Ming-Chi Kuo, the famous Apple analyst who has had a long list of accurate predictions on what the iPhone maker plans with its devices, has just announced some of the best pieces of news for Apple fans. He said that by 2020, Apple would go back to the more reliable scissor-switch keyboard on all MacBook models.
Many users hope that the 16-inch MacBook Pro will not feature the problematic butterfly keyboard anymore; in its place, they will have the scissor-switch keyboard back. And with Kuo’s announcement, it is possible that the change will come to all of Apple’s laptops next year. It is predicted that they will be launched in the second quarter of 2020.
Many people believe that the butterfly keyboard is applied so that Apple can reduce the thinness of its laptops to the point that was impossible before. A piece of evidence for that claim is the 12-inch MacBook launched back in 2015.
After being released, these keyboards prove to be more problematic than the traditional design when dust and small particles make their way inside. What users usually experience is unregistered presses and stuck keys. For this reason, Apple has been under fire for a few years now. To fix the problems, Apple offers a quite generous MacBook replacement program, aiming at the butterfly keyboards.
In his report, Kuo also shared his belief that the first quarter of 2020 would see Apple releasing its much-anticipated iPhone SE 2, along with a possible VR headset that can work with iPhones.
So what we can do now is to hold our breath for the comeback of the reliable scissor-switch keyboard on all MacBook lineup next year.
