Right from the moment, Apple showcased “Touch Bar” at the “Hello Again” Mac event, I’m thoroughly fascinated with its functionality. Though laptops and computers with a full-on touchscreen are good, they haven’t been able to attract me. What makes the OLED panel on the MBP so user-friendly is the ability to let you use apps and control settings with consummate ease.
With Touch Bar, you can effortlessly add a new item in the list, edit and check off any reminder. The touch technology works pretty smoothly with the stock Reminders app.
