Reddit forum users say that Apple plans to make a major change in the Magic Keyboard keyboard. One of them saw a prototype of a new model of such equipment. It was equipped with E-Ink technology, known from ebook readers.
It has been rumored for some time that Apple wants to make some changes to the MacBook Pro keyboards, where the function keys will be replaced with a touch-sensitive OLED panel. This solution will allow you to easily adapt the functionality of the keyboard to specific applications, thus facilitating their operation.
Perhaps the American concern will not, however, limit itself to a new idea only to laptops and will also apply it to desktop computers. One of the Reddit forum users claims to have been a guest at Foxconn’s event at the Chinese Tsinghua University.
There was a presentation of the prototype of a new generation Magic Keyboard keyboard, which instead of the traditional buttons, had displays in e-ink technology. The hardware was a very early prototype and was only for testing, so the chance that this keyboard will soon appear on store shelves is currently very low.
