    So what’s new on this keyboard other than the name?

    I was going to post the same. Also, will Apple cover keyboard repairs for free if it breaks, or does that only apply to the second gen?

    The keyboard is covered under the normal warranty, but the extended keyboard warranty only applies to the 2015-2017 MacBook and 2016-2017 MacBook Pro.

    This keyboard is the same as the Gen 3 keyboard on the 2018 MacBook Pro. So if there’s an Apple Store, or Best Buy, or some other place that sells Apple products near you, go in and try out the keyboard on the 2018 MacBook Pro. 2018 Air has the same one.

    Do all 2018 MacBook Pros have the new keyboard? Meaning, does the 2018 non-Touch Bar MBP have the new keyboard? That's the one we're looking at.
