We received the first non Touch Bar version of the 13" MacBook Pro (Late 2016) which we ordered the day of the new MacBook Pro announcement.  The Touch Bar versions were not immediately shipping upon the new MacBook Pro's release.

Here is a look at what's inside the box of the Space Gray version of the 13" MacBook Pro (Late 2016).  The box is the standard premium packaging that one expects from Apple.

The 13" MacBook Pro (Late 2016) simply comes with an Apple 61W USB-C Power Adapter which uses USB Power Delivery for charging as well a USB Type-C to Type-C cable to connect between the charger and Mac.

Using software from Granite River Labs to look at the capabilities of the cable, we see that it just supports charging and USB 2.0 speeds.

The Apple 61W USB-C Power Adapter provides 12 watts (5 volts @ 2.4 amps), 27 watts (9 volts @ 3 amps), and 60 watts (20 volts @ 3 amps) using USB Power Delivery as analyzed in this review.

The 13" MacBook Pro (Late 2016) also comes with stickers and simple documentation.

The non Touch Bar version of the 13" MacBook Pro (Late 2016) has a similar style as the Apple MacBook (Early 2016) where one side has an analog audio jack while the other side has two USB Type-C ports.
