Apple Inc. (AAPL) Slapped With Lawsuit Alleging Defective Keyboards

As a result of the defect, consumers who purchased a MacBook face a constant threat of non-responsive keys and accompanying keyboard failure.

The lawsuit, filed by Girard Gibbs LLP, claims Apple knew they were selling MacBook and MacBook Pros with defective keyboards.The lawsuit also alleges the keyboards on MacBook laptops with butterfly keyboards have a tendency to fail. The lawsuit also takes issue with Apple's repair process for faulty keyboards, saying it doesn't permanently fix problems during the repair process.

Fixing butterfly keyboard issues through Apple can reportedly cost as much as $700.

Because typing is the primary objective of laptops, over time, consumers have become more and more frustrated with the keyboard defect.

The lawsuit alleges that "thousands of consumers have experienced this defect", bringing forth many examples of users complaining of the same problems relating to their unresponsive keyboards. The petition has almost 24,000 online signatures, and its goal is 25,000.

Many people frustrated with Apple's butterfly keyboard design are hoping that the company turns things around with the next-generation MacBook lineup. Here are some reasons why you would be happy with just the standard iPad instead of the Apple iPad Pro.

Of all the iPads Apple has to offer now, the main iPad would be the iPad Pro since it comes with tons of new tech and features but of course, it does not come cheap as well.

If you are an owner of a model year 2015 MacBook or a MacBook Pro in or after 2016, then you are eligible to join the class action lawsuit.
