Apple’s MacBook Pros are undeniably expensive and powerful, however, its notable weakness is the keyboard. There have been multiple complaints about the keyboard, but if the rumors are to be believed, Apple could finally be addressing them in 2020.
In an updated research note by top Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that Apple is expected to launch a new scissor-switch keyboard for its MacBooks come mid-2020. According to Kuo, the laptop could either launch in the latter part of the second quarter or early third quarter. This means that if you were thinking about getting a new MacBook, you might want to wait until then.
Kuo also noted all MacBook Pros — 13-, 15- and the 13-inch MacBook Air — would eventually adopt scissor-switch keys in 2020, a design to be carried forward into 2021.
That being said, Kuo’s report did not mention the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro which was said to be launching at the end of October. This is because this particular laptop is said to be the first to spot the new scissor-switch keyboard design, so if Kuo’s latest note says the switch will only launch mid-2020, it seems to imply that this laptop could be delayed as well.
Take it with a grain of salt, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more info.
