These days both Microsoft and Apple have introduced new products, but not only new software products but also new hardware. And in both events, Microsoft and its products have been very present.

In the case of Apple, software products will be integrated into the new Touch Bar that Apple has incorporated into the new MacBooks. So this bar, which is still a reconfigurable touch panel, will have new options depending on the Microsoft Office program that we are using.

If we are using Microsoft Word, Touch Bar will have format and font options that will help us to work in a mode without distractions and not have to leave it at all. Something useful for those who use this mode. In the case of Excel, Touch Bar it will be reconfigured with each cell we pressThis way, buttons will appear with which to apply certain formulas or also use macros that the Excel sheets have.

Touch Bar will change depending on the Office program we use

In the case of Microsoft Outlook, Touch Bar will have functions and buttons that will improve the use of email and calendarsIt will also have a button to receive Skype for Business calls, as if it were a smartphone.

In the case of Microsoft Powerpoint, the user may have a complete map of all elements on the slide, in such a way that by pressing it we will select the object and we will be able to use or manipulate it as we wish on the slide.

All these extra functions make not only the Apple Touch Bar makes sense but also the Apple computers along with Microsoft software are more productive than other computers. Although the most striking thing for everyone is that Apple-Microsoft relationships continue to be as good or better than ever, something that the most veteran users do not stop drawing attention.
