Apple New MacBook Pro 2020 Release Date

Apple New MacBook Pro 2020  Release Date

Ming-Chi Kuo a famed Apple analyst announced that they are in the twilight of the lifecycle of the loathed butterfly keyboard. He also assured that Apple would release new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models with conventional scissor keyboards by Q2 2020. Last year Apple released 16- inch MacBook which is a resounding success due to a slightly improved version of the old scissor design and great thanks to its powerful internals. For the people who use Apple's laptop on a daily basis, this upgrade in the technology of keyboards will come as a great relief. The Butterfly Keyboard which was first released in 2015 has been a disaster, not least for Apple which was once famed for its instinctive and refined industrial design.

The butterfly keyboard gradually shrank the profile of Apple's laptop. The keys were easy to be jammed with dust and debris preventing key presses effectively and causing multiple presses of the same character due to small profiles. Later the problem was addressed with the third and fourth generations coming with the rubber membrane. This iteration in Butterfly Keyboard too was supposed to catch dust. Another miserable problem was to type on. The keys have a shallow profile giving the fruitlessly slapping a piece of glass. They are also loud and less efficient.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple could upgrade the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air with a scissor-switch keyboard. So we can expect a MacBook Pro and MacBook Air update near the future. Apple also could increase the display of 13- inch MacBook Pro model as well. Apple is also planning bigger changes for the MacBook lineup. By the last quarter of 2020 or the first quarter of 2021, Apple could ship the first laptop with an Apple-designed ARM processor. This change will have wide intimations for the developers. They will need to recompile their apps to run on ARM processors. This could be a brand new design for 2021 but the Apple plan could still change. However, one thing can be assured that Apple's laptops will have an overhauled keyboard by the end of this year.
