Since the arrival of the MacBooks in 2015, Apple has had a major problem. The Cupertino giant introduced the butterfly keyboard, which caused more problems than giving any promising advantages. According to 9to5Mac, the company is finally putting an end to it.
Apple Is Finally Ready To Bury The Butterfly Keyboard For MacBooks
According to reliable Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is finally giving up on one of the most frustrating elements of the MacBooks. He tells 9to5Mac that the Cupertino producer will finally put an end to the butterfly keyboard.
Apple introduced this in the MacBooks of 2015. At the time, the company could not have imagined that this new keyboard would cause so many problems. In recent years the keyboard has been provided with various upgrades but all in vain. The butterfly keyboard remains anything but a successful innovation.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo’s report, Apple will focus on a scissor-switch design. This new keyboard will first be implemented in the new MacBook Air model that will be released this year. Then the MacBook Pro from 2020 will take over the keyboard.
Ming Chi Kuo reports,
“We predict that the butterfly keyboard will eventually disappear completely.”
There are currently rumors that Apple will also be launching a 16-inch MacBook Pro in September. According to Kuo, this laptop, if it actually comes, will still be equipped with the butterfly keyboard. The same applies to the updated 13-inch MacBook Pro, which is also regularly mentioned. Of course we have to take this whole story with a pinch of salt.
Problems Keep Popping Up
As mentioned, Apple has made several attempts to fix the keyboard of the MacBooks. A new version of the butterfly keyboard was introduced three times, but the problems keep popping up.
A small piece of dirt or dust could disrupt the normal function of the keyboard. The result of this was that typing certain letters no longer worked optimally or did nothing at all.
