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

2018 MacBook Pro brings True Tone support to LG UltraFine, Apple Thunderbolt displays

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.

U.S. President Trump says relationship with UK is very, very strong
But, as the two leaders stood together for a press conference, Trump said the British leader was doing a "fantastic job". British officials were stunned by the Sun interview, which was done in Brussels, according to a senior USA official.

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.
