Apple has begun selling its 16-inch MacBook Pro in India. The upgrade to the Pro lineup of Apple's notebooks was launched last month in the US.

The major feature on the 16-inch MacBook Pro apart from the improvements on specifications is the presence of a scissor mechanism keyboard which has 1 mm key travel. Apple has finally decided to retire its butterfly keyboard which was universally panned for the myriad issues it was plagued with. Apple had to admit last year that the butterfly switch was indeed defective

Dubbed as the ‘Magic Keyboard’, Apple claims that it sports a refined scissor mechanism with a 1 mm key travel. A physical 'Esc' key has been added to the keyboard whereas earlier it was present on the Touch Bar. The arrow keys have been given more spacing in an inverted ‘T’ design that is usually seen on standalone keyboards so that it's easier to distinguish between individual keys.

With an improved thermal design, the cooling fans have extended blades with bigger vents that provide a 28 percent increase in airflow according to Apple. The heatsink is now 35 percent larger to enable better heat dissipation compared to the 15-inch model.
