Apple’s butterfly keyboard apparently isn’t dead

The news: Even after years of relentless issues with the butterfly keyboard design and publicly shelving it, Apple is still working to fix it privately, according to L0vetodream.


  • Apple is “trying to improve on the structure” and fix it once and for all
  • Down the road, the butterfly keyboard may return

Our take: I feel like at some point it is okay to walk away from something that just didn’t work. Three or four times in a row. The whole world will be skeptical of any new keyboard mechanism that looks or sounds the same as “butterfly.”
