For a product manufacturer focused on quality design, Apple planted a MacBook Pro at the end of 2016. It was originally hoped to improve the typing experience with a new butterfly keyboard, but it ended up with a series of problems. Although the new keyboard is designed to be slimmer, the reliability is quite fragile. Even tiny debris that happens to fall into the bottom can cause the keys to become stuck or damaged. The good news is that Apple finally realized this error and made some improvements.
In a few months, it has been widely rumored that Apple will introduce a new 16-inch MacBook Pro model, and will replace the butterfly keyboard with a scissor-type keyboard.
Initially rumors that Apple will launch a new machine sometime in October, but now the double 11 is over, we have not seen half of its shadow.
16-inch MacBook Pro Announcement ?
The latest news is that although the announcement and release date are not known, the new MacBook Pro is likely to arrive this week.
Previously, we have seen icons depicting the design of the new MacBook Pro in the beta version of macOS Catalina.
According to IDC analyst Jitesh Ubrani, inspections in the supply chain indicate that Apple may have begun producing the new MacBook Pro.
A report from foreign media 9to5Mac pointed out that Apple plans to hold a closed-door conference on its new laptop one day (and apparently not today).
In addition to the new keyboard design, the legendary 16-inch MacBook Pro is also expected to feature a 3072 x 1920 resolution screen, a 96W USB-C charging solution, and a narrower screen bezel (plugging the 16″ screen into a 15″ or so body).
Finally, although no company can do its best, we are amazed at Apple’s long-standing insistence on the butterfly keyboard.
If the company re-enters the traditional scissor-foot keyboard, I don’t know what Jony Ive, who has been obsessed with thin design but left at the beginning of this year, will think.
