While we've been all over the outside of Apple's newest MacBook Pro lineup, iFixit has, as usual, decided to look underneath the hood and find out what's changed from previous models. While it has not published a full teardown report yet, the repair outfit said that the keyboard may have a bigger change than Apple let on. Users have reported problems with the "butterfly switch" keyboards in new Apple laptops for a while saying they're too sensitive to crumbs and dust and can't have individual keys repaired. Still, the company said this iteration only has changes that make them quieter to use.
This is how Apple's new MacBook Pro keyboard is dust-protected
Apple recently introduced the all-new MacBook Pro with specially designed keys that are better protected against dust and crumb contamination.During its teardown session, repair firm iFixit found that each key on the MacBook Pro uses a silicone membrane as a shield against dirt, The Verge reported.While the silicone membrane ensures the keys are guarded against food particles, it also makes the keyboard quieter.
