Why Macs Don’t Have Touch Screens…
The Mac is not only an integral part of Apple’s ecosystem today, but it’s also the longest-running product in the company’s history.
Dating back to 1984. In fact, the Macintosh existed before Apple even had an ecosystem of different products.
And that puts it in a unique position today. Compared to more recent releases like the Apple Watch, iPad, and iPhone, the Mac uses an entirely different type of technology: A mouse and keyboard, instead of a touch screen.
This has caused many people to wonder whether or not Apple would eventually add a touch screen to the Mac, and therefore make it’s operating system touch-based like on every other product they offer.
But ever since reporters and customers began asking this question, Apple has remained adamant that a multi-touch Mac doesn’t make sense.
