Apple's MacBook Pro Unveiling Reveals a Butterfly Surprise


Apple may generate most of its revenue from smartphones and services like its App Store and Apple Music streaming service, but this week, the company focused on Macs.

On Tuesday, Apple unveiled a new lineup of MacBook Pro laptops that come with more processing power than ever. But arguably the laptop's biggest improvement is a new butterfly keyboard that is supposed to be free of the defects that caused keys to stick or stop working in previous models.

This is Fortune's latest roundup of the biggest Apple news. Here's last week's roundup.

Apple's week also included a lot of talk about how Apple will be affected by the U.S.-China trade war. And with the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) approaching, a number of rumors about software improvements in 2019 have already emerged.
