The ‘butterfly’ keyboards of the newer Macbooks are super thin, but they encounter a lot of problems. That is now widely known but Apple did as usual as if nothing was wrong. Now the complainants from the (social) media have nevertheless taken their right, thanks to a group of Americans who have sued Apple because they are convinced that the problems with the keyboards are due to a design error by Apple.
Which models are involved?
- MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015)
- MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016)
- MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, 2017)
- MacBook Pro (13 “, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
- MacBook Pro (13″, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
- MacBook Pro (13 “, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports )
- MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
- MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
- MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
And now better in the future
This is good news for owners of an Apple with this problem, although of course it helps the people who were already involved and have done expensive repairs or even swapped their computers no longer. You can also contact Apple if you are in that boat, and then there might be something to arrange. However, by the way, you still expect your computer to be gone for a while if it needs to be repaired because there is still a lot to be replaced to solve this problem.
Fortunately, Apple is busy to adjust the design of the keyboards, so this problem does not persist. Hopefully, we will soon be told at the next Mac event that the design of the new keyboards is their “best ever” and that a crumb can no longer ensure that your computer of more than 1000 euros is not useful anymore.
