Apple Will Fix Your Sticky or Busted MacBook Keyboard For Free

Covered computers include the 12-inch MacBook going back to early 2015 all the way up to 2017 models of both 13- and 15-inch sizes of the MacBook Pro. The new Keyboard Service Program for MacBook and MacBook Pro is Apple's first real acknowledgement that some of the low-profile keyboards on its latest notebooks haven't been quite as successful as initially promised.

However, not everybody has been impressed. This ultrathin design allowed Apple to make their laptops thinner than ever, but also seemed to trigger a flood of complaints about faulty keyboards, including one widely read Outline article by Casey Johnston and a song by Jonathan Mann.

Now, Apple has admitted to flaws in keyboard design and said that the issue made letters or characters repeat unexpectedly or do not appear and key (s) feel "sticky" or do not respond in a consistent manner. The move comes as Apple faces class action lawsuits, claiming that the MacBook maker designed flawed keyboards since 2015. Lending to the frustration has been the cost and process involved in getting an official fix. The design of these switches reportedly causes keys to stop working correctly if a mere speck of dust gets inside. Nor did it say how the new replacement keyboards will remain error-free. The Store will then examine the keyboard and swap the key or the whole keyboard depending on the situation. Macbook users with flawed keyboards can head to Apple or Apple Authorised Service Provider to get the keyboard serviced free of charge.

Nigeria 0-0 Iceland
Nigeria tried going toe to toe with Croatia in their opening game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, but ended up being overmatched. And they did in that counter that led to Musa's winning goal that was just spectacular and they deserved to win, I agree.

Anyone affected by the issue who has already paid to have their keyboard fixed is eligible for a refund, Apple said. It took a long time for this service program to arrive given how long users have been reporting problems, though.

While the the fix and replacement program covers costs and notes that Apple will fix both single keys as well as whole keyboards when necessary, it doesn't note whether the replacements will be a different, improved design that will prevent the problem from happening again (and again, and again).
