Apple (AAPL - Free Report) recently announced that it will service all eligible third-generation faulty MacBook keyboards without any charges. This comes after the company admitted in March that its butterfly keyboard mechanism continued to trouble a small number of users.
Notably, the presence of dirt inside keys often leads to repetition of letters while typing. At times, a letter does not appear when the corresponding key is pressed. Also, in some cases, the key(s) do not respond in a consistent manner.
Apple, which earlier serviced only first and second-generation keyboards, expanded the service to third-generation keyboards with this announcement per Wall Street Journal quoted by 9to5mac. Thereby, all Mac laptops that feature the butterfly keyboard mechanism are now eligible for the repair program.
The company noted that it is using a new material to repair the butterfly keyboards, which is likely to resolve the current problem. Additionally, it will also cut down repair time.
