MacBook Pro TouchBar Enabled Laptops Now Approved for Exams

As you may know, there was a previous security issue with Mac TouchBar enabled laptops that prevented them from being used on numerous state bar exams during the February bar. Many law schools also banned them from being used on exams this spring. However, Pepperdine still allowed TouchBar laptops to be used but required the TouchBar be manually disabled by IT staff. Fortunately, the latest version of SofTest from Examsoft has resolved this issue and all TouchBar enabled laptops are now permitted to be used on exams without needing to disable the TouchBar in advance. SofTest will now automatically disable the TouchBar when the exam is launched and re-enable it once the user exits an exam. This will prevent any potential exam integrity issues so all users are cleared to take finals on their Mac TouchBar enabled laptops.
