As promised, let’s dive back into that shiny new keyboard! Despite the update, it remains a tough nut to crack, but the trifecta of heavy-duty suction, isopropyl alcohol, and patience pays off.
The Touch ID key may look like an ordinary keycap on top, but the undercarriage looks very similar to an iPhone 7 Touch ID sensor.
