After years of resisting touch, Apple is rumored to be working on touchscreen Macs

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is reportedly working on touchscreen Macs.

While there’s no guarantee that Apple will eventually launch a touchscreen Mac — Apple has scrapped projects before — Gurman thinks we could see a touchscreen MacBook Pro as early as 2025.

He says that model would have an OLED screen, which would be different from current models that use mini-LED screens.

Gurman also says that this touchscreen MacBook Pro would look like existing models and would have a keyboard and trackpad. The only difference is that the display supports touch input.

If these rumors are true, it would be a rather dramatic turnaround for Apple. Company has resisted touch screen for Macs for years with Steve Jobs famously saying that “touch surfaces don’t want to be vertical.”

Plus, in order for touchscreen Macs to work, Apple would have to give macOS a rather thorough makeover. The current iteration of macOS has fairly small icons and buttons that are ideal for touch interaction.
