Apple’s New MacBook Models Will Use Scissor Switch Keyboards


Ming-Chi Kuo is a tech analyst who specializes in predicting Apple’s every move. If this is the first time that you reading about him, then you should know that the tech analyst has a stellar track record of always staying one step ahead of Apple and all other tech giants when it comes to upcoming devices and software releases.

Nonetheless, the reason why we are talking about Ming-Chi Kuo today is because the analyst has just released a new report which reveals that Apple is looking to use the new scissor switch keyboard for all upcoming MacBook models.

Scissor Switch Keyboards

Even though MacBooks might deliver premium performances, the last lineup that Apple released is infamous for its faulty keyboard. Considering the fact that most people use MacBooks for work, it should come as no surprise that Apple is now determined to change that keyboards that it uses for MacBooks on future models.

“There have been successful developments in the new scissor keyboard. The new keyboard could improve the typing experience by offering longer key travel and durability by adopting glass fiber to reinforce the keys’ structure,” said Ming-Chi Kuo.

Improved Materials

The addition of glass fiber will not only increase the life durability of the keys, but it will also make it easier to type on them. This is a great change and we hope that the tech analyst’s predictions will prove to be true.

“We believe the partially refreshed MacBook Pro models will also adopt a new scissor keyboard in 2020; shipments of MacBook models equipped with a new scissor keyboard will grow 500-700% YoY in 2020. Though the butterfly keyboard is still thinner than the new scissor keyboard, we think most users can’t tell the difference,” added the tech analyst.
