The Butterfly keyboards on the MacBook line up have had their issues. A single crumb under there could signal an end to your typing days, or, at the very least, create a massive hiccup in productivity for a little while. If you want to maintain your MacBook Pro’s keyboard integrity for years to come, then grab one of these keyboard covers and type comfortably — while nomming on the crumbliest cookies you can find.

Uppercase GhostCover

Staff Favorite

Apart from having a sweet-ass name, the Uppercase GhostCover is a super-thin option for keeping your MacBook Pro’s keyboard protected. It’s made of flexible TPU, and it’s translucent enough so as not to diminish your keyboard’s backlight when you’re typing away in the dark. You can get yours for the model with the Touch Bar or without.

Super thin

Kuzy ultra thin cover

Kuzy’s cover adds a pop of color to your MacBook Pro’s keyboard with key outlines in mint green, pink, or purple. You can also grab a clear case, too. Each of these is for the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. That being said, if you don’t care to cover the function keys on your non-Touch Bar MacBook, then go for it.

DHZ transparent skin

DHZ makes keyboard skins for both the Touch Bar MacBook Pro and the non-Touch Bar model, complete with function keys. Like all the others on this list, this skin is made from TPU. It’s super thin so as not to interfere with typing and the already-low-travel keys.

Case and Keyboard cover

ProCase hard shell case and keyboard cover

If you want the whole package, many hardshell cases already come with keyboard covers, and ProCase’s cases are dynamite. There are a ton of color options to choose from for the 15-inch and 13-inch models. Just make sure you select the correct size before checking out.

Full Color

JRC keyboard skin

JRC has some really gorgeous keyboard covers that come in a few vibrant and striking colors, like “Tiffany blue” (yeah, that blue), “Apricot,” and “Rose Quartz.” It’s thin and made out of TPU, making it just as easy to remove and clean when you need to, and there’s also a clear option for you curmudgeons.

A worthy investment

The issues with the Butterfly keyboards on the MacBook Pro line have gotten better over the years as Apple has tweaked the design. However, getting any crumbs or other particulates underneath your keys can be super annoying to remove, and in worst cases, make your keys stop functioning. Getting a simple keyboard cover can help save you a lot of frustration

We highly recommend the Uppercase GhostCover as it sits super flat on your keys, making it easy to type on. Plus, it doesn’t seem to leave any noticeable marks on the MacBook Pro screen after leaving it closed for a while.

As someone who loves color, the JRC keyboard skin is a fun way to add a little color to your MacBook Pro. The backlighting is a tad dimmer when you use a full-color skin like this, but it’s not impossible to see in the dark.
