According to a report from DigiTimes, Apple is planning on delivering backlit scissor mechanism keyboards like the one found in the new 16-inch MacBook Pro to more of the company’s products, beginning with a new 13-inch MacBook Pro in this year’s first half.
Following several years of the unreliable and controversial butterfly mechanism, Apple reverted to a scissor switch keyboard with the 16-inch MacBook Pro. This has been widely positively received… Ming-Chi Kuo previously reported that Apple would refresh every MacBook in 2020 with the new scissor switch keyboard… We’ve also seen Apple register a new MacBook model with the Eurasian Economic Commission, which could very likely be the new 13-inch MacBook Pro.
MacDailyNews Take: The report also claims that alongside Apple’s iPad Pro refresh this year, a new Smart Keyboard with backlit scissor switch keys will also debut.
Any idea when?
I have just had my third MacBook Air refunded because of keyboard problems over two years. I will not buy another Apple computer with the butterfly keyboard.
