Apple has revamped its 13-inch Macbook Pro with the new Magic Keyboard seen on other devices earlier. Today’s announcement completes a full revamp of Apple’s laptop lineup and the end of its experiment with the old butterfly keyboards. The company had received quite a few complaints from users about those keyboards breaking down.
The company had earlier brought the Magic Keyboard to its new Macbook Air, 16-inch Macbook Pro and the iPad Pro.
