Apple will pay $50 million on MacBook's broken keyboard claim

The collective action against Apple was filed by seven U.S. states in 2018, and the MacBuk owners complained that the keyboard keyboards were very thin and incredibly fragile, and even because of the smallest particle, the mechanism could jam.

The suit referred to MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models released between 2015 and 2019. In 2019, Apple abandoned the butterfly in its laptops in favour of the scissor mechanism.

The residents of California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C., who changed the defective keyboard in the McBooks several times, can expect to pay up to $395 only once, up to $125, to replace individual keyboards with $50, and the plaintiffs can repair the faulty keyboard free of charge within four years of the purchase.

Apple has already sent the relevant documents to the San José Court in California, and the decision will enter into force after the judge's approval, informs Reuters.
