Kuo statement on New MacBook with Scissor Keyboard 

MacBook release report by Ming-Chi Kuo did not provide clear information on the looks and the size of the model. Kuo said the primary supplier of parts for the scissor-switch keyboards in 2020 would be the Taiwanese manufacturer Wistron. Today the information was provided by Kuo in a research note for TF International Securities. Previously Kuo said that in the fourth quarto of 2019, Apple would launch 16-inch MacBook Pro with a scissor-switch keyboard. Due to the previous announcement, people were expecting the publication of the release of the new model will be done in a press release this morning. 

To help with making the machines thinner, Apple introduces a butterfly keyboard with the 2015 MacBook. The 2015 MacBook with a butterfly keyboard had many different types of issues; even though it received several updates still the issues like keys getting stuck or accidental double presses were not resolved. Apple launched a four-year free keyboard replacement program for New MacBook Models due to keyboard issues. 

There was an expectation that the keyboard issue will resolve with the 16-inch MacBook Pro Launch. The 16-inch MacBook Pro was going is the first MacBook to launch in October to switch back to the scissor-switch keyboard mechanism, but the release is delaying. Before Apple moved to its problematic butterfly mechanism, it was using scissor-switch. Apple introduced the last MacBook with scissor switches feature in 2015.
