There’s good and bad news about the 2018 MacBook Pro’s keyboard

However, in a tear-down by iFixit, analysts discovered a design change featuring a plastic film to protect dust/crumbs from entering keys.

iFixit's teardown, however, revealed that Apple took steps to prevent dust from blocking the keys, which is probably the among the top annoyances with the post-2015 MacBook.

Well, fast-forward to this month, and it seems that Apple has incorporated this technology into the 2018 MacBook Pro, adding a thin rubberized layer under the keycaps to cover the second-generation butterfly mechanism.

Despite Apple stating that new 2018 MacBook Pro keyboards were not created to alleviate key failures due to dust, a teardown has revealed a new barrier under the keys that could stop them getting clogged up.

Meanwhile, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro and the 15-inch MacBook Pro are priced at Rs 149,990 and Rs 199,990, respectively.

One of the side effects of the silicon membrane is that it means that key presses are now quieter (which Apple acknowledged), which addresses another complaint about the butterfly key mechanism.

With its shallow key travel, the butterfly keyboard - which made its debut on the 12in MacBook and 2016 MacBook Pros - divided opinion among macOS fans. This is not to mention replacing or fixing a broken keyboard is expensive.

That's the same keyboard that has come in for some pretty heavy criticism over the last couple of years and the fact Apple apparently refused to fix the issue this time around was mind-boggling. The new mechanism was spotted when iFixit dismantled the new 15-inch MacBook Pro keyboard.

There is debate about whether Apple is being completely open about the new design of the keyboard. Apple had previously patented technology created to "prevent and/or alleviate contaminant ingress".
