Apple did not elaborate on what the new “material” was, but the repair experts at iFixit have completed a teardown of the new 15-inch MacBook Pro and discovered a “subtle change” made to the plastic covering the keyboard switches.
“Where 2018 models had a rubbery feel and milky look, this plastic is crinkly and transparent,” wrote iFixit in an email. “The metal dome over each key switch is subtly different, too. It could be a new surface treatment, and/or a tweaked alloy, possibly to alleviate problems with durability, bounce-back, or other issues.”
More details from the teardown to follow…
