How the New MacBook Pro Solves Apple's Keyboard Problem

The document confirmed iFixit's discovery of a dust-busting layer, with Apple noting that the keyboard on 2018 MacBook Pro models is equipped with a "membrane" to "prevent debris from entering the butterfly mechanism".

"The keyboard has a membrane under the keycaps to prevent debris from entering the butterfly mechanism", state the Canadian and European versions of the document.

Canadian and European versions of Apple's "2018 MacBook Pro Service Readiness Guide" - also issued to fix providers - mentions the objective of the silicone in precisely the same wording. The document titled "Butterfly Mechanism Keycap Replacement MacBook Pro (2018)" also advises service providers to take care not to rip the membrane when performing repairs as it would require "a top case replacement".

Incidentally, Apple recently stated that the third-generation keyboard is exclusive to the new line of MacBook Pros, and therefore, defective keyboards can't be swapped with the latest one. There are now numerous Reddit threads of users documenting their grievances with the new i9 chip.

A number of MacBook and MacBook Pro users have complained about the sticky-key problem over the past few years, which causes keys to get stuck or become unresponsive due to dirt, dust, crumbs, or other debris obstructing the butterfly mechanism.

UNC Football excited about addition of Javonte Williams
Two years ago, the NFL publicly acknowledged for the first time a connection between football and CTE. Fedora also said there is no link between football and Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

You'll have to put the brand spanking new 2018 MacBook Pro with the Core i9 processor option in a freezer to get the advertised 2.9GHz speeds.

Apple maintains that the sticky-key problem wasn't widespread, but the company was hit with a few class-action lawsuits because of it. That may be while Apple isn't willing to publicly acknowledge the keyboard design issue that affected the previous notebooks.

However, since Apple has made the switch to a quad-core chip across its entire 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar lineup, it is now able to offer four full-speed Thunderbolt 3 ports on them.

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.
