Apple plans to launch a new MacBook model with a scissor-foot keyboard between the end of the second quarter and the beginning of the third quarter of 2020, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst. In terms of time, the company is likely to be released at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2020) in June. In a research note from Tianfeng International Securities, analysts said Taiwan’s Wistron would be a major supplier of 2020 MacBook scissor-foot keyboard parts.

As for the popular 16-inch MacBook model, it’s unclear whether it will be delayed. It was previously reported that the new machine with a scissor-foot keyboard is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2019. Many people wanted Apple to announce it in a press release this morning, but unfortunately it didn’t come true.
Analysts had predicted that Apple would replace its entire MacBook product line with scissor-footed keyboards by 2020, including all MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models.
But the last time Apple used the keyboard was the MacBook Pro, released in 2015. The company then went down the wrong path with a butterfly keyboard, causing a series of problems.
