Take a tour of MacBook Pro
Note: This guide is for the currently shipping 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. If you’re not sure which model you have or want to find information and documentation for other models, see the Apple Support article Identify your MacBook Pro model. Not all features are available on all MacBook Pro models.
Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports: Charge your computer, transfer data at Thunderbolt speeds (up to 40 Gbps), connect to a display or projector, and more. On the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Apple M1 chip, the ports also support USB 4 peripherals.
3.5 mm headphone jack: Plug in stereo headphones or external speakers to listen to your favorite music or movies. On 16-inch MacBook Pro models, the speaker woofers deliver rich bass with almost no vibration.
Microphones: Record live music, make conference calls, and mix audio on the go. The three-microphone array on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Apple M1 chip and the 16-inch MacBook Pro deliver studio-quality recordings with high signal-to-noise ratio and directional beamforming.
Touch Bar: The Touch Bar at the top of the keyboard dynamically adapts to the app you’re using. The Touch Bar is an extension of the keyboard—it presents intuitive shortcuts and application controls, when and where you need them. You can use familiar gestures like swipe and tap in the Touch Bar. See MacBook Pro Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar and Touch ID.
FaceTime HD camera: Make FaceTime video calls or take pictures and video. If the light is glowing, the camera is on. See FaceTime.
Touch ID (the power button): Press to turn on your MacBook Pro (or just lift the lid or press any key). When you first start up or restart, you need to log in by typing your password. To learn more about how to use Touch ID, see MacBook Pro Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar and Touch ID.
Force Touch trackpad: Control your MacBook Pro with gestures. The entire trackpad surface acts as a button so you can easily click anywhere. For more about using gestures, see MacBook Pro trackpad.
