Recently, Apple filed a patent for a new Touch Bar that features a Force Touch technology. The new Touch Bar will be equipped on the redesigned MacBook Pro models that will be launched next year.

For those who are unaware, the Force Touch sensor was first introduced with the first-generation Apple Watch, and was later brought to the trackpad of the MacBook in 2015. In that same year, the iPhone 6s was equipped with 3D Touch, which was essentially the same technology as Force Touch, but unfortunately was later discontinued.

Although the Force Touch technology was discontinued, Apple still seems to have plans to bring this feature back to the MacBook Pro models.

According to the Patently Apple Page, the company's newly registered patent shows a Touch Bar featuring a pin press pressure determination, which is the Force Touch technology.

Even though Apple didn't explain how Force Touch technology works, it is speculated that its function is to help users avoid unexpected clicks, of which quite a lot of MacBook users have been complaining about.
