Apple may be gearing up to replace controversial MacBook keyboard design

Apple may be gearing up to replace controversial MacBook keyboard design

Apple might release a new MacBook Pro soon, as evident by a new filing that was briefly available on the Federal Communication Commission site. The latter was also an issue with the butterfly keyboard. The company has been using butterfly keyboard in its MacBook models since 2015 and despite regularly tweaking the keyboard's design, Apple has been unable to fix all issues. The new keyboard is expected to be cheaper to produce, although it won't be as cheap than an average keyboard design. "The new keyboard could improve the typing experience by offering longer key travel and durability by adopting glass fiber to reinforce the keys' structure", he wrote. The last time Apple refreshed the MacBook Pro 13-inch and 15-inch models was just a couple of months ago in May. "Shipments of MacBook models equipped with a new scissor keyboard will grow 500-700% YoY in 2020", he predicted. Hopefully it will have more travel than the butterfly keyboards, now in their third generation. According to a new research note from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is set to replace them with a whole new keyboard switch mechanism.

In March, Apple apologized and said it was "aware that a small number of users are having issues with their third generation butterfly keyboard".
