iFixit: Apple didn't cheat and really solved the keyboard problem in the new MacBook Pro

iFixit specialists got to the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, which was presented a few days ago. Is it true,

We haven’t had time to do a complete disassembly yet, but first of all we checked the keyboard, which became one of the main changes.

What's new

Apple used to use keyboards in laptopswith a “butterfly” mechanism, which has already given users severe headaches. The fact is that crumbs, dust and other debris got inside, as a result of which the keys “stuck” and failed.

After numerous complaints and even severallawsuits, Apple still decided to change the keyboard. Nothing new was invented, so the keyboard with a scissor mechanism, which was used before the “butterfly”, returned to the new generation of laptops.

Did it help?

iFixit specialists were pleased with this replacement.According to them, this keyboard looks almost the same as in older devices. And you can even install old caps on the keys, although then the lid will not close completely: the old keys are slightly higher than the new ones.

Plus, the keys come off easily, so they can be easily cleaned. As a result, there should be much fewer problems with the new keyboard.

“The key mechanism of the new 16-inch MacBook Proalmost identical to the desktop Magic Keyboard and MacBook models that came out before the introduction of the unfortunate butterfly mechanism. The new switches consist of two plastic parts, which makes them the most reliable,” iFixit concluded.
