Although the Magic Keyboard is not new technology, it was first added in the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air in March, this move highlights a new era for Apple – the firm’s laptops will no longer feature the butterfly keyboard mechanism.

The new keyboard features a scissor mechanism with one millimeter of key travel, a physical Escape key along with Touch Bar and Touch ID.

Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing, said: ‘Whether you’re a college student, a developer, or a creative pro, the 13-inch MacBook Pro delivers powerful performance, a stunning Retina display, and all-day battery life in our most portable pro notebook.’

‘Today we’re adding the new Magic Keyboard, doubling the standard storage, and boosting performance, making the 13-inch MacBook Pro an even better value for our customers.’
