Touch Bar Fully Discontinued on New MacBooks After Seven Years - MacRumors

Just over seven years after it was introduced, the Touch Bar has now been fully discontinued on all new MacBooks sold by Apple, marking the end of an era for a hardware feature that was loved by some users and derided by others.

I only played with the Touch Bar in stores. I thought it was a neat concept, but imperfectly implemented and then left without iteration for years. Honestly, I think there’s still a spot for it today. Half-height function row keys PLUS the Touch Bar above it could have been a winning combination.
