If you have a 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar and you’re experiencing some issues with the row of function keys on the keyboard, then you might be somewhat interested to learn that you’re not alone. MacRumors has heard from a source that Apple has acknowledged that there is limited hardware issues with the laptop.

According to the document that was shared from their source, “Apple has identified a specific population of MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports) units requiring both solid state drives and the main logic board to be replaced when either has a functional failure. A message will appear when either the solid state drive or the main logic board part number is added to the repair of an identified MacBook Pro system. The message will indicate both the SSD and MLB must be replaced when either component has a functional failure.”

Basically what this means is that if you are one of those who are affected, you’ll be pleased to learn that Apple has essentially authorized free repairs for the problem even if your laptop is no longer under warranty. However it seems that if there are signs of liquid damage or other accidental damages, out-of-warranty fees could be applicable.

MacBook Pro owners who wish to get their laptops checked can do so by heading to Apple’s support page and scheduling an appointment at an Authorized Service Provider or Genius Bar.
