Apple has revolutionized the MacBook Pro 2017 with the addition of the Touch Bar, making it a game-changing innovation that will no longer have repairable components and will not support macOS 14 Sonoma, which was recently unveiled. Apple stated that the product will transform into an innovation after being discontinued for 5 years, potentially eliminating the availability of repairable components in Apple Stores and Authorized Service Providers (AASP).
The 2017 MacBook Pro is the second laptop model equipped with the Touch Bar that will not be compatible with macOS Sonoma, announced at WWDC 2023 in June. However, the 2017 model without the Touch Bar and with only two Thunderbolt ports still has one more year before its inclusion in the game-changing innovation list. Currently, the only MacBook model with a Touch Bar is the 13-inch model, equipped with the M2 chip.
