    Hello everyone,

    I'm thinking of buying a MBP base model for Swift programming, and I know that Xcode has a simulator for the touch-bar, but do I need the one with actual touchID hardware if I want my app to require a biometrical login? or is there a way to debug and test it without needing it; same as the touchID with iOS?

    So do I need the one with touch-bar and touchID for this purpose? And also will I need it in future?

    Appreciate any help.
