    On the Force Touch trackpad I believe it is off by default, and that is what I like. I want to hear something when I click my force touch trackpad.

    Er...you guys are correct. Silent clicking is "off." In my head I was thinking "mine clicks by default so clicking must be on."

    I shall have another coffee!

    What is "silent clicking"?

    I've never heard of it before.

    In the 2015 RMBP the trackpad does not move when you press down. So they play a click sound to let you know you have clicked. You can turn this sound off (silent click) or adjust the click volume up or down.

    Say what you will about the force track pad being a gimmick, I really like it.

    Sounds terrible.

    "Force touch" could have be achieved by pressing and holding, but then Tim Cook wouldn't have anything to talk about... besides his watch, that is.

    It's actually VERY nice, I can't go back to a normal trackpad now. The sound doesn't come from the speaker as it sounds like, it actually adjusts the tactic feedback to simulate a "louder" and more pronounced click.

    I prefer silent clicking on, but either way works for me.

    It's one of those things you really have to try for yourself, it's not something that can be described in words.

    Agreed. I am surprised how useful the force touch trackpad is.
