With the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar beginning to ship to customers, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller sat down for an interview with Steven Levy from Backchannel to talk about the new laptops. The Touch Bar, Schiller says, comes after years of experimenting with Multi-touch on the Mac, and finding that a full-blown, iOS-like experience just wasn't in the cards.
Levy was also able to ask Schiller about Apple's decision to include only USB-C ports on the new MacBook Pro, a decision that has frustrated many with a number of classic USB peripherals and accessories. Ultimately, Schiller believes, it's a non-issue.
