"The new Magic Keyboard features a refined scissor mechanism with 1 mm travel for a responsive, comfortable, and quiet typing experience. The Touch Bar puts powerful shortcuts front and center, and Touch ID provides fast authentication. A dedicated Escape key allows quick switching between modes and views. And the inverted-T arrow keys enable fluid navigation whether you’re flying through lines of code, navigating spreadsheets, or gaming."

Sounds like they've listened to some of their feedback. Haven't used the touchbar, but a dedicated Escape key while retaining touchID for authentication and the touchbar for those that like or use it, seems like a good compromise.

The escape key is back, people. It's happening.

They removed it? Is this how far Apple is out of touch with technical users?
