Apple to do away with its Butterfly keyboard



Apple’s next iteration of MacBooks may do away with one of the company’s most loathed pieces of hardware to date, according to one prominent analyst.

In a recent forecast, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the company will likely scrap the MacBook’s Butterfly keyboard in favor of a new, more traditional, scissor-switch design following widespread complaints over the hardware’s durability.

‘There have been successful developments in the new scissor keyboard. The new keyboard could improve the typing experience by offering longer key travel and durability by adopting glass fiber to reinforce the keys’ structure,’ wrote Kuo in a recent analysis as reported MacRumors.
