Last year’s 16-inch MacBook Pro felt a bit like a return to form. Whereas the latest iteration of Apple’s flagship laptop didn’t deal with the love-it-or-hate-it Touch Bar and an annoying lack of connectivity, it did have a much better keyboard compared to previous models. The brand new MacBook Pro changed finicky butterfly switch keys with new mechanisms that make typing feel more natural and are more resilient to dust and rubble. Naturally, one query on Mac customers’ minds was when Apple would carry the brand new scissor-switch-equipped keyboard to the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air lineup. Following 9to5Mac, a late filing with the Eurasian Economic Commission (the ECC) means that we could see the extra ergonomic notebooks sooner rather than later.
The filing mentions a “portable personal computer,” so there is no telling which MacBook is getting an update. Apple often holds occasions in early spring where the company unveils new merchandise, so a brand new MacBook is introduced in a couple of months is sensible. Some customers are doubtless holding out on buying a new MacBook till the 16-inch model’s improvements hit the more affordable entries within the MacBook lineup, so Apple could be useful to launch new ones sooner somewhat than later. That mentioned there’s no assurance as to which updates the new notebooks will genuinely receive.
