Apple may finally abandon its controversial butterfly keyboard design
Since 2015, the keyboards of Apple’s MacBooks have used an underlying butterfly design to allow key presses. Now, after the departure of Jony Ive, it’s emerged the company may replace the mechanism, which has been fraught with issues since it was introduced. Users have consistently complained that keys stop working when dust finds its way into the system. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reported that from later this year a new design based on scissor switches will be introduced. The new system is said to include fibre glass to reinforce the keys.
