Apple Abandons Butterfly Keyboard

Apple, after struggling to overcome problems with the butterfly keyboard, the brand is planning to abandon the controversial “butterfly” keyboard used in its MacBooks since 2015. It will reportedly move to a new scissor-switch design which will use fibreglass to reinforce its keys.

The first laptop to get the new keyboard will be a MacBook Air model due out later this year, followed by a new MacBook Pro in 2020.

The new keyboard won’t be ready for the 16-inch MacBook Pro expected to be announced this September nor the updated version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
