When Apple introduced the new MacBook laptop a few years ago, they also introduced the new butterfly keyboard mechanism. It was supposed to offer up a better typing experience, but so far user experiences with it have been anything but. In fact, there have been many reports of users who claim that their keyboards have malfunctioned since.


Apple had previously launched a repair program for eligible devices, but according to a report from The Loop, it seems that Apple’s keyboard repair program has since been extended to cover all laptops that uses its butterfly switches, and yes, despite Apple claiming to have made changes to the keyboard in the newly-launched MacBook Pro, those will be covered as well.

This repair program will repair your keyboard for free even if your MacBook computer is no longer under warranty. It is a bit disappointing to see that despite it having been a few years, Apple has yet to get something as simple as a keyboard right. Many posts by MacBook owners have lamented the fact that the previous-gen keyboard was actually quite a joy to type on, versus the new butterfly keyboard.

Apple had previously claimed that only a small percentage of users are encountering issues with their keyboard, and if you are one of them, then you can take Apple up on their offer to fix your keyboard.
