I don't understand what you are asking about? What are you trying to show in your video?

I think it's ok) I've checked my MBP 13 2019 and it shows the same little trackpad physical movements at the top middle part. Never looked at that place, so wasn't aware of it till now.

The trackpad is set up to slightly deform under pressure. to see this in action, you’d have to check out the video Apple ran when they first announced the touchpad at one of their events.

If you check the video you can see when I press on the top of trackpad it physically moves down maybe 1or 2 millimeter , feel like it's loose , specially when it's hot!

Apple trackpads are trying to address 2 different types of users. The first likes the old style of using a trackpad, with physical button presses. This causes the pad to depress. The other user does it with finger taps. Look in System Preferences Trackpad to configure for the way you want to work.

OK. Thanks. I tried that on mine looks the same. I don’t think there is anything wrong with them.

I have a 2018 MacBook Air with the haptic trackpad and all of the edges can be pressed down about the same distance, so I believe yours is behaving as it was designed to behave. Enjoy the new MacBook Pro!

I’m not talking about the force touch,The trackpad itself physically flex down a little .

For me, anyway, it's hard to tell from the video. Since this is a new system, best to contact Apple and get it resolved.

I have the same flex on my 16" macbook pro, in fact I searched everywhere to find if someone else is having this issue. Dare I say, mine flexes even more than yours. So all good there I guess.

Apple just put a new top case in my MBP and it was delivered today. My touchpad moves under pressure too so I’m guessing it’s normal behavior
