Respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared his new prediction, which concerns the keyboards MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. According to experts, in the near future Apple can refuse not too good and quite problematic butterfly mechanism, replacing it with something new.
Ming-Chi Kuo notes that the main reason for failure are numerous user complaints. Recall that the first problem with keyboards with the “butterfly” began almost immediately after their release. Users have complained about sticky keys and keys cease to work. Apple tried to correct the mistakes. However, they remain even now.
In addition, the analyst notes that the keyboard itself costs Apple quite expensive. For this reason, Apple may equip its notebooks new keyboard blocks with a scissor mechanism. For extra reliability mechanism buttons engineers reinforce with fiberglass.
According to the predictions of Ming-Chi Kuo initially, the new keyboard will appear in a MacBook Air, and the next year Apple will equip its MacBook Pro.
