When Apple introduced Touch Bar to its late 2016 MacBook Pro laptops, you would have assumed that the company would have made all of its apps compatible with the feature ahead of launch. For the most part it has been that case, save for Apple’s music editing/creation app GarageBand, which for some reason was missing Touch Bar support.

However for those who use GarageBand on Apple’s latest MacBook Pros, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has finally added support for the hardware feature. In the update to the app that will bring it up to version 10.2, it adds Touch Bar support which users can use to quickly navigate the app and to use various instruments.

We’re not sure what took Apple so long, especially when you consider that developers were quick to find frivolous ways to use Touch Bar, such as installing the original game of Doom along with Pac-Man and Lemmings. However it is possible that the delay could be due to the other features that are part of the update.

This includes a “new modern design with improved ease of use”, new drummer style options, new drummer loops, and the ability to remotely add new tracks to your project using GarageBand on your iPhone or iPad.
