Jon Prosser: Apple to Announce 13-Inch MacBook Pro Refresh Today

Apple today will announce a refresh of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, according to Jon Prosser of the YouTube channel Front Page Tech. Rumors have suggested that the new model could be a 14-inch MacBook Pro with slightly slimmer bezels around the display, in line with the 16-inch MacBook Pro replacing the 15-inch model last year.

The new 13-inch or 14-inch MacBook Pro is also expected to feature faster 9th-generation or 10th-generation Intel Core processor options, increased RAM and storage options, and a more reliable Magic Keyboard with scissor switch keys.

Prosser accurately leaked the April 15 launch date of the new iPhone SE.

There's never been any proof that scissor switch keys are "more reliable" than butterfly switch.
Butterfly keyboards are not reliable and have had to have replacement programs on every model. Scissor switch existed for decades without such a program.

Apple Is burning millions of dollars on the replacement program; $700 for every keyboard replaced. That is the proof any logical person needs.

(Except for all those years of reliable scissor keyboards that Apple sold before introduced the butterfly keyboard.)

My 2018 MBP has yet to die on me. Even with all the cookie crumbs and a bloody good drop onto concrete.
