Jul 04 2019 Tech analyst claims Apple is giving up on butterfly keyboardsTim Cook waved goodbye as Jony Ive pulled out of the car lot for the last time. The MacBook Pro is also getting the new scissor switch keyboard, but not until 2020. Apple fans who have bemoaned the butterfly keyboard should be optimistic about a return to scissor switches. Though the butterfly keyboard is still thinner than the new scissor keyboard, we think most users can't tell the difference. The keyboard will then make its way into a new MacBook Pro in 2020, he contends, with the butterfly keyboard being phased out over time. Interestingly, although Kuo says the new scissor switch will result in a thicker keyboard, it won't be by much.
