Apple may replace the questionable butterfly mechanism keyboards that it has utilized in all modern MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air PCs presented since 2015, as indicated by a note from top Apple examiner Ming-Chi Kuo.
The keyboard, which Apple has attempted to continue improving, is known for sticking or making various keypresses and has been an issue for certain clients. Apple has said that solitary a small amount of clients have issues with their keyboards, however it’s across the board enough that the organization started fixing all laptops with the butterfly keyboards for free in May.
Kuo said Apple will launch a MacBook Air with a new scissor-style keyboard this year, trailed by a new MacBook Pro with the updated keyboard in 2020. It may likewise enable Apple to build margins. “The cost of a butterfly keyboard is much higher (by 250–350%) than that of a general notebook keyboard because of low production yields,” Kuo said.
Kuo said Apple is going to a scissor system to supplant the butterfly mechanism, which was made to help keep MacBooks as flimsy as thin as possible.
“There have been successful developments in the new scissor keyboard,” Kuo said. “The new keyboard could improve the typing experience by offering longer key travel and durability by adopting glass fiber to reinforce the keys’ structure.”
Apple said a new keyboard design in the most recent MacBook Pro, propelled in May, would improve reliability by employing new materials. Be that as it may, the design of the keys continues as before, and they may at present stick.
