Apple patent reveals new dustproof keyboard for computers

While this helped keep the laptop as thin as possible, the problem over time became that once debris like food crumbs or dust buildup did get under the keys, there was nowhere for it to go and no space for the key mechanism to be pressed. With Apple's brand being built on premium and highly engineered user experiences, it is no wonder that they are investing in keeping their keyboards free of any contaminants that could reduce this.

'Keyboard assembly [could include] a substrate, a key cap, and a guard structure extending from the key cap that funnels contaminants away from the movement mechanism, ' the patent, published by the United States Patent and Trademark Office reads.

A recently discovered patent by The Verge reveals that Apple is trying several new designs for the buttons on its keyboards to make its keyboard contamination-proof. It looks like an increment to its TouchBar system which was introduced in 2016 with the MacBook Pro.

In the patent application, Apple writes, by way of justification for its idea, "residues from such liquids, may corrode or block electrical contacts [and] prevent key movement by bonding moving parts".

The crumby keyboard on MacBooks may soon be replaced with something that actually works.

The patent was originally filed in July 2016, but was made public January 18, 2018.

So our advice is this: If you're in the market for a new Apple computer, your best bet is to wait until later this year when the company will likely update its entire roster of laptops.

Apple experimenting with touch-based keyboards is very interesting. Among the most common complaints about the keyboard is how prone it is to crumb and debris blockages.

It's been a while since we've seen any critical updates to the MacBook Air, so it would unquestionably pleasant to see a major refresh not long from now.
