✅ Much Better Keyboard
We’ve already mentioned this, but it bears repeating: one of the biggest benefits of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is that you won’t have any more keyboard problems — at least that’s the theory.
As part of its obsession with thinness, Apple switched to a new keyboard design back in 2015 known as the butterfly keyboard, and then stubbornly stuck with it for almost four years, despite a litany of petitions and class-action lawsuits from irate users. While Apple made several tweaks to the design in an attempt to fix the problems, these made almost difference at all, and about a year ago, Apple finally admitted it had a problem on its hands, and obviously began making plans to redesign its keyboards once and for all.
The new design actually reverts to the scissor-switch mechanism that Apple used before it launched the butterfly keyboard — a design that’s continued to work reliably even until now on pre-2015 MacBooks — although Apple has tweaked the old design in a few ways as well. The end result, however, should be a keyboard that not only works better, but actually feels better by offering slightly more comfortable typing thanks to the deeper key travel.
