1 GHz, with Turbo Boost Speeds up to 3.4 GHz, faster integrated Intel Iris Graphics 6100, and flash storage that is up to two times faster, with throughput up to 1.6GBps. In addition, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now delivers up to 10 hours of battery life and up to 12 hours of iTunes movie playback.
