Like its predecessor, The 2018 MacBook Pro comes with excellent built quality and the exterior colour option is still either Silver or Space Grey. In fact, when it comes to Physical appearance, the new 15-inch MacBook Pro is identical to previous model. Inwardly, however, the latest laptop is now upgraded with new specs. Also, with the aid of the T2 Chip, which just found its way into the MacBook Pro, the innovative laptop now possesses some enhanced AI-driven features. for instance, unlike previous model, this year MacBook Pro now comes with "hands free" Hey siri. Meanwhile, many old specs remain the same in the new laptop, still, a few changes have been made to this year 15-inch MacBook Pro;

 True Tone Display : The 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro Display still comes with 15.4-inch retina display and IPS-LED backlit, the aspect ratio is still 16:10 with native resolution of 2880*1800.

Back to MacBook, though, some experts said the last year MacBook Pro brightness peaked around 460 nits, in this latest model and as usual, Apple still boasts of 500 nits of the display's brightness. Furthermore, this year's display also supports DCI P3 wide colour gamut. However, the newly introduced feature for this year's model, unlike before, is True Tone Display, which was first introduced in iPad Pro in 2016, which can also now found in iPhone 8 and iPhone X. True Tone Display makes use of light sensors to measure the ambient light of your surroundings and automatically adjust the white-balance (white point) of the MacBook display to be in tune with the ambient light of the your environments, in other words, True Tone automatically adjust the MacBook Display's white point to be in tune with/reflect the colour temperature of the room.
