Leaked Document Exposes New MacBook Keyboard Fix

Image Source iFixit

While Apple confirmed the new keyboard on the latest MacBook Pros isn't created to fix the issue, the company quietly added a new silicone cover over the butterfly switches to protect against dust.

Apple is facing criticism for over its new MacBook Pro after a YouTuber claimed the laptop was being slowed down intentionally. It also states that "the procedure for the space bar replacement has also changed from the previous model", which reminds me of how I've seen colleagues frantically trying to click their space bar into working again.

The document is noted to be the Service Readiness Guide for the latest MacBook Pros, distributed to Apple Authorized Service Providers. However, it does link to another document entitled Butterfly Mechanism Keycap Replacement MacBook Pro (2018), which references the membrane under the keycaps as a method of stopping debris from entering the keyboard.

The video revealed that it took 39 minutes for the new 2018 MacBook Pro to complete the rendering job while the older model was able to do the same task in 35 minutes. This verbiage is missing for the American version of the same document, but it does refer readers to the aforementioned keycap replacement guide.

The Bank of England cannot negotiate with the government over the Brexit deal, but it does have a role in handing out advice.

A small number of users have been forced to return their MacBooks to Apple after tiny particles of dust or debris made their way into the butterfly switches and prevented keys from working properly. That may be while Apple isn't willing to publicly acknowledge the keyboard design issue that affected the previous notebooks.

Apple maintains that the sticky-key problem wasn't widespread, but the company was hit with a few class-action lawsuits because of it. Lee even went as far as to say the newly released 2018 version of the MacBook Pro is actually clocking slower speeds than last year's version with the i7 chip. Also, according to MacRumors' report, third-generation keyboards that feature this membrane will not be offered as replacements in the fix program.

That's because the 15-inch MacBook Pro's built-in cooling system couldn't keep up with the intense heat that the Core i9 produces as a result of its incredible performance.
