iFixit Repair Video on MacBook Pro trackpad replacement

Please change the name of this iFixit video as it is not a repair guide for the 2015 MacBook Pro. Makes us all look bad.

Note the number of down votes on it!

@mayer Thanks for keeping tabs on this. I sent it to our video team last week. They're aware of the issue, and it's on the to-do list. We'll let you know when it's been fixed.

I was asking because another question on it came up today and I almost put a link to the iFixit video on it:

@mayer I don't know what was the previous title but it seem to read correctly now, no signs of "Pro" around: "How To: Replace a Trackpad on a Retina MacBook!"

Many negative comments seem to point to the excessive presence in video of the narrator, many are the usual youtube clueless and pointless clutter.

@arbaman Just what MacBook Pro is this??? I've been into lots of MacBook Pro Retina machines but have not see this. Look at the comments! "Not A MacBook Pro"

@mayer It's not a Macbook Pro, it's the A1534 Retina Macbook: https://www.ifixit.com/Device/Retina_Mac...

I've noticed some comments complain it's not a Pro trackpad replacement tutorial, but it doesn't say anywhere it's supposed to be for the Pro. Maybe the caption could be made more detailed to rule out misunderstandings, but I wouldn't say it's wrong as such.

@arbaman OK, I see where the problem is coming from. I have not been into the MacBook, just the MacBook Pros. Problem is when searching for the MacBook Pro Guide, this one comes up and even I did not notice that it was just the MacBook. Maybe there its a way to make that clearer on the video and it seems many people have made the same error.
