MacBook Pro 2016 brought a refreshing new feature in the form of the Touch Bar. This latest addition to the Macbook received huge accolades from all corners. The Touch Bar is very handy and the offered options in different native MacOS applications make the experience even more comfortable. The Touch Bar comes up with a unique set of options once you open up any application making it easier for the users to navigate in that application.
It has a deep integration with the operating system and almost all the famous MacOS applications have been updated to work seamlessly with the Touch Bar. However, even this Touch Bar isn’t hang-proof and might hang sometime. In such cases, most users just restart the whole system, but you don’t need to do it.
