New MacBook models with scissor-switch keyboards are supposedly The threshold
Apple plans new scissor-switch Keyboard for more laptops soon, according to the usually accurate analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. New MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models come out in the second quarter of 2020, Kuo says in a research note, by MacRumors. The move would follow a pattern set last year, the 16-inch MacBook Pro, which replaced the unloved and unreliable butterfly switch with a more traditional “Magic Keyboard.”
Kuo recently indicated that the current 13-inch MacBook Pro will be replaced by a 14-inch model, but he has not said whether that will happen with this second-quarter update. It is possible that the scissor-switch keyboard, the 13-inch model, before another overhaul later. Apple has corrected the shipping butterfly-keyboards on all the new laptop releases starting in 2016, so, of course, should be a priority.
Separately, Kuo was rumored to have a little more insight into his thoughts on Apple’s long transition to ARM processors. Kuo says MacBook models with custom processors by Apple to ship in the fourth quarter of 2020 or the first quarter of 2021, are designed likely, according to MacRumors. For more details on these machines were not, apparently, to be able to, but Kuo has to say that the new MacBook designs are planned for the second or third quarter of next year.
