The return key in Apple's keyboard layout has two functions, the return key ; and the enter key (which is produced by fn+return).

However, the new Macbooks has no symbol engraved on keyboard! Does that means it's not supported anymore? I know it sounds silly but I use the return/enter combinations a lot in my apps?

Appreciate any answer because I want to upgrade and not sure if the enter key is not supported or just missed in keyboard?

  • As far as I know, the layout remains engraved with both symbols (per Apple's website); if that's changed, do you have a photo of it? – JMY1000 Dec 29 '18 at 8:02
  • That is what i've read in the documentation, but since the 2017/2018 models many changes happened to the keyboard layout like the printed Arabic commands above the dead keys (الهروب,الرجوع,التحكم,العالي, ...etc) that's an image to the exact model i'm thinking of buying [link] imgur.com/a/0NmI3In – محمد سامر Dec 29 '18 at 8:19
  • Hrm, okay. Can't confirm 100%, but for a US keyboard set to the Arabic layout, I can confirm that return/enter functions as normal once the fn key is pressed. Link – JMY1000 Dec 29 '18 at 8:25
  • That is actually enough for me since i guess there is not much of a difference between the US and international layout. Sadly there is no way to confirm 100%. – محمد سامر Dec 29 '18 at 8:32
  • Cool! If you'd like I'm happy to post that as an answer so you can accept it and have the question closed. – JMY1000 Dec 29 '18 at 8:36

Can't confirm 100% since I don't have a keyboard with an Arabic physical layout on hand, but for a US keyboard on a 2018 tMBP set to the Arabic layout, I can confirm that return/enter functions as normal once the fn key is pressed.
