Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    Hello Jonny, do you realize predictive is worthless for touch typists? Touch typists have their eyes focused on the screen, not on the keyboard, so, for the user to pay attention to those predictive actions that appear in the touch bar, he/she has to lower his vision and focus on the touch bar. Think about that, will ya?

      I think I did mention this, in a sense.

      If you’d read the section called ‘Predictive”, which is what I assume you’ve referring too, you’ll see that I write:

      “When you type in compatible apps you’ll get the predictive suggestions you already ignore in Mail, but you’ll also get email address suggestions when you begin typing an email. Other Mail features include predictive message filing, creation and flagging and a range of email formatting options.”

      Note the use of the phrase: “Already ignore’.
      I don’t think Touch Bar is of much significance to touch typists for the reasons you give — but where it does become useful is in doing things that you can’t do with normal keys, such as suggesting emails and the like
