After Headphone Jack, Apple’s Now Removing the Escape Key from the Keyboard
Apple is expected to take the wraps off the new-generation MacBook later this week, but thanks to a leak that happened today, we can have a look at one of the features that received substantial upgrades as part of the overhaul.
The MacBook Pro keyboard will come with a new so-called Magic Toolbar that is essentially a touchscreen letting you perform a wide variety of tasks, while also displaying information related to certain activities, such as Apple Pay.
But although the addition of the Magic Toolbar is the most striking change, there’s also something a little bit unexpected. Notice the ESC key in the top left corner? Of course, you don’t, because the Escape key is not there anymore and, in fact, it’s no longer there on the keyboard.
