I recently purchased the new 15" MacBook Pro with touchbar (late 2016). My trackpad is set to 'click' with either a press (audible click noise) or a tap. If I right click by using a two-finger press, the response on the screen is virtually instantaneous. However, if a use a two-finger tap, then there is a noticeable delay (generally under one second). When I first noticed the delay, this delay was about one second long with a spinning pin wheel sometimes popping up. I restarted the laptop, and the delay was significantly shorter, though still noticeable (maybe 0.25-0.5 seconds).
I'm trying to determine if it is a software or hardware issue before complaining to Apple. Is there a quick fix for this, or will I have to take the laptop to get repaired?
