While Apple’s MacBook Pros are undeniably powerful (expensive, but powerful), if there is one weak point in the laptop it would be with 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 analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that Apple is expected to launch a new scissor switch keyboard for its MacBooks come mid 2020, where it could either launch in the later 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.
That being said, Kuo’s report has some implications behind it. There was no mention of the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro which was said to be launching at the end of the month. This is because this particular laptop is said to be the first to sport 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.
Recently, some evidence has been found in the macOS Catalina beta to suggest that this laptop is indeed real, but Apple has yet to announce a launch event which suggests that it might be launched anytime soon. Take it with a grain of salt, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more info.
