  • Apple’s big 2018 MacBook Pro keyboard cover-up

Regardless, it would appear that the new membranes will make things much more reliable moving forward - something that will need to be confirmed in the coming weeks and months.

If you've got no idea what we're talking about, recent MacBook and MacBook Pro models have reportedly been failing more than usual due to their delicate mechanisms - as soon as any crumb of material gets under a key, it becomes unresponsive.

Apple revealed a powerful refresh to its MacBook Pro devices earlier this week. But you know what else Apple has?

When Apple announced its 2018 MacBook Pro family yesterday, it said that the keyboards are now "quieter", but it made no mention of actually resolving the problem with the failure-prone keys. I have no inside dope on this (yet?), but to me the reason for optimism is that they're calling these keyboards "third-generation", not just a quieter version of the second-generation butterfly-switch keyboards. The latest laptop teardown by iFixit shows that Apple has added a silicone membrane beneath each key, apparently serving the dual task of quietening typing and offering protection and dust and other unwanted contaminants. In fact, Apple has a patent for this exact tech created to "prevent and/or alleviate contaminant ingress".

Keyboard warriors will appreciate a revised "butterfly" design which softens the clackety-clack of earlier models, although we'll have to wait and see if this also improves the keyboard reliability issues which have plagued earlier MacBook Pro machines. We suspected at the time that Apple fixed the major keyboard issue that's been affecting all MacBook Pros since the 2016 redesign, but Apple would not confirm it officially.
