Apple might not release a MacBook Pro with an improved keyboard design until next year

  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.

Don't worry, that fabled 16-inch MacBook Pro hasn't vanished... in fact, it might be right around the corner. Bloombergsources hear that Apple may introduce the revamped laptop "as soon as" November 13th (that's tomorrow, if you're reading soon enough). The apparent leak doesn't share more about the design. It would still stuff a 16-inch display into a system roughly the size of today's 15-inch model, and would ditch the notoriously unreliable butterfly keyboard. However, the insiders claim the new MacBook Pro would cost roughly the same as the outgoing model, and would be available this week. You might not have to worry about Apple using this as an opportunity for a price hike.

Apple will reportedly introduce 16-inch MacBook Pro as soon as tomorrow

  Apple will reportedly introduce 16-inch MacBook Pro as soon as tomorrow And yes, it’ll apparently have a new keyboardThe 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.

Last month, Apple ’s MacOS Beta inadvertently revealed the 16 - inch laptop buried in a Beta builds Apple never previously acknowledged the existence of a 16 - inch MacBook Pro . A larger MacBook Pro not only would appeal to a wider audience of content creators and professionals , but its larger

The new 16 inch MacBook Pro delivers Apple 's largest and highest resolution mobile Retina display. Apple might someday enhance FaceTime on Macs , but it may also continue to be an area of improvement held for iOS devices, which people are more likely to be using to video chat with friends.

There's no mention of a corresponding update to the 13-inch model, although that's not surprising. Apple only just updated the smaller laptop in July -- it's a bit soon for a refresh, let alone a major one. And while Intel does have 10th-generation laptop chips, they're U- and Y-series chips meant largely for ultraportables rather than in-between systems like the higher-end 13-inch MacBook Pro.

This wouldn't be the last Mac update of the year, though. A tipster claimed that Apple would ship the redesigned Mac Pro in December, just barely squeaking into Apple's promised fall release window. There's no more news to share on that front, although there's certainly a historical precedent for this when the iMac Pro shipped in mid-December 2017. One thing's for sure: Calvin Harris got a significant head start.

Apple loses bid to stop class action lawsuit over MacBook keyboards .
Apple will have to face a class action lawsuit over faulty MacBook keyboards. Federal Judge Edward Davila has tossed out Apple's attempt to dismiss a suit accusing the company of not only hiding the fragility of MacBook butterfly keyboards, but of failing to provide an "effective fix" or full compensation for customers who paid for repairs. The suit claims that Apple violated multiple states' consumer protection laws, potentially leaving the company on the hook for many users who dealt with sticky or unresponsive keys when even a slight amount of debris slipped into their keyboards.
