Here's Apple's Lousy Attempt At Fixing the Keyboard on New MacBook Pros

With the 2018 MacBook Pro just about to enter the market, only time will tell whether the third-generation keyboards will stand the test of time, and do so quietly as Apple said they would.

If you were wondering what was so new and special about the new MacBook Pro Keyboards well we've got the answer for you!

Apple's new MacBook Pro is the first Mac to utilize the company's True Tone display technology, which uses multi-channel sensors to dynamically adjust the colors on your device's display based on the light in the surrounding environment. The new MacBook Pros also have TrueTone displays and a new Apple T2 chip to handle payment security. But Apple claimed the update doesn't specifically fix the main problem with previous generation MacBook Pros, which is that the keys can get become inoperable because of dust.

The Trumps meet Queen Elizabeth II
Shows how disrespectful to women he is if he is like that to the most famous woman in the world!", tweeted a user named Bea. It was a very royal affair as President Trump and the first lady met Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle in England Friday.

According to iFixit, the new MacBook Pros come with a silicone cover over the butterfly switches that are supposed to stop dust from intervening with the key mechanism. So whether they've attempted to address reliability problems along with the noise or not, I think they'd say the exact same thing today: only that they've made the keyboards quieter. Except the patent mentioned, the design was to help "prevent and/or alleviate contaminant ingress" and not to make typing quieter.

Other than waiting to see how the keyboards of the 2018 MacBook Pros fare in the real world, there's one other way to find out whether Apple fixed the keyboard: iFixit's "official" teardown.
