Users complain about MacBook Pro's new ultra-thin keyboard

Unfortunately for Apple, its latest MacBook Pro model isn't having the desired impact and I would even dare say that it's actually driving customers away. First, the users were quite angry when they discovered that the battery, which was a trademark feature for MacBooks doesn't last as long as it did before, then there were graphics-related issues that the IT giant fixed through a MacOS update and now, many people are complaining about the keyboard.

Lately, there have been a number of reports on Apple's support forums in which the users complained about random key-repeat issues, non-function keys and even some type of high-pitched noise that can be heard when pressing certain keys. However, the most common complaint is that the keys have an uneven feel and that's an issue I can relate to. From what I've seen, these problems mostly affect the 15-inch version of the MacBook Pro 2016, but there are a few people with 13-inch MacBooks complaining about similar things.

Most likely, the reason for most of these issues is the fact that Apple introduced an ultra-thin keyboard in the last MacBook models, redesigning its butterfly mechanism, but it's nothing official. The new keyboard design looks really cool, but it's not that practical as it offers less comfortable typing experience. If you're experiencing problems with your MacBook Pro's keyboard, you should take the device to an Apple Store and have the staff there take a look at it.
