Apple's 2018 MacBook Pro Keyboards Include Dust Blocking Membrane To Prevent Failures

Apple's new Mac Book Pro butterfly keyboards have a dust-busting layer

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.

The company discovered that Apple has quietly fixed the keyboard problem by adding a flexible enclosure under the caps that covers the second-gen butterfly mechanism to prevent dust particles from getting in and blocking the keys.

In its announcement about the new computers, Apple said the "third-generation" keyboards had been created to be quieter, but made no mention of the sticky keys problem.

Yesterday, Apple announced the new MacBook Pro's. The move was surprising since many expected Apple to unveil the refreshed MacBook Pro lineup at its September iPhone event.

As of right now, both the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models are widely available for in-store pickup.

How widespread this issue is remains open to debate, but it's got serious enough that Apple has promised to replace any affected keyboard for free for a period of four years after the purchase date. The silicon cover also makes the keyboard quieter, but that clearly isn't its entire goal. Before publishing their customary teardown video for new devices, their gadget experts found an interesting rubberized layer underneath the keycaps of the keyboard, according to a statement.

There's a way for you to get your hands on the new 2018 MacBook Pro without having to spend extra dollars from your pocket though.

Apple even has a patent for the very same technology behind its third-generation keyboard.
