Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch goes on sale in India, prices start at Rs 1,99,900

Apple had launched the 16-inch MacBook Pro in India last month, discontinuing the older 15-inch variant. The biggest update includes a newly designed keyboard and general performance enhancements. The MacBook Pro 16 is now on sale on Indian e-commerce platforms and Apple-authorised retail stores in the country. Apple decided to steer clear of controversy this time by replacing the infamous butterfly keypad, which had numerous complaints. While the company did offer to fix all keyboard-related issues for previous models, users were out of luck as the keys kept getting stuck or stopped responding over time.
