Apple's most expensive new MacBook Pro costs an insane $6700

2018 MacBook Pro brings True Tone support to LG UltraFine, Apple Thunderbolt displays Apple's new MacBook Pros have a fix for their failing keyboard problems

Apple has a new program to address the matter, and the company is facing class-action suits because of it. If interested in the latest from Apple, be sure to check out its website, where the new MacBook Pro starts at $1,799. The team dismantles a 15-inch MacBook Pro to find out the new mechanism. But this is Apple we're talking about, so you shouldn't be surprised.

When Apple announced its 2018 MacBook Pro family yesterday, it said that the keyboards are now "quieter", but it made no mention of actually resolving the problem with the failure-prone keys. Apple confirmed the new keyboard isn't created to fix the dust issue, so things are still up in the air for now.

As per the patent application, the gasket would comprise of a layer that would act as a membrane to block dust particles. iFixit now says that's what the new MacBook Pro keyboard contains, and that the sound of the keyboard is quieter as a side effect of the silicone membrane. But, since the company is in the midst of several lawsuits regarding the reliability of its keyboard, it wouldn't really be able to come out and state that it has "fixed" the issue, without admitting fault.

Apple's new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models feature a slew of enhancements, including a third-generation butterfly keyboard, updated Intel chips, support for 32GB of RAM in the 15-inch model, and True Tone display technology. In fact, Apple has a patent for this exact tech created to "prevent and/or alleviate contaminant ingress". It's clear that there is an audible difference between a 2018 MacBook Pro and an older model, although iFixit believes this is likely a byproduct of the addition of the aforementioned membrane rather than any specific work having been done to quieten keypresses.
