Apple has received regulatory approval for its next MacBook laptop, possibly a 13-inch device, with redesigned Magic Keyboard and scissor switches.

The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has approved a “portable personal computer” from Apple in a filing, 9to5Mac reported on Monday.


The new laptop will have the scissor-switch keyboard like Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro, as all other MacBook devices sport butterfly keys.

The unreleased product that stands out is model A2289 and Apple detailed that it is a “portable personal computer” running macOS 10.15.

“It’s not certain that model A2289 will be a 13-inch MacBook Pro but an Apple notebook with the new Magic Keyboard would make sense as would the 13-inch Pro (or its successor) being released following the 16-inch debut,” said the report.

Apple introduced butterfly keyboards for its MacBook and MacBook Pro from 2015 onwards, with home switches beneath each key that minimize thickness.

However, the butterfly keyboards are considered one of “the company’s worst design decisions due to their penchant for failure due to small particulates like crumbs or heat issues”.

According to Macrumors, butterfly keys use a butterfly mechanism that’s different from the scissor mechanism used for traditional keyboards.

“It’s called a butterfly mechanism because the components underneath the key resembles a butterfly’s wings, with a hinge in the centre rather than overlapping like a pair of scissors.” (IANS)

Sports betting has become increasingly popular among the youth in recent times

Sports betting has been around for centuries for the audience to not only watch the sport but to get more deeply involved in the match. It is a fun and often profitable activity for the viewer to win some extra fortune or simply get some extra sweat while watching the game. At first glance, sports betting may look like it's pure luck, but when you indulge deeper into the activity you realize it is more of a calculative and research activity than just pure luck. We must note that yes, luck does play a certain role to some extend but a win is not completely dependent on luck, if you're putting your bets on a certain team you have to make sure to do some research about the players on the team, history of wins and losses of the team and compare the probability of winning and then place bets.

Even though sports betting has existed since the ancient era, it was not until recently that it became increasingly popular among the youth. This happened due to the legalization of the activity and the rise of online sports betting. The technological revolution has expanded the sports betting industry, offering the bettors new markets and ways to bet. The only major difference between online bookmarkers and traditional brick-and-mortar venues of sports betting is that now you can place bets online from your mobile devices, laptops, computers etc.
