MacBook Pro 2018 to Resolve Butterfly Keyboard Problem

7:42 PM

Apple will finally resolve MacBook keyboard problems with the upcoming MacBook Pro 2018. The company seems to have got the answer to the Butterfly Keyboard problem that all Apple laptop users with butterfly-style keyboard constantly complained of.

Tech giant Apple got into quite a controversy when a consumer class-action lawsuit was filed in the Northern California District by Girard Gibbs law firm recently. Many consumers had complained to Apple of the problems they faced with 2015 MacBook and 2016 MacBook Pro keyboard.

The lawsuit, which was published on the firm’s official website read:

“Thousands of consumers have reported that Apple’s new keyboard has resulted in sticky and unresponsive keys, which interfere with a user’s ability to type. Our lawsuit alleges that Apple’s butterfly keyboard is produced and assembled in such a way that when minimal amounts of dust or debris accumulate under or around a key, keystrokes fail to register. Attempts to fix affected keys require replacing the whole keyboard, which costs between $400 and $700.”

Girard Gibbs said that a petition was filed on by Apple consumers early this May. More than 20,000 Apple users had reportedly signed the petition.

Apple had released the Butterfly-style keyboard design with the 2015 MacBook. The company will most definitely take care of the problem at hand. DigitalTrends had in March 2018 noticed a patent application by Apple which showed an absolutely new keyboard structure. Sticky keys issue will be dealt with this new structure as it will prevent dirt from getting between the keys.

According to rumors, Apple might install a virtual touch-screen keyboard with haptic feedback in MacBook Pro 2018, thereby letting go of the sticky keys altogether.

Apple’s response to the lawsuit and their fans complaints regarding 2015 MacBook and 2016 MacBook Pro’s keyboard problems will be seen when the MacBook Pro 2018 releases. The product will most probably be unveiled during the Worldwide Developers Conference aka WWDC 2018 this June.
