Apple could switch to scissor switch keyboards, starting with 2019 MacBook Air

Apple is about to update its entry-level MacBook Pro, FCC filing confirms

Interestingly, although Kuo says the new scissor switch will result in a thicker keyboard, it won't be by much. The new design will be more expensive than typical non-Apple laptop keyboards, but cheaper than butterfly switches. Now, it appears the company may be close to putting the problems behind it entirely, as a report from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo obtained by MacRumors suggests the company will use a new keyboard design in 2020.

And after multiple iterations, Apple might finally give up with the butterfly keyboard design. Note, the scissor switch keyboard isn't anything new for Apple as they used this layout before 2015.

The device could be a non Touch Bar model of the 13 inch MacBook Pro which was not replaced back in May, so this could possibly launch in September along with the new 16 inch MacBook that we have been hearing about.

Buttigieg: Trump's July 4th event 'makes America look smaller'
I mean, they're getting actually very sick, where people are getting sick, where the people living there living in hell, too. They even have a message for him: We're happy to settle for extra federal help, if you happen to're focused on giving it.

The 2019 MacBook Air will be the first Apple device to get the redesigned keyboard.

"Shipments of MacBook models equipped with a new scissor keyboard will grow 500-700 percent year-over-year in 2020". Although Apple says its 2019 MacBook Pro keyboards use "new materials", it's still the same third-generation design, and Apple's decision to include those units in its latest fix program suggests that they company isn't optimistic that it's going to solve the previous reliability problems. The new design will purportedly feature glass fiber to reinforce the keys. Eventually, Apple is expected to move away from butterfly keyboards completely. While many users simply hate how they feel, in other cases it's caused more serious reliability issues. The Cupertino-based giant has initiated a recall program for a limited number of MacBook Air models, citing logic board issues.

So if you've been holding off on upgrading your MacBook, you might want to hold out even longer now - if you can.
