Apple might not release a MacBook Pro with an improved keyboard design until next year
If you've been patiently waiting for Apple to fix the butterfly keyboard design it introduced a few years back, you'll have to wait just a little bit longer. While we saw a few reports pointing towards Apple introducing a 16-inch MacBook Pro with a more reliable scissor-style keyboard design sometime this month, a new research note from Ming-Chi Kui (via MacRumors) relays that we won't see a new keyboard design until 2020. Kuo doesn't specifyKuo doesn’t specify which MacBook model will be the first to re-introduce the scissor switch keyboard, but it’s long been assumed that it would be rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro.

The new MacBook Pro is expected to cost “about the same” as the 15-inch model, which starts at $2,399. That’s because, according to Gurman, it’s going to fully replace the classic 15-inch MacBook Pro in Apple’s laptop lineup. I think some people were expecting it to slot in above the existing options as a premium choice, but apparently not.
Aside from its larger display, the 16-inch MacBook Pro will mark the debut of a “revamped” keyboard that’s “designed to be more reliable” than the butterfly-mechanism keyboards featured on MacBooks since 2016. Despite several revisions and tweaks, the butterfly keyboard has tarnished the reputation of Apple’s notebook line due to stuck keys, repeated keystrokes, and other problems.
Bloomberg also notes that the high-end Mac Pro is set for release sometime in December, so after launching the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max earlier in the fall — followed by new AirPods late last month — Apple is ending 2019 with a focus on the Mac.
Apple confirms shutdown issue with the 2019 13-inch MacBook Pro .
Apple's MacBook Pro issues are still ongoing, as it recently issued a support document confirming an unexpected shutdown problem on the entry-level 13-inch 2019 MacBook Pro. According to MacRumors' forum, the model can suddenly shut down when it hits about 25 to 50 percent of its battery life and you can only turn it on again by connecting the charger. Apple has issued a support document describing how to handle the issue if it pops up. Once your MacBook Pro drops below a 90 percent charge, you should connect it to a charger, quit all applications and let it sleep and charge for eight hours, minimum. After that, update to the latest version of macOS.
