Apple won’t quit innovating as the company prepares to reintroduce the scissor-switch keyboard to more lapstops soon according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. As we prepare for the second quarter of the year 2020, the company plans to release the new Macbook Proand Macbook Air models for the new year which Kuo believes will have this feature coming with them based on research notes gotten by by MacRumors.
Apple hopes to switch from the unreliable butterfly switches with a more traditional “Magic Keyboard”.
According to Kuo, who recently indicated that the current 13-inches MacBook Pro will be replaced by a 14-Inch model but what is unknown is when that will happen which could be the second-quarter.
Meanwhile, there is every possibility that the scissor-switch keyboard will come to the 13-inch model first before others get the updates later on.
Apple has been shipping butterfly keyboards on all new laptop releases since 2016, so correcting course should be a priority.
Elsewhere, Kuo also provided little more insight into his thoughts on Apple’s long-rumored transitions from the ARM chipsets as the company plans on working on it’s own in-house processors which could be shipped by the fourth quarter of the year 2020 or at least, the first quarter of 2021 all according to reports from MacRumors.
Further details on these machines were apparently not forthcoming, but Kuo does also say that all-new MacBook designs are planned for the second or third quarter of next year.
But significantly, they will be expensive devices as Apple pushes it’s iPad line forward as being the mid-range hybrid everyone should buy while the MacBook are sort of like the high-end, pricey proper computers for consumers who can afford it.
