Apple says new MacBook Pro keyboard won't fix sticky key issue

Apple says new MacBook Pro keyboard won't fix sticky key issue

"The Verge says Apple increased the battery capacity of both models to make up for the extra power draw of the new CPUs and the 15" machine's memory subsystem, and the site reports that Apple expects no change in either system's battery life as a result. In the United States, the new MacBook Pro models go on sale from Thursday and start at $1,799 for the 13-inch model, with the 15-inch model starting at $2,399.

Macs: Kuo claims that the MacBook, MacBook Pro and iMac are all slated for upgrades this fall, presumably with Intel's latest eighth-generation Core processors.

Back to School with MacBook Pro The new MacBook Pro is also part of Apple's Back to School promotion starting today and available to college students, their parents, faculty and staff through the Apple Education Store.

Apple also released new leather sleeves for its MacBook lineup.

Another frustration pro Mac users have been having recently is that the product cycle has seemed to keep stretching, with Apple taking increasingly long between product updates. Apple recently offered refunds and an exchange program for those who experienced stuck keys.

And I think you can have no doubt, Mr President, that this is an investment in common American and European defense and security. Trump on a range of issues, including a firm stance to stop the mass immigration that is vexing Europe.

Kuo predicted that Apple, in addition to launching three new iPhone models, plans to update almost its entire Mac and MacBook line-up this fall. Or, you could kick it up another notch entirely if you elect to splurge on the beastly six-core i9 with an unheard of (in a Mac) 4.8GHz clock speed (using turbo boost). On the other hand, the 13-inch MacBook Pro features Intel Iris Plus integrated graphics 655 with 128MB of eDRAM. In addition to graphics and computational acceleration, the Blackmagic eGPU is also the ideal docking hub for connecting devices such as keyboards, mice, Thunderbolt monitors, big screen HDMI televisions, high speed storage and more.

One of the smallest components in the new MacBook Pro could well end up being the most important.

It also features the T2 SoC and True Tone Retina display. The quartet also feature the Touch Bar interface and Touch ID authentication, enhanced with a dedicated secure enclave chip, the Apple T2.

The laptops will also have a new "Hey Siri" capability, that allows people to trigger Apple's voice assistant without having to hit a combination of keys beforehand.

Editor's note: Apple says the new MacBook Pro keyboard does not address the problems experienced by some owners. So yes - the keyboard is technically improved, but we aren't quite certain whether it will fix any of the issues that users had with the previous gen MacBook Pros.
