Apple Discontinues 13-Inch MacBook Pro With Touch Bar

With the launch of the new M3 14-inch MacBook Pro, Apple has discontinued the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is no longer listed for sale through Apple's store, with the MacBook Pro section offering only 14-inch and 16-inch models.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro was the last Mac with a Touch Bar, so the sunsetting of the 13-inch MacBook Pro also means that the Touch Bar has been officially discontinued.

Apple's 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro was priced at $1,299, making it $100 more expensive than the very similar 13-inch MacBook Air.

Pricing on the new M3 14-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,599, which means the ‌M2‌ ‌MacBook Air‌ is the only option for those looking for a more affordable notebook at the current time.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro will still be available from Apple's refurbished store and from retailers until supplies run out.

As one of the few people who actually liked the Touch Bar (when I had a Mac that had one), I'm kind of sad it's gone now. It was a cool feature that brought that little bit of 'touch magic' to the Mac. It wasn't always needed, but I always thought it was nice to have as an option. Just kind of wish more apps took advantage of it, had a lot of potential.

Some people will miss this model… I genuinely liked the design. And the touch bar isn’t that bad… they never put their hearts into it.

It was also a relatively cheap way to get great processing power on the move…
