MacBook Pro Brings True Tone to Apple Thunderbolt, LG UltraFine Displays

MacBook Pro Brings True Tone to Apple Thunderbolt, LG UltraFine Displays

As you may have heard, Apple released new MacBook Pros earlier this week, featuring the usual processor and RAM updates, along with True Tone displays.

When announcing the new MacBook Pro, Apple noted that the laptop features "an improved third-generation keyboard for quieter typing"; however, it tells the Verge that the keyboard was not created to address issues with dust and debris. That fix program doesn't cover the new models, which is another sign that Apple is confident about the tweaked design. The move was surprising since many expected Apple to unveil the refreshed MacBook Pro lineup at its September iPhone event. In the majority of the cases, the Apple Store should take back your MacBook Pro and refund the money or replace it with the 2018 variant. Less touted, however, was an "improved third-generation keyboard" which only promises to offer a quieter typing experience.

Build-A-Bear offers $15 vouchers after long ‘Pay Your Age’ lines
According to the company's website , you did not have to actually go stand in line to receive a voucher. Customers who show up to the stores can pay their current age for the popular stuffed animals.

Other than waiting to see how the keyboards of the 2018 MacBook Pros fare in the real world, there's one other way to find out whether Apple fixed the keyboard: iFixit's "official" teardown. While there are a few stores that still don't have stock of the new machines, they are generally well available in the United States. But they made no mention of a design change to the problematic butterfly mechanism used under the keys.

This flexible enclosure is quite obviously an ingress-proofing measure to cover up the mechanism from the daily onslaught of microscopic dust. In fact, Apple has a patent for this exact tech created to "prevent and/or alleviate contaminant ingress".
