But Apple claimed the update doesn't specifically fix the main problem with previous generation MacBook Pros, which is that the keys can get become inoperable because of dust.

The Thunderbolt Display will need to be connected to the MacBook Pro with Apple's Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter for True Tone to work. Surprisingly, the third compatible monitor is Apple's own Thunderbolt Display, which has been discontinued for several years now.

Depressurisation led to the emergency landing at Frankfurt Hahn airport shortly after 9pm. According to German outlet Spiegel Online , 33 passengers were taken to hospital.

Yesterday, Apple announced the new MacBook Pro's. The latest laptop teardown by iFixit shows that Apple has added a silicone membrane beneath each key, apparently serving the dual task of quietening typing and offering protection and dust and other unwanted contaminants. John Poole, Founder of Primate Labs, notes that the 2018 MacBook Pro is the most substantial upgrade in terms of performance since the introduction of quad-core processors in the 2011 MacBook Pro. We suspected at the time that Apple fixed the major keyboard issue that's been affecting all MacBook Pros since the 2016 redesign, but Apple would not confirm it officially. While a more reliable keyboard is undeniably a great selling point, it makes sense that Apple is not shouting about it at the moment.

This flexible enclosure is quite obviously an ingress-proofing measure to cover up the mechanism from the daily onslaught of microscopic dust. But they made no mention of a design change to the problematic butterfly mechanism used under the keys. Although this is just an opinion, iFixit has backed up its claim with an Apple patent, that shows the exact same design, even being labeled that the membrane was created to "prevent and/or alleviate contaminant ingress".
