There has been a lot of talk about the problems with the butterfly keyboard in Apple’s latest MacBook, and although the company has tried to remedy it all the solutions have fallen on deaf ears . One of the improvements to prevent dirt from getting under the key was to incorporate a plastic membrane around the edges but this has been useless in the end.
The only solution left for Apple to end the controversy of its keyboards is to discard the butterfly keyboard and implement a completely new one with a different mechanism. According to Ming-Chi Kuo the MacBook from 16″ would be the first computer to incorporate this keyboard with a scissor mechanism.
The scissor mechanism that will be incorporated into these new keyboards is expected to be available across the MacBook range by 2020 . Ming-Chi Kuo himself has created a calendar where you can clearly see the migration of this technology to the rest of the computers and that we leave you with below.
This MacBook from 16″ is more than confirmed to arrive by October with a LCD panel and a resolution of 3072 x 1920 pixels. The scissor-type keyboard will make our work much more productive, as we won’t have to stop every few seconds because a key has become stuck or because we haven’t been able to recognise the keystroke due to the dirt that accumulates.

Besides being beneficial for us this change, it is also beneficial for Apple. Since the company has been forced to open several keyboard repair programs on their latest Mac models with the economic expense that that ends up having for the company. With this change, this problem would be solved by reducing the workload of the technical service and consequently the money Apple has to spend on replacements.
