The Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro from Apple inspires fans of the Cupertino manufacturer to believe that there is a Keyboard for iMac and Mac Pro including OLED strips will give.

Functionality of a keyboard with a touch bar

The multi-functionality OLED strip is not a bad idea in itself. This could replace shortcuts, make functions easier to access and otherwise improve the workflow. But only if you are willing to look at the keyboard. From the point of view of a scribbler, I can say: I prefer to look at the monitor than at the keyboard when I'm working. But looking at the Touch Bar, if you want to use it, is also necessary with the MacBook Pro - and if you can get used to it there, you will also do the same with a Magic Keyboard. Here, trying is more than studying;)

Conclusion on the keyboard with Touch Bar for iMac and Mac Pro

A Apple Magic Keyboard with Touch Bar is conceivable and certainly an alternative for some user groups who prefer to use a stationary iMac or Mac Pro instead of the MacBook Pro. If you keep buttons in the same position, you can certainly call them up “blindly” at some point. If the overview varies, then you often see what your hands are doing. I am curious to see if a Mac keyboard with Touch Bar will become a reality!
