Force Touch track­pad

Mac Format - - MAC BOOK -

Avail­able in the Mac­Book and the up­dated 13-inch Mac­Book Pro, Ap­ple’s pres­sure-sen­si­tive Force Touch track­pad in­tro­duces a new di­men­sion to Mac’s user in­ter­face: it can dis­tin­guish be­tween a tap and a click, and it’s

able to tell how hard you’re press­ing. The track­pad pro­vides hap­tic feed­back and its built-in force sen­sors mean you can click any­where to ini­ti­ate an ac­tion. It will per­form dif­fer­ent ac­tions depend­ing on how much pres­sure you ap­ply. So, while you might tap lightly to se­lect a file, a harder press (Force click) in­vokes dif­fer­ent ac­tions, such as look­ing up word def­i­ni­tions or open­ing a de­tails in­spec­tor for cal­en­dar events etc.
