Despite several revisions and tweaks, the butterfly keyboard has tarnished the reputation of Apple’s notebook line up due to stuck keys, repeated keystrokes, and other problems, The Verge reported on Tuesday. Apart from its larger display, the 16-inch MacBook Pro will debut with a “revamped” keyboard that is “designed to be more reliable” than the butterfly- styled keyboards featured on MacBooks since 2016.

Apple 16-inch MacBook Pro detailed
Based on the reports that we have come across, the new MacBook Pro will come with the same physical size as the 15-inch MacBook Pro. However, the new model will come with smaller bezels, thus making way for a larger display. The display will reportedly feature a 3072×1920 resolution. As per report, it will be powered by an refresh of Intel’s Coffee Lake-H mobile processor series.
Also, a previously leaked photo suggested that Apple will likely ship a 96W USB-C charger with the 16-inch MacBook Pro. Based on the photo that surfaced online last month, the adapter has a model number A2166. It is about the same size as the 87W adapter used for the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
