Apple has registered a patent that will make it possible to use touch keyboards in Mac computers. This was reported by the Digital Trends portal.

The corporation has long sought to reduce the thickness of Macs by abandoning the physical keyboard buttons. However, an obstacle to this is the lack of tactile response through the touch system of such keys.

To solve this problem, Apple is looking to develop fingertip pads. With their help, the user will get the illusion of pressing a physical button. It will also help reduce wear on the touch keyboard.

Whether the company will bring the idea to life is still unknown.

Earlier, we said that Apple is busy developing the first flexible folding device. The first folding “apple” novelty will be the iPad. His presentation may take place as early as 2024.
