According to a report released earlier this month, Apple would change the keyboard design for the new MacBook Air models. According to the report released today, even if it is true that the keyboard design will change, the first device to use this keyboard design will be the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
One of the biggest problems with MacBook Pro and other Apple laptops is resolved this year. It is said that Apple will leave the controversial butterfly keyboard and move to a new “scissor mechanism, which has a much more reliable design and is used in all notebooks except the MacBook. Allegedly the new keyboard, the first 16-inch MacBook Pro’da will appear.
Ming-Chi Kuo, TF International Securities analyst in Asia, claims that Apple will use a new mechanism on keyboards. In a statement to MacRumors, Kuo said that the 16-inch MacBook Pro will come out with a new keyboard in the last quarter of 2019.
Apple’s troubled butterfly keyboard design has caused tremendous distress and has caused users to react greatly. In this keyboard design, the keys were often locked. Apple then launched the keyboard replacement program and provided free keyboard replacement for all MacBook models.
The new report also contradicts the report that Kuo predicts that the 2019 MacBook Air will have this new keyboard design earlier this month. According to the graph in today’s report, the first device to use the new keyboard design will be the MacBook Pro’s 16-inch model instead of the MacBook Air.
Switching to new keyboards will enable Apple to reduce costs. Butterfly keyboards were produced much more than new keyboards due to the problems it created. The updated keyboard will bring longer key durability. Therefore, it seems wiser to place these new keyboards in Apple’s largest MacBook Pro instead of the small MacBook Air.
