Apple will repair MacBook typing-related problems for free. Check out the models


Apple Inc said on Tuesday it will repair typing-related problems in ‘butterfly’ keyboards for an expanded set of laptops, that include newer versions of MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models.

The repairs would include fixing letters or characters that repeat unexpectedly, fail to appear, or keys that feel “sticky” and do not respond in a consistent manner, Apple said in a post.

The company has come under criticism on social media and Apple-centric blogs and websites for the issues related to its keyboard. Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will service eligible MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro keyboards, free of charge. The type of service will be determined after the keyboard is examined.

Last June, the company said it would repair keyboards on some models, and the announcement on Tuesday expanded the models to include more recent ones. Earlier, Apple has provided worldwide free replacement for such faulty MacBook batteries.
