Apple has fulfilled its promise of reducing known issues on the 2018 MacBook Pro by implementing new materials on its 2019 MacBook keyboards.

iFixit has done a 2019 MacBook teardown to see what kind of changes were done and which materials were replaced. In the report, iFixit has noted that the membrane has been changed from being opaque and made from polyacetylene to a clearer one that’s made of polyamide.

The metal dome on key switches were also changed to eliminate common keyboard issues such as bounce-back and durability.

Apple has recently announced a refresh of the MacBook Pro to address issues with the keyboard and to introduce a new model that has an eight-core CPU speed. The 2019 iteration retains most of the 2018 variant’s technical specifications, including the flash storage, RAM, battery, Touch Bar and speakers.

The MacBook Pro 2019 comes in the 13 and 15-inch variant and can be bought at the Apple Store.
