While Taika Waititi took a dig at the Apple MacBook keyboards during the Oscars 2020, it is still unknown whether he has used the Apple MacBook Pro 16” variant. The new Apple Macbook comes loaded with a new keyboard technology and bids adieu to the unreliable and shallow ‘Butterfly’ keyboard. Tech experts have been claiming that the latest technology in the MacBook keyboards is comfortable to type on.

However, the Butterfly keyboards have been shipping in MacBooks for over five years now. Thus, fans say it is high time now that Apple should replace their MacBook keyboards’ technology from something unreliable as the Butterfly mechanism to one like the new Apple MacBook Pro 16” model, after the Oscars 2020.

Some users, however, claimed that upgrading to the latest keyboard was still an uphill task
