Apple has a new program to address the matter, and the company is facing class-action suits because of it.

Are you planning to pick up a new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar?

Australian pricing for the mid-2018 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,699, with the 15-inch MacBook Pro from $3,499. But you know what else Apple has?

There is debate about whether Apple is being completely open about the new design of the keyboard.

That's the same keyboard that has come in for some pretty heavy criticism over the last couple of years and the fact Apple apparently refused to fix the issue this time around was mind-boggling.

In its announcement about the new computers, Apple said the "third-generation" keyboards had been created to be quieter, but made no mention of the sticky keys problem.

At the moment, all major retail Apple Stores have got the stocks of the new MacBook Pro from Apple, though some smaller stores and regions are yet to receive stocks of some unit.

As mentioned, Apple has officially just said that the MacBook Pro keyboard is quieter now, but iFixit believes that's a cover-up. Although this is just an opinion, iFixit has backed up its claim with an Apple patent, that shows the exact same design, even being labeled that the membrane was created to "prevent and/or alleviate contaminant ingress".

Other than waiting to see how the keyboards of the 2018 MacBook Pros fare in the real world, there's one other way to find out whether Apple fixed the keyboard: iFixit's "official" teardown.

Those new keyboards on the refreshed MacBook Pros provide a slightly quieter typing experience, but they retain the same short key travel from the previous generation.
