[Nerdy post incoming... prepare to be uninterested unless you're an Apple Kremlinologist like myself (surely Cupertinologist?!) ] Watching the introduction of the new MBPs I was curious what the technical model names would be for each device - especially the base model without Touch Bar. Traditionally identifying features in the naming structure have been size and year. In 2012 "Retina" was added to distinguish Retina models from non-Retina. Would this now happen with Touch Bar, giving us MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016) and MacBook Pro (13-inch, Touch Bar, Late 2016)? Well, a support document added today has answered this question. The official model names for the 13-inch are: MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports) MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) So there we have it! "Retina" will likely no longer be part of model names going forward (say goodbye to the non-4K 21.5" iMac at the next refresh!), and this is a real throwback - models have not been differentiated by their ports since 2003-2004 IIRC. These also break modern precedent in terms of having information after the model year. And, they must surely be the longest model names Apple has had!
