Isn’t this old news? I’m pretty sure it was discovered that it ran the touchbar and Touch ID.It appears that an ARM based Apple custom T1 chip appears in the new 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro lineup, but what does the chip really do other than stores data like Touch ID fingerprints?

As in, what clock speed? What's it capable of doing? How much of it's functionality is currently bing utilized? That sort of thing.
Awesome. Thank you!https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook+Pro+15-Inch+Touch+Bar+Teardown/73395
Check out steps 6 and 9. They don't specifically talk about what the T1 chip does, but apple did mention it in the keynote as powering the touch bar.
I am new to programming for iOS and have focused on only learning the iOS SDK. As for the Touch Bar, I found this on the Apple website. Scroll down to “getting started” and “reference and sample code”. There should be enough resources there for you to get an idea of how to start programming.Awesome. Thank you!
[doublepost=1500678795][/doublepost]I have a question. If I wanted to run my own code on the touchbar, how would I go about doing so?
