    I'm really curious to so how this does or doesn't work in bootcamp. I wonder if Apple will be delivery a driver that will bring similar functionality on the windows 10 side.

    If you have any ideas and are able to test it once you receive your machine, please post it here.

    They already said it will simply display the function keys. I don't think there will ever be additional support, as I doubt that Apple will open up the API for it. It's not known for being an open type, "use the stuff you bought from us for a lot of cash in whichever way you see fit" kind of company.

    Unless someone reverse engineers the protocol and writes a driver for it, which is probably unlikely, since it looks rather complicated, and there's TouchID functionality, so Apple probably took steps to prevent it.
